Huskies Win at Willmar Extends Streak to 5

06-06HuskiesEauClaire29The Duluth Huskies (8-4) extended their winning streak to five games with a convincing 7-2 win over the Willmar Stingers Sunday night.

The Stingers got on the board first in the bottom of the 2nd inning with a lead off home run from shortstop Tyler Leffler, his first of the season. This would end up being Huskies starting pitcher Alex Strizak's only blemish on a solid outing, allowing five hits and striking out six over 5.1 innings of work. Strizak would also earn the win on the night.

The Huskies wasted no time tying the game up in the top of the 3rd as Logan Busch hit in Elijah Dilday for his 2nd RBI of the season. Duluth then took the lead in the 5th inning by plating three runs. Stingers starting pitcher Zach Strecker, the eventual losing pitcher, was pulled from the game after giving up walks to the first two batters of the inning, Steven Neutzling and Logan Busch. Neutzling came around to score the first run of the inning off an Alex Greene single. Cal Stevenson and Jean Figueroa would also score later in the inning on a fielder's choice and pass ball, respectively.

Catcher Dominic Miroglio was the only Husky to record multiple hits in the Sunday's game. Miroglio collected two hits, including his team-leading 4th double of the season, and one RBI.

The Huskies finish their series with the Stingers tonight at 7:05 p.m. before heading home to Wade Stadium to take on the St. Cloud Rox Tuesday, June 9th, at 6:35 p.m.
