Jankowski, solid "D,'' lead Typhoon to 2-1 win at state
space
The Antigo Legion Post Number Three baseball team opened up the 2017 Class AA State Tournament on Wednesday in Merrill, and used a solid pitching performance from Jesse Jankowski and error free defense to defeat the Kaukauna Angels 2-1.

It was a bit of an uncharacteristic performance from a Typhoon team that had been out slugging the competition lately, while rarely playing errorless in the field.

Antigo opened the game by threatening in the top half of the first inning, as Jake Husnick reached on a one out single. Garrett Held would single with two outs, but both runners were left stranded.

Brad Meyer led off the bottom of the first with a single for Kaukauna, and consecutive walks by Brad Vosters and Eli Verhagen would load the bases. Robert Benotch then blooped a single into leftfield to score Meyer and give the Angels a 1-0 advantage. Jankowski then beared down and escaped further damage with a pair of strikeouts and an infield pop up.

The Antigo starter would be lights out after the shaky first, tossing a complete game, while allowing six hits, walking three and striking out two.

The Typhoon went three up, three down in the second and third, before Hunter Kirsch led off the fourth with a basehit. Kaukauna starter Jordan Skenddove was able to turn away the Antigo line up however, with a pair of strikeouts and an infield pop up.

The game turned in the top half of the fifth inning, when Collin Meinert singled up the middle, before being sacrificed to second on a bunt by Nick Marshall. Matt Winter would hit a two out single and advance to second as the Kaukauna throw to home prevented Meinert from scoring. With runners at second at third, a hard hit ground ball by Jake Husnick was bobbled by the Angels shortstop and the subsequent throw to first was not only late, but got past the first baseman. The error allowed Meinert and Winter to score and give Antigo the 2-1 lead.

Kaukauna would threaten in the bottom half of the seventh, putting runners at first and second with two outs, but Jankowski would get the job done, getting a ground out to end the contest and secure the victory.

Skenddove took the hard luck loss for Kaukauna, pitching 6 2/3 innings, and allowing two runs off seven hits and striking out eight.

Held led Antigo at the plate with two hits. Benotch and Payton Ebben had two hits each for Kaukauna.

The win advances the Antigo Legion team in the winners bracket of the double elimination tournament to face Kewaunee County today at 4 p.m. Kewaunee County advanced with a 5-1 win against Waterford. Other scores from day one included River Falls defeating Beaver Dam on a walk off home run in extra innings 4-3, and Holmen edging Merrill 4-3.

Antigo is now 16-10 overall on the year, while Kewaunee County holds a 19-1 mark. Other games today include Kaukauna vs. Waterford at 10 a.m., Beaver Dam and Merrill at 1 p.m., and River Falls against Holmen at 7 p.m.

The tournament runs through Sunday and all games are being played at Merrill’s Athletic Park.
