12U All-Stars look for final win before state
space
Antigo’s 12U All-Star team took down Wausau American Tuesday evening to help improve its tournament credentials. With the win over Wausau, Antigo now needs just one victory to advance onward from tomorrow’s championship game in Rib Mountain at 6 p.m.

In Tuesday’s outing, Alex Fritsch led off the top of the first with a double while Brady Renfro drew a walk. Eli Fleischman delivered a two-RBI double to set the pace for Antigo. Wausau American, however, responded with two runs of their own after the first to tie the game.

Chris Krueger continued the lead-off double trend for Antigo, allowing Fritsch to take advantage of two-out, RBI base hit to plate Krueger. Wausau would not keep silent, answering again in the bottom of the second to tie the game 3-3.

Antigo kept its scoring consistent for the remainder of the game, scoring either one or two runs in every subsequent inning of the game. Wausau attempted a rally in the bottom of the fourth but was stymied when Nevin Cornelius picked off a runner from behind the plate to garner the third out of the inning.

Antigo’s pitching staff remained calm, holding Wausau scoreless until allowing one run in the bottom of the sixth. Renfro was brought in to close out the game for Antigo and did just that, striking out the last two batters he faced.

Fritsch led Antigo in time on the mound, pitching 2 1/3 innings in which he allowed three earned runs off of four hits while striking out four batters and walking just one. Fleischman finished his two innings of work on the day without allowing a run or a hit, and also recorded three strikeouts with two batters walked.

Fritsch and Fleischman were each 2-3 at the plate as well, with both young men hitting for a double and a single apiece. Krueger ended his day 2-2 with a double, a single, an RBI and a run scored while reaching base once on a walk. Renfro was 1-1, having also been walked three times, where he was good for two runs scored and a run batted in.
