Tough Day For The Lumberjacks

by Tom King

The East baseball dropped a double header on Saturday. Marshfield beat the Lumberjacks 3-2 and 15-7 at the Woodside Sports Complex at Mauston.

East was in position to win the first game after trailing a 2-1 lead in the 8th inning on an RBI double from Eric Daniel. But three errors on routine plays in the bottom of the 8th led to the loss.

The second game saw East take a 5-4 lead in the 2nd inning but couldnt hold it as Marshfield exploded for a combined 9 runs in the 4th & 5th innings to pull away. Daulton Varsho was 3-4 with a two run homer, a triple and 4 rbi's . Willy Brand had a pair of doubles for the Jacks

East is now 2-2 overall and 0-2 in the Valley and is scheduled to play Tomahawk on Monday and Wausau West on Tuesday weather permitting.
