Robins softball squad bounces back, sweeps Lakeland 16-0, 4-1
space
The Antigo Red Robins softball team bounced back from Tuesday’s doubleheader sweep at the hands of Tomahawk, by trouncing the Lakeland Thunderbirds on the road Thursday by scores of 16-0 and 4-1.

GAME ONE

Game one saw the Robins jump up early, plating three runs in both the first and second innings, before adding another six in the third to put the game well out of reach.

Gotta give credit to our girls as they came out hitting right out of the gates, Head Coach Sandi Robrecht said. We jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.

Despite the massive scoring output, starting pitcher Kendall Smith would not need much support, tossing a complete game one-hitter, walking two and striking out six.

Kendall was dialed in, Robrecht noted.

Alicia Turunen started the bottom half of the first inning with a triple, and came home on an RBI single from Laynie Weix. Smith then proceeded to help her own cause, with a two run homer for the 3-0 advantage.

It was part of a big game for Smith, who finished three for four and drove in a total of four runs in addition to her pitching prowess.

The entire top of Antigo’s lineup came through, with Weix also adding three hits, while Turunen and Emily Brettingen had two each.

Our top four hitters lead us with 10 hits between them, Robrecht added. Weix, Turunen and Brettingen were all on fire.

After adding three runs in the second, the big third inning began with back-to-back walks to Allison Peters and Abby Robrecht. Taylor Arrowood reached on a fielder’s choice, setting up an RBI single from Meghan Bussiere.

Turunen followed with a two-run single for a 9-0 lead and after Weix singled to load the bases, Brettingen drove in a run when she was hit by a pitch for a 10 run Robins’ lead.

Antigo tacked on another two runs in the frame and added four in the fourth, while Smith continued to shut down the Lakeland bats on the mound, ending the contest courtesy of the mercy rule after five.

Emma Salquist took the loss on the mound for the Thunderbirds, while Tatum Morris recorded the team’s lone hit.

GAME TWO

The second contest was a much different affair in the runs department, but again Antigo received a solid pitching performance from its starter.

This time it was Brettingen, working six strong innings for the win. The Robins’ hurler allowed just one run on four hits and struck out four in the 4-1 victory.

As her counterpart did in the opening game, Brettingen also helped her own cause at the plate, coming through with a big two-run single in the fourth, pushing a one-run Antigo lead to three.

Emily came up big, Robrecht said. She located her pitches well and threw six strong innings.

Brettingen turned the ball over to Abby Robrecht in the seventh, who retired three of the four Lakeland batters she faced for the save.

Antigo’s remaining runs came via a Thunderbirds error in the second, which plated Peters, and an RBI single from Smith in the third.

Morris took the loss for Lakeland, with four different T-Bird batters recording hits.

The Robins pounded out 13 hits for the second straight game, with Weix leading with three. Turunen, Peters, and Arrowood recorded two each.

We just didn’t string the hits together as well as we did in the first game, Robrecht said.

Antigo is now 2-3 on the season, and 2-3 in the Great Northern Conference. The Robins will head to the MARC complex in Merrill for two games Saturday, taking on both Altoona and Merrill.
