The Riverdogs built a 7-1 lead after two innings, ignited by a five-run outburst in the bottom of the first. Austin Edge’s tworun double was the key hit in the first. Ryan Halverson’s two-out RBI double in the second gave HG a 7-1 lead.

HG raised its second-half league record to 2-1 (9-2 overall).

Noah Steines spearheaded the Riverdogs’ bats with three hits. Cole Reinemann, Ashton Holzman and Dylan Callahan added two hits each.

Brad Olson was the winning pitcher. Olson allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits with four walks and five strikeouts in four innings.

Isaac Dirker, who played for the HG High School baseball team this summer, pitched well in relief for the Riverdogs. Dirker threw three innings and gave up one unearned run on no hits with five strikeouts and one walk.

“Issac Dirker looked very sharp,” said Riverdog manager Mark Holzman. “He pitched three strong innings. His live arm will be very helpful the remainder of the season.”

Kyle Besul led Marytown in hits with four, including a double, and Chris Lefeber had three hits. Lefeber was the losing hurler.

The Riverdogs will play a pair of league games this weekend. On Saturday, HG will host St. Peter in a makeup game at 2 p.m. The Riverdogs will play at Mount Calvary Sunday at 12:30 p.m.
