Legion baseball roundup: Madison bounces BOLD

MONTEVIDEO — Brandon Hill tossed a complete game and a four-run fourth inning for Madison was the difference in its 5-2 win over BOLD on Thursday in the Division II, District 7 elimination bracket.

Trailing 2-1 early, Madison rallied off BOLD starter Lane Stadther in the fourth, loading the bases on two hit batters and a walk.

Two walks and an error later, and Madison led 4-2. Ty Kanstrup, who had an RBI double in the second inning, then singled to drive in Madison’s final run.

BOLD had a chance for a comeback in the bottom of the seventh on an error and a Trent Athmann single with two outs, but Madison right-fielder Austin Domeier laid out for a diving catch on Trevor Nissen’s fly ball to end the game.

Madison will face the loser of the New London-Spicer-Osakis game 6:30 p.m. today at Montevideo.

BOLD finishes its season at 12-5.
