The WLB Wolverines held on for a 8-7 win over the Trojans from LJHS on Wednesday night at Miller Field. Trojan's Andrew Cline was pinned with the loss on the mound despite a solid 3 2/3 innings pitched. After a rough 5-run first inning, Cline settled in until giving up 2 in the 4th inning, his final inning of work. Ian Howard relieved Cline and only gave up a single run in the 5th while striking out 2. For the Wolverines, the combination of 8th graders Daulton Miller, Drew Eimer, and Sam Gleason held the solid hitting Trojans to 2 in the first, 3 in the 2nd and 2 in the 6th. Eimer got the win and Gleason picked up a 1+ inning save for his first of the year.

The Trojans took the early lead on Cline's 2-run blast over the right center field fence, his first of two in the game. Cline added another 2-run blast in the 6th inning to cut the WLB to a single run. WLB answered back in the bottom of the first inning with 5 runs on 5 singles and a sacrifice fly. LJHS tied it up with 3 runs in the top of the 2nd inning on a RBI singles by Jake Baker and Jaden Leadley. The score remained tied through the 3rd inning before the Wolverines ran 2 across the board on a solid 2-run single by Jacob Langley. An insurance run was added in the bottom of the 5th inning when Camden Nelson reached on a hit-by-pitch. Pinch runner Brady Miller made it all the way to 3rd base on a well-executed bunt by Lucas Jones. Trey Schilling knocked in B.Miller with a ground ball to shortstop, which proved to be the eventual winning run.

"This was one of the those fun baseball games to be a part of tonight," said WLB head coach Jeff Nelson. "Both teams pitched, hit, and played well enough to win tonight, we just happen to push one more run across than they did. Our guys looked much better at the plate tonight taking some excellent swings and doing a much better job with 2 strikes. Coach Amberg does a great job with his guys at LJHS. We had 2 great local umpires who did a great job and we all had a fun time at the ballpark tonight."

Next game: Friday, August 18 at CEL 4:00pm

LJHS 2-1
WLB 2-1
