Whitney's Robinson shuts out Vallejo 2-0 in D-III baseball opener

Whitney sophomore Josh Robinson scattered three hits and also had two hits to lead the Wildcats to a 2-0 win over Vallejo in a Sac-Joaquin Section Division III outbracket baseball playoff game today in Rocklin.

The win moves Whitney (16-9) into Wednesday's 4 p.m. quarterfinal game against four-time defending section champion Yuba City (22-4) at McAuliffe Memorial Ballpark near Sacrameto State.

Robinson, a right-hander, helped Whitney land the Capital Athletic League's No. 2 playoff berth.

He was 4-2 with a 1.79 earned run average and hit a team-leading .408 during the regular season.

He's been a contributor since the start for Whitney. As a freshman last season, Robinson batted .424 and was 2-2 on the mound.

Whitney is coached by Robert Dorchak, in his first season with the Wildcats after coaching previously at Inderkum and North Hollywood.
