Pines? comeback kills THS

The Hatchet baseball season ended in Friday’s 4-3 regional loss to Northland Pines.
“Our kids played hard to the end and played good baseball the second half of the season,” THS coach Bill Turgeon said.
Tomahawk took a 3-2 lead in the 4th inning after a run-scoring double from Dylan Brietzke and RBI sac flies from Tyler Jones and Andy Firkus. The Eagles scored two in the top of the 7th on two walks and one hit to pull out the win.
Seth Wescott (1 K, 4 W, 4 R in 7 I) took the loss.

Tomahawk closed out the regular season with a wild 15-10 loss to Phillips. The Hatchets jumped out to a 4-0 start and still led 6-5 after the 3rd. But the Loggers scored trios of runs in the next 3 innings, and 1 in the 7th for a 15-7 lead.
“We played good defense and typically when you score 10 runs you should win,” Turgeon said. “But Phillips came out swinging and hit us well.”
Firkus (9 H, 1 W, 1 K, 7 R in 3-1/3I) took the loss, and K. Schmid (6 H, 2 W, 7 R in 2-2/3 I) and D. Brietzke (2 H, 1 K, 1 R in 1 I) relieved. Josh DeNamur (4-5, 2 SB), Wescott (2-5, 2B), Clay Borchardt (2-5) and Jones (2B) paced the hitting.
Tossing the Midgets
The Hatchets roughed up Hurley 11-1 last Tuesday behind Jones’ no-hit pitching performance.
“The six-hit, six-run first inning proved to be our best inning of the year,” Turgeon said.
Tomahawk tallied a 6-run 1st inning and added 5 in the 4th of the 5-inning contest. Kory Brietzke (2-3), Borchardt (2-3) and Firkus (1-3, 3 RBI) helped THS reach 8 hits.
Jones (0 H, 3 W, 4 K, 2 HBP in 5 I) pitched a gem.
