No early exit, Red Robin baseball team advances to sectional with decisive 13-3 win over Raiders
space
There will be no early exit for the Antigo Red Robins baseball team in the playoffs this season, as the top seeded Robins added a Division One regional championship to what is already an impressive campaign with a 13-3, five inning win over Pulaski Thursday at Kretz Park.

The win erased memories of last season’s disappointment, when a 22-2 Robins team fell to Mosinee 5-1 in another regional final.

The boys did a great job coming ready to play, Head Coach Scott Farmer said. Our pregame was the best it has looked all year and it carried out onto the field, everyone did a great job.

Trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the first, the Robins took control with a four-run frame. Matt Winter led off the inning with a walk, Wade Farmer and Brady Tatro both singled, loading the bases for Garret Held, who delivered a sacrifice fly to tie the game.

Two batters later, A.J. Kirsch step to the plate and delivered a three-run homer for a 4-1 advantage. It was a nice return for Kirsch, who had missed recent time with an injury.

We had a great start with Matt, Wade, and Brady getting us going by making them have to play D right away, Farmer noted. A.J. got back in the swing of things in a big way.

It was part of a three-for-four day by Kirsch, who drove in a total of five runs.

The Robins tacked on another run in the second, and again it was Winter getting things started, this time with a one-out single. Tatro delivered Winter, with a scorching triple to the gap.

Following a scoreless third, Pulaski added a run in the top of the fourth, coming via an RBI single from Connor Warden.

Antigo however, wasted no time putting the game out of reach with a seven run bottom half. A total of 12 Robins batters came to the plate, with run scoring hits coming from Held, Brady Renfro, Kirsch, Cody Urban, Sebastian Noskowiak, and Winter.

The score stood at 12-2 at that point. The Raiders put up a run in the top of the fifth, but Antigo ended the game on the 10-run rule in the bottom, as Kirsch singled home Held, who had reached with one out via double, in the 13-3 final.

The top four in the Robins’ lineup was impressive, with Winter, Farmer, Tatro, and Held going a combined eight-for-13 at the dish, with eight runs scored. It was part of a 16-hit output by the Antigo offense.

Noskowiak also ended the day three-for-three from the nine spot, including a second inning triple in which he was thrown out at the plate following an errant relay from the outfield.

Everyone had good looking at-bats, Farmer noted. Sebby got back on track as well, we will be tough to beat if we continue to get that production up and down the line up.

The Bradys combined on the mound, with Tatro getting the start and going four innings to earn the win. He allowed two runs on five hits, walked two and struck out seven.

Renfro gave up one run in the fifth, unearned on one hit.

No one had more than one hit for Pulaski, as the Fox River Classic Conference squad’s season came to an end. The Raiders saw extra base hits from Jesse Brockman, who doubled, and from Jake Neitzel, who drove in the fifth inning run with a triple.

Neitzel took the loss on the mound, giving up five runs on six hits in two innings of work.

Antigo improved its overall record to 24-3, and will advance to Tuesday’s sectional at Bay Port High School, where they will take on Wausau West from the Wisconsin Valley Conference. West, a four seed, advanced with a 4-1 win over DePere.

The Warriors finished tied as the runner up in the Wisconsin Valley Conference this past season, behind first place Stevens Point.

First pitch is scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday. The winner will advance to the sectional final at 4 p.m. against the winner of another Valley school, D.C. Everest, and Green Bay Preble.

Everest shocked Bay Port with a 13-1 upset Thursday, while Preble handled Green Bay Southwest 9-2.

It is going to be a fun couple of days getting ready for Tuesday, Farmer added.
