Legion Baseball Roundup: BOLD clubs Litchfield
BIRD ISLAND — Tyler Seehusen slugged a three-run homer, Joel Erickson knocked in three runs without registering an official at-bat and Logan Sandgren and Tyler Rock combined to toss a one-hitter Monday, aiding BOLD’s 11-1 win in five innings over Litchfield in an American Legion baseball game.
The top-ranked Mudhens (2-0) bolted out to a 3-0 lead after the first inning and scored five more times in the second and another three times in the third. Sandgren was the beneficiary of the outburst as the left-hander worked the first four innings to collect the win, striking out six and giving up just one hit, a single to Cody Klabunde in the first.
Rock then struck out the side in the fifth.
Erickson was hit by a pitch three times and all three times the bases were loaded, allowing Erickson to credit for three RBI.
Seehusen’s homer highlighted the five-run, 10 at-bat second and Sandgren drove in two runs with a first-inning single and a groundout in the third. Riley Kramer also singled in a run in the first.
Klabunde also produced Litchfield’s lone run with a sac bunt in the third.
