Menominee's Nowack Throws No-No
Menominee's Red Wave Legion baseball team traveled up to Kingsford Tuesday. Behind the outstanding pitching of starter Nathan Nowack, the Red Wave won 11-0 in five innings.
Taking advantage of seven Kingsford errors, Menominee put up nine runs in the third inning to give themselves a cushion. With Nowack clicking on all cylinders, the Red Wave gave him more than enough run support. Nowack struck out 10 batters in just five innings while not giving up a hit or walk, let alone a run. If not for an error, Nowack would have thrown a perfect game.
Levi Kempka, Jacob Rivard and Kyle Struve each recorded two hits for the Red Wave in the victory.
Marinette Falls to Southwest>/b>
Tuesday evening the Marinette legion team traveled to Green Bay to take on Southwest. A run in each of the second and third innings for Southwest were the difference as they went on to take a 2-0 victory over the guys in purple.
With Matt Osterberg on the bump for Marinette, everyone knows runs are difficult to come by. However, Southwest's Zach Pethan surrendered just four hits to Marinette, and no runs.
Southwest's Cole Schabow connected on a leadoff double in the second inning. Quinn Dellise singled to score Schabow and they took a 1-0 lead. In the third, Brett Whiffen led off with a single and eventually came around to score, doubling the lead to 2-0.
Marinette hitters weren't able to crack Pethan as they left eight runners stranded on base.
Tommy Sawinski went 1-for-1 with a double in the contest for Marinette, Jack Farley, Nick Daye and Austin Marquardt were each 1-for-3.
Osterberg suffered the loss, giving up two earned runs on six hits, while racking up 10 strikeouts.
