Red Robin boys swept Westfield 16-13, 14-4 in season opening double header
space
Saturday was a very good warm up to the season for the Red Robin baseball team as it traveled to Westfield in a double header versus the Pioneers. This was Antigo’s first opportunity to take the field as spring weather has kept local ballfields snow covered and inaccessible.

The Pioneers jumped on our newness to the season with a 6-3 first inning lead. Robin pitcher, Randy Krebs struggled from the start as he worked out a few cobwebs allowing the first five batters free bases.

Once Krebs settled in he forced Westfield to get off their heels and bat a little more defensively.

By the second inning Antigo had begun to warm up the batters box adding four runs, but it was the third that really set the tone for the outing.

Jake Maly and Rob Bastle fired off back-to-back doubles followed up with walks from Caleb Raddant and Corey Stensberg. Erik Schielke reached on a left fielder error while Blake Below took four balls leaving Cameron Noskowiak to close the inning on a home run and a 14-6 lead.

Westfield added three in the third and two in the fifth as it pinged away at Antigo’s lead. Bastle and Raddant gave the Robins its final two runs in the first game before the Pioneers closed out the sixth and seventh innings with three tallies for the 16-13 loss.

The lack of outdoor experience this season wasn’t showing for the Robins as it played a shortened second game with a 14-4 victory.

Westfield was unable to produce until the third and fourth innings of the twin-bill while Antigo had plated eight runs to its hosts four. As it approached the fifth inning with a rather healthy lead, Antigo expounded on its abilities adding six runs to leave Westfield scrambling. The Pioneers three, four and five batters in its rotation failed to reach a base as Antigo earned the 10 run win.

Gathering extra base hits in the game were Bastle (home run), Justen Wegter (doubles), Raddant (double), Dan Will (double) and Maly (double).
