We just finished up the regional round of the WBA playoffs Sunday afternoon and came away with two big wins! Saturday afternoon we took on the Interwald Woodticks, winning that game 5-1 behind an outstanding performance by our drafted player Cody Leitner. Cody through all 9 innings and recorded 8 strikeouts on the day. Several players had multiple hits that game as we went on to win.
Our next match-up was Sunday afternoon against the Whitehall Wolves. This game was far and away the definition of a pitchers duel. Eric Munson was on the mound for us, and as usual, dominated the game. Only giving up 2 hits and 1 walk in his shutout performance. Mike Brookshaw drove in our first run of the game in the bottom of the 6th inning on a base hit to left. The outcome ended up 4-0 in our favor, along with an advancement to the State tournament in Viroqua.
Our first game will be played Saturday afternoon at 1:30PM against the Osseo Merchants. We’re looking forward to this match-up and the coming weekend! Thanks again to all of the support from traveling and non-traveling fans!
