Huskies Fall to Blue Anchors, Split Series

Duluth, Minn. — The Duluth Huskies (18-13) fell to Alexandria 5-2 Friday night, splitting their series with the Blue Anchors.

The Blue Anchors started off the scoring with a lead-off home run in the top of the 2nd by designated hitter Ricky Sanchez. Alexandria would tack on one more run in the top of the third before an Alex Greene double knocked in two runs to tie the game for the Huskies in the bottom half of the frame. These would be the Huskies’ only two runs allowed by Blue Anchor starting pitcher Max Knutson. Knutson, the eventual winning pitcher, struck out seven and walked one in eight innings of work.

Alexandria would take the lead for good in the 5th inning as they rattled off three straight hits and collected two runs off Toby Anderson, his last inning of work. Toby struck out two over five innings.

The Huskies are back at Wade Stadium tomorrow where they will start off their series with the Rochester Honkers at 6:35.
