Baseball: Niagara beats Crandon
NIAGARA, Wis. — Niagara’s pitching overpowered Crandon as the Badgers won their fourth straight game 4-1 on Tuesday.
The Badgers (5-8) started Anthony Hansen, who threw five innings and struck out 10 while walking one. He gave up no runs with a walk.
Landen Kaldor pitched two innings in relief and gave up a run on a hit with a walk.
“Really pleased with our pitching,” Niagara head coach Dean Neveau said.
While Niagara managed just four hits, the lineup avoided striking out at a high rate. Just one Badgers batter struck out.
“Kids got the bat on the ball again today so that was good,” Neveau said.
Josh Weber, Anthony Hansen, Elliot Peterson and Logan Bath had Niagara’s hits.
The Badgers scored on an RBI single by Hansen in the first. Kaldor hit a sacrifice fly in the third. Peterson’s fourth inning single scored Hansen. Ethan Sweig hit a sacrifice fly in the sixth.
