Antigo American Legion team opens season with double victories
space
The Antigo American Legion Post Number Three baseball team opened up its 2018 season this past weekend, hosting Stevens Point on Friday night, before traveling to Marinette on Sunday.

The Typhoon, state runners up in Class AA a season ago, picked up where they left off, scoring two victories, downing Stevens Point 7-6, and Marinette 6-2.

STEVENS POINT

Friday night’s season opener at Kretz Park saw Wisconsin Valley Legion League opponent Stevens Point jump out to the early lead in the top half of the second inning, as Griffin Firkus drove in two runs with a clutch two-out single.

The Typhoon responded in the bottom of the third, with Logan Doering getting things started with a one-out double. Korbin Krueger followed and was hit by a pitch, before Wade Farmer reached on an error. Krueger was retired after being caught in a run-down, but Collin Meinert was then hit by a pitch to load the bases for Brady Tatro.

Tatro came through with a single, scoring two and tying the game at two apiece.

The score remained deadlocked until the bottom of the fifth inning, when Antigo again loaded the bases. Meinert led off and was hit by a pitch, Tatro reached on an error, and Garret Held drew a walk.

Cody Urban followed with a sacrifice fly to left field to put his team in front, before Nick Marshall and Eric Langseth each came through with back-to-back RBI singles. Doering’s fielder’s choice groundout plated another run, as the Typhoon ended the inning with a 6-2 lead.

The Sixers were not done however, tying the game with four unearned runs in the sixth inning, as two costly errors aided the Stevens Point rally.

Antigo went right back in front in the bottom of the sixth, with Meinert hit by a pitch for the third time in the game, this time with one out. Tatro was next up and delivered a basehit to move Meinert into scoring position for Held, who came through with an RBI single.

Urban came on in relief in the seventh and induced three Stevens Point pop-ups to secure the 7-6 win.

Marshall started on the mound and went five strong innings, allowing two runs on four hits, he walked four and struck out three. Meinert pitched the sixth and was charged with four runs, although none were earned due to Antigo’s defensive breakdowns.

He allowed a lone hit, walked three and struck out one.

Tatro and Marshall led Antigo at the plate with two hits each.

MARINETTE

Sunday, Antigo made the trek to Marinette for a single non-conference game against the Post Number 39 squad, and again jumped out to an early lead on the way to a win.

The Typhoon scored three times in the top of the second inning. Farmer scored the game’s first run on a passed ball, and Krueger delivered a clutch two-out, two-run hit.

Antigo added to the lead in the third, as Sebastian Noskowiak was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded for a 4-0 lead.

Marinette finally got on the board in the fifth, with a two-out RBI single from Trevor Bloch, which plated two runners.

The Typhoon however, tacked on two insurance runs in the sixth, courtesy of an error by the Marinette second baseman which allowed a pair of runs to come home.

Noskowiak shut down the Marinette bats from there, as he pitched a complete game to earn the victory. Noskowiak allowed just the two runs on six hits, he did not walk a single Marinette batter, while striking out five.

Urban was Antigo’s leading hitter at the plate with two base knocks.

The 2-0 Legion team is back in action tonight, returning to Wisconsin Valley Legion League play with a home game against D.C. Everest. First pitch from Kretz Brothers Park is set for 7 p.m.
