Tatro, Jankowski homer, Kirsch shuts down Raiders in regional win
space
The Antigo Red Robins baseball team is moving on in the WIAA playoffs, after an 8-1 regional home win against Medford on Tuesday night.

The Robins dispatched of the Raiders for the third time this season, although this was the closest of the three meetings.

Medford hung around for three plus innings, trailing 2-0 in the bottom of the fourth before two big swings broke the game open.

Jesse Jankowski led off with a solo home run, Collin Meinert delivered a one out single and Matt Winter would later reach base on a fielder’s choice with two gone, setting the stage for Brady Tatro. Tatro proceeded to blast a three run homer and the Robins were in command at 6-0.

Jesse and Brady had huge at bats in the fourth to open the game up, Head Coach Scott Farmer said. Guys put some nice swings on the ball, just hitting them right at people, if we continue to do that we should be just fine.

Antigo added two insurance runs in the sixth.

Winter singled to score Matt Arndt, who had singled with one out, and Winter would later come around on a wild pitch for an 8-0 advantage. The Robins had a chance to end the game on the ten run rule, but Garret Held grounded out with two aboard to finish the inning.

Medford avoided the shutout in the seventh, plating one run, but Nick Marshall would close the door, recording the final out and backing up a terrific outing by starter A.J. Kirsch.

Kirsch went six and two thirds innings, allowed just two hits, while walking four and striking out four.

A.J. was typical A.J. today, Farmer said. Other teams are having a hard time squaring him up good, when he gets in front of hitters like that he is tough to hit, his outing allowed us not to go into the bullpen too deep.

Offensively, Arndt, Winter and Meinert had two hits each, with Arndt recording a triple and Meinert a double. Winter scored three times.

Antigo has won 21 in a row, as they improved to 22-2 overall and are right back at it tonight with a regional championship on the line.

Another Great Northern Conference rival, Mosinee will be the opposition. Mosinee rallied to defeat Lakeland last night 7-4.

Antigo defeated Mosinee twice during the regular season, winning 11-6 in Antigo on April 25 and 6-2 in Mosinee on May 23. Mosinee, a two seed in the division two regional, holds a record of 12-9 on the year.

Now we need to focus on Mosinee as they are going to come in here with a chip on their shoulder to knock us off, Farmer added. They are a good team and we will need to be focused and capitalize on their mistakes, if any, and limit ours.

Tonight’s game is a 4:30 first pitch from Kretz Park. The winner will play the winner of Seymour and Marinette on Tuesday in Clintonville in a sectional semifinal.
