Jake Brueggen pitches Marshfield baseball past Tomah
By Paul Lecker
MARSHFIELD — Jake Brueggen tossed six scoreless innings to lead the Marshfield baseball team to an 8-1 nonconference victory over Tomah on Friday at Jack Hackman Field.
Brueggen struck out three and walked one to earn the win for the Tigers (3-3).
Marshfield opened up a three-run lead in the second as Jeremy Brost doubled and scored on an error, and Matt Meyer delivered an RBI single.
The Tigers scored a run in the fourth and blew the game open with a four-run sixth.
Meyer finished with two hits and scored twice for Marshfield.
Brueggen, a sophomore left-hander, is now 2-0 and has allowed just one earned run in 12 innings.
“He has definitely moved himself up in the pitching rotation,” Marshfield coach Mark Zee said.
The Tigers play at Medford on Monday and host Stevens Point on Tuesday. Both games will be broadcast on WDLB-AM 1450 and wdlbwosq.com at 4:30 p.m.
