Typhoon sink the Red Wave in Legion ball
space
The Antigo American Legion Post 3 baseball team hosted Menominee, Mich. for a Fox River Valley North League battle on Tuesday, defeating the visiting Red Wave 7-1.

Menominee took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Adam Nolde drove in a run on a RBI single – but that was all the offense the Red Wave would generate.

Antigo tied the game in the third when Caleb Raddant scored on a throwing error.

Antigo added three runs in the fourth when Raddant hammered a two-run double and Justen Wegter added an RBI single.

The Typhoon added three insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth when Jake Husnick scored on a throwing error by the catcher on a pickoff attempt at third base. Rob Bastle later drove in two runs on a base hit.

Erik Schielke started for the Typhoon and pitched a complete game, allowing one run off three hits and three walks. He struck out four.

Matt Pulver pitched six innings for Menominee, allowing seven runs (four earned) off eight hits and four walks. He struck out one batter.

Raddant led Antigo with three hits, including a double. Bastle and Wegter finished with two hits each. Blake Below also added a double.

Nolde, Landen Maccoux and Andrew Leinonen combine for Menominee’s three hits.

With the win, Antigo improves to 16-7 overall including 10-2 in the Fox River Valley North.

The Typhoon will travel to Rhinelander on Thursday for a 7 p.m. game before making the trip to Marinette for a doubleheader on Friday. With Marinette standing at 8-0 in the league with six games to play, the outcome will likely determine the league champion.

Antigo's 17U Junior Legion team will begin regional playoffs tonight as it travels to Stevens Point for a 5:30 p.m. game. Other teams in the tourney competing for a state tournament bid at Union Grove are Rothschild-Schofield-Weston, Merrill, Plover, Marshfield and Wisconsin Rapids.
