Rain was a problem for Saturday’s Baraboo Baseball Day at Mary Roundtree Evans Field but the Baraboo Bandits did get in their Senior Legion game but it was Tomah that emerged with a 7-5 win. Baraboo took a 3-0 lead in the first inning with Clay Hinz and Matt Meyer with rbi singles and then with the score 3-2 in the fourth inning, Baraboo went up by three runs again with one of the runs scoring on a Griffin Nicksic rbi single with another scoring on a defensive miscue. Baraboo would not score the rest of the way however and Tomah rallied to tie in the fifth and they won in in the 10th to earn the come from behind win. Jameson Traxler threw all ten innings and took the loss for Baraboo, allowing 11 hits and Nicksic had two of Baraboo’s eight hits offensively. Baraboo gets a shutout win over Portage 5-0 on Friday night behind the three-hit shutout pitching of Clay Hinz who struck out ten in the process. Hinz also had two rbi’s and Griffin Nicksic had two hits so the Bandits are now 4-4 overall for the summer. Yesterday’s DH with Prairie Du Chien was postponed and will likely be re-scheduled and the Bandits now look to a Thursday night game at Wisconsin Dells.
