Eagles’ bats silenced in 2 losses to HurleyThe Eagles wrap up their regular season at Washburn at 4 p.m. today.
The Hurley Midgets shut out the Solon Springs High School baseball team twice Friday at the SSHS baseball field. The Midget won the opener 2-0, then completed the sweep with a 3-0 win in game two. Both games were five innings.
Tyler Long suffered the loss in the opener, allowing three hits with 10 strikeouts. He didn’t walk a batter, and all three Hurley runs were unearned.
Hurley scored both of its runs in the top of the fifth inning.
Joe Androsky had the only hit for the Eagles.
In game two, Hurley scored all three of its runs in the third inning.
The Eagles were once again limited to one hit, a double by Logan Long.
Ryan Johnson took the loss, allowing four hits and three earned runs.
“We wasted a great start by Tyler in game one,” SSHS coach Nate Ahlberg said. “It’s tough to lose when your pitcher doesn’t give up an earned run, walks none and strikes out 10.
“We couldn’t get any quality at-bats in either game. Even with great pitching, you aren’t going to win many games in which you get only one hit.”
The Eagles wrap up their regular season at Washburn at 4 p.m. today.
Solon Springs is the No. 2 seed for the upcoming WIAA playoffs. The Eagles get a first-round bye and host the Mellen-Butternut winner on May 28.
