UW DII 8, Bradley 6
The Badgers fell behind in the first inning, but had more consistent offense than Bradley could handle on Saturday night at Ahuska Park in Monona.
Bradley was able to get the potential tying run to the plate after a single in the seventh made the score 8-6. Alex Kueck came in to get the final out and close the door and record the save.
UW DII 12, Bradley 2
For whatever reason the Badgers struggled to muster much offense early against Bradley in Sunday morning’s double header falling behind in the first inning for the second consecutive game. Wisconsin would take the lead with a three-run fourth inning and never look back.
The three-run fourth inning was highlighted by freshman Joe Fahning’s 2 RBI single. Fahning would come around to eventually score the winning run.
In the fifth inning, Tony DeBartolo delivered a bases clearing double to contribute three of the five runs scored in the inning. The Badgers then were able to walk of Bradley in the sixth inning by scoring four more runs to activate the ten-run rule.
Alec Nelson and Hunter Bailey combined to only allow one hit.
UW DII 17, Bradley 6
Once again, the Badgers fell behind in the first inning. Once again, Wisconsin clawed its way back and won via the ten-run rule.
Sophomore Tony DeBartolo smoked a 3-run home run to give the Badgers a 7-6 lead in the second inning that they would not give up.
Every starter would score at least one run for the Badgers and Nick Clement and McCormick Sinclair provided three innings of shut out baseball from the bullpen.
DII will travel to Rock Island to play a conference series against Augustana this weekend.
DI will be in action against UW-EC on Friday night at 7:00 PM at Ahuska Park. Saturday at Mansfield Park off of S. Gammon Rd, DI will host a doubleheader starting at 11:00 AM.
Having a significant amount of fans at our Fall Tournament as well as the DII series last weekend is something that we truly appreciated. The more the merrier.
Our goal in the Fall and Spring is to average at least 32 fans per game. Something that may seem small, but for a Club organization it’s worth paying attention to.
