Tigers And Eagles Split Doubleheader Thursday
The Tech Tigers split a doubleheader with the Apollo Eagles at Dick Putz Field Thursday night. The game two win by the Eagles snapped a five-game losing streak for Apollo against Tech.
Andrew Nefs pitched six strong innings for the Tigers to earn the win on the mound, and Tech's two-run first inning proved to be all the offense needed in a 2-1 win. Austin Nikolas drove home Tommy Friesen with a triple, and Drew Bulson's sharp single through the right side scored Nikolas to give the Tigers a 2-0 lead.
Apollo scraped home a run in the bottom of the sixth inning on a Tiger throwing error, but ultimately stranded ten runners on base in the loss.
The Eagles took game two by a 5-0 final score behind a strong pitching performance from Isaac Benesh. The junior picked up his first varsity win with 6.2 shutout innings, in which he struck out ten Tigers.
