Sam Sheehan Sets Westmont Saves Record; Luke Coffey Homers in 9-6 Win

Senior pitcher Sam Sheehan set the saves record at Westmont, as the NAIA 7th-ranked Warriors defeated Marymount, 9-6, in a non-league baseball game on Tuesday at Russ Carr Field

Sheehan recorded his 11th save of the season breaking the previous mark set by Tony Tubbs during the 1988 season. Sheehan faced four batters without allowing a hit.

The Warriors tallied three runs in the seventh and Sheehan pitched the ninth to secure the win.

In a 6-6 game, Stephen Larson retired two Marymount batters with two runners on base in the seventh inning.

Westmont broke the tie with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. Graylin Derke walked and scored on a double by Michael Valentine. Valentine advanced to third on the throw to the plate.
Luke Coffey came  up as a pinch hitter and belted a two-run homer to left to give the Warriors a three-run lead. Coffey is a freshman from Dos Pueblos High.

Westmont (36-7) called on Sheehan to close out the game.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
