Baraboo won their sixth game of the summer in Senior Legion baseball Thursday, knocking off Wisconsin Dells 5-0 at Mary Roundtree Evans Field.

Hinz ends up with a four-hitter with four waks and nine strike-outs in a 117-pitch complete game performance. Andrew Thompson’s two-run double was the key blow in a three-run third inning for the Bandits with Hinz and Jameson Traxler delivering rbi hits in the Baraboo fifth inning as well. Thompson had two hits on the evening with Hinz driving in two runs as well with Baraboo out-hitting Dells 8-4.
