The Whitehall baseball team is searching for consistency.

The team recorded a come-from-behind win against Bolton but followed that performance up with a lopsided loss to Hartford, then then blew out Argyle earlier this week.

Carl Rehm picked up his second win of the season on Tuesday and Whitehall’s offense recorded 14 hits in a 17-1 victory over Argyle.

Brandon Steves went 3 for 4 with a pair of RBIs and Colby LaChapelle added two RBIs and two hits.

Argyle scored a run in the first inning, but Rehm shut them down the rest of the way and Whitehall scored 16 runs in the first four innings to cruise to their fourth win of the season.

Last Wednesday against Bolton, Whitehall scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to break open a tie game and earn the 13-9 win.

Rehm earned his first win of the season, striking out nine in seven innings. Codie Bascue went 3 for 3 with three runs scored, Josh Hoagland was 2 for 4 with three RBIs, and Brett Christian scored three runs.

Mitchell Jordan was two for three with three runs and Hunter Brown scored three times.

Whitehall spotted Bolton three runs, including two unearned in the first inning. The Railroaders got two of those runs back in the bottom half of the frame but Jordan’s double in the second inning put Bolton up 5-2.

Trailing 8-4 in the bottom of the inning, Whitehall scored five runs on five singles to take a 9-8 lead.

Tied at 9-9 in the sixth inning, Whitehall loaded the bases on three walks and after Bolton made a change at pitcher, scored the winning run on a balk. The Railroaders added three more runs in the inning to pick up their third win of the season.

On Friday, Whitehall traveled to Hartford and was dismantled by the Tanagers, who recorded 16 hits en route to a 21-1 victory.

Cody Palmer allowed two hits and struck out eight batters in six solid innings for Hartford. Andy Sipowicz was 4 for 5 with five RBIs and Robert Petit added four RBIs on three hits.

Christian and Justin Hoagland recorded the only hits for Whitehall.

Whitehall improves to 4-2 and will face a tough Salem team that’s directly above them in the standings on Friday afternoon.
