Prairie Du Chien Bats Erupt in Five-Inning Win
It can be said that Prairie Du Chien pitcher Cory Check held the Little Chute bats in check in the opening round of state tournament play, as Little Chute managed just three hits in an 11-0 defeat Wednesday.
Prairie Du Chien secured the victory thanks to 10 runs in the third inning, sparked by Drake Coleman’s two-run home run. Every batter in the Prairie Du Chien lineup recorded at least one hit and seven batters drove in at least one run.
Coleman was 2-for-2 with 2 RBI, as was Hunter Sheckler, who also scored a pair of runs. Chas Sagedahl, Jon Dyer, Peyton Hall and Gavin Greene each tallied two hits.
Caleb Robinson, Jacob Schnieder and Eric Heitpas were the only batters to reach base on singles for Little Chute. Connor Weigman took the loss on the hill.
