Home runs lead Red Robin JV squad to twin bill wins|
Home runs abound for the Red Robin junior varsity baseball team Friday as it hosted Rhinelander in a Great Northern Conference contest.
The Hodags never stood a chance in game one as Justin Spiegl, Alex Nagel, and Max Nowinsky all hit bombs for Antigo.
Assisting in the 19-0 victory were hot hitters Trevor Seis 4-for-4 with two doubles and Nowinsky going 4-for-4 with 2 home runs and a double.
Nagel pitched four strong innings giving up one hit and striking out seven Hodags. Devin Gress closed the final inning in relief to preserve the shutout.
In Game 2 Antigo shutout Rhinelander 10-0.
Antigo again won game two on good pitching from Arin Verhagen who went five complete, striking out two and allowing two hits.
Controlling the offense for Antigo were Jed Weix 2-for-4, Seis 3-for-4 with a home run and Verhagen 2-for-3 with a double.
At Shawano Saturday Antigo won both games 3-2 and 8-4. From game one the Robins had four total hits but its defense played well and the hits all came at the right time. Weix, Seis, Spiegl and a key double by Nowinsky gave the Robin bats the boost they needed.
In the night cap Cameron Noskowiak pitched a seven inning complete game giving up seven hits and striking out five batters. Top hitters for the J.V. team were Seis 2-for-4, Luke Osborne 2-for-3, and Nagel hitting 3-for-4 with a double.
Topping the TBirds
The Antigo’s junior varsity baseball team used solid pitching, aggressive base running and timely hitting to sweep a pair of games from the Lakeland Thunderbirds on Tuesday evening.
Game one was tied at one-all after three innings, but the Robins pushed across two runs in the top of the fourth and put the game away with five in the fifth for the 8-1 victory.
Antigo was lead at the plate by Nagel and Nowinsky each going 2-for-3 with a double. Osborne also doubled.
On the mound Nowinsky went the distance allowing a run on six hits and three walks while striking out seven Thunderbirds.
Game two saw Seis take the mound for the first time this season. Seis turned in a gutty performance working out of several jams to get the complete game win. The two complete games gave the rest of the well worked pitching staff a much needed rest. Seis allowed two runs on seven hits and four walks, striking out eight along the way.
At the plate seven different Robins chipped in one hit each with Noskowiak and Gress ripping doubles and Verhagen adding a triple to drive in a big late inning run.
Antigo scored two in the first and held a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the fourth when they added two more. Lakeland wouldn’t go away though as they combined two hits and a pair of walks for two runs in the top of the fifth. With the tying runs on the bases Seis shut the door with a strikeout to end the game.
With the sweep Antigo improves its record to 12-0 on the season.
Antigo travels to Tomahawk today for a twin bill with the Hatchets, before hosting Mosinee for two on Saturday at Senior League Park.
