Koenig started on the hill for HG and took the loss. He gave up four runs (three earned) on six hits with three walks and zero strikeouts in 3-2/3 innings.

“Well, this one kind of slipped away from us. We hit the ball hard again but didn’t have much to show for it,” said Tiger head coach Mark Weber.

“Nic pitched well but ran into some tough luck in the third.”

The Huskies tallied two runs in the bottom of the third on Beirne’s two-out double.

“Olson hit well for them but we just ran into tough luck on our hard-hit balls. We are sitting at 9-8 on the season but feel we are better than our record indicates,” said Weber.
