Exciting games highlight Little League opener
space
The Antigo Little League season got underway Saturday under beautiful blue skies at Al Remington Field.

A poignant opening ceremony in front of a good crowd started the day, with Deb Black, the first girl to play Antigo Little League in 1975, throwing out the first pitch to another female Little Leaguer, Breleigh Akright.

The game of the day was in the Majors division, as Parson’s Pirates won a well played pitcher’s duel with the Aspirus Antigo Clinic Mets, 3-2.

The game was tied at one in the bottom of the fourth, when Carter Wassen smacked a solo home run to give the Mets a 2-1 advantage.

Fine defensive plays from Brycen Pownell and Wyatt Washatko limited the Mets to the lone run in the inning.

The Pirates scored two runs in the top half of the sixth to take the lead, courtesy of a walk and back-to-back hits from Devin Pool and Mason Gray.

Gray and Pool led Parson’s at the plate with two hits each. Gray drove in two runs, Pool tripled and scored twice.

Gray and Pool combined with Ethan Hall on the mound, tossing a three-hitter for the win.

The pitching quartet of Wassen, Jacob Hanus, Riley Guenthner, and Mitch Meyer struck out a total of 15 Pirates’ batters in the tough luck loss, allowing five hits.

Wassen had two of the Mets three hits, while Braden Stanke added a single.

The other Majors contest saw Tommy’s Braves hold off a comeback by the CoVantage Diamondbacks in a 9-8 win.

Down 8-0, the D-Backs score eight times in the fourth to tie the game. The rally began with a two-run single by Alec Knapkavage.

Ty Kohler tossed two no-hit innings on the mound, settling things down for his team.

A late run by the Braves sealed the one-run win.

The lone Minors contest of the day was an 18-4 win for the Antigo Times Blue Claws over the 40 et 8 Box Cars.

Hayden Thill, Collin Berger, and Carson Rhode combined on the mound for the win, allowing just three Box Cars hits. Thill struck out six in his two innings of work.

Breleigh Akright tripled and singled to lead the Claws at the plate, while Thill blasted an inside-the-park-home run, and Alex Brittenham had two singles.

Berger tripled, with Rhode, A.J. Kohler, Dawson Hirt, and Haylen Liethan adding base knocks as well.

Marcus Washatko, Zander Zwirschitz, and Aiden Kielcheski recorded the Box Cars hits, while Gauge Guenthner, Liam Burt, Washatko and Zwirschitz all saw time on the mound.
