BIRD ISLAND — Seven different players collect a hit for Bird Island and Bullfrogs starter Jake Marcus threw seven solid innings to help the home team double up the Hutchinson Huskies 4-2 in a non-league game Friday.
Marcus earned the win after Tyler Hebrink drove in Dylan Gass and Shawn Dollerschell with a bloop hit in the seventh inning. Gass and Dollerschell both drew a walk in the frame to reach base.
Marcus held the Huskies to six hits and two runs in his performance on the mound. Brad Gass then threw a scoreless eighth and ninth, striking out three along the way, to earn a save.
