Bucks Put Down Huskies, Sweep Series
Error free baseball usually translates into victories, and that was exactly the case for the Bucks on Sunday night. Offensive production, lights out pitching and solid defensive play earned the Bucks their 11th victory and a series sweep against Duluth.
Landon Simpson earned the victory for the Bucks in his season debut. Simpson started for Waterloo last year, and his return could not have started off on a better note. Over five innings, he allowed four hits and only one run.
Patrick McGrath took the loss for Duluth after giving up four runs (two earned) over four innings. The Huskies bullpen was solid, allowing just one run over the next five innings. The deficit by that point was insurmountable, though.
Adam Dian earned the save for the Bucks, fanning all three batters he faced in the ninth inning. Dian has now retired seven consecutive batters on strikes, after striking out four straight in Saturday's win.
Cody Sedlock will be on the mound for the Bucks on Monday for the series opener against the Thunder Bay Border Cats. First pitch is scheduled to be at 6:35 p.m.
