The Antigo Red Robin baseball team traveled to Tomahawk last night picking up a 6 – 0 victory over the Hatchets.
The Robins got things going in the 1st inning when Garrett Held drove in Wade Farmer with a 1 out single to give Antigo the 1-0 advantage. The Robins would add another run in the 2nd inning as Held once again singled, this time driving in Eric Langseth who walked earlier in the frame putting Antigo on top 2-0. After a scoreless 3rd inning the Robins would tack on 2 more runs in the top of the 4th as Matt Winter scored on a Farmer base hit and Farmer would later score on a wild pitch making it 4-0 Robins. The score would stay that way until the 7th when Antigo added a couple of insurance runs, both coming after 2 outs. Sebby Noskowiak reached with a 2 out single and took second on a wild pitch, next batter Nick Marshall drove in Noskowiak with a double to right-center, which would be the Robins on extra base hit of the game, Marshall then scored on a single by pinch hitter Zack Jaje to give the Robins the 6-0 victory.
Cody Urban picked up the win for Antigo going 6 strong innings. Urban gave up just 4 hits while striking out 8 and issuing just 1 walk. Brady Tatro threw the 7th giving up a hit and striking out 3.
Offensively Antigo pounded out 11 hits in the contest led by Matt Winter, Wade Farmer, Garrett Held and Nick Marshall who each had 2 hits. The Robins stranded 10 runners on base.
With the win the Robins improve to 8-1 on the season and 2-0 in the GNC, Tomahawk falls to 1-3 overall and 0-2 in conference play. Antigo will be back in action on Thursday when they host the Lakeland Thunderbirds at Kretz Brothers park in a double header. Game 1 is scheduled to begin at 4pm.
