The loss dropped the Wildcats into a tie for first place with Mount Calvary in the second half season of league play at 6-1. The Riverdogs are in third at 5-2 and improved their overall record to 12-3.

Callahan’s homer in the bottom of the first inning gave HG a 3-1 lead going into the second. He finished the game with a team-high three hits and four RBIs.

Olson pitched seven innings and allowed one earned run on six hits as he posted the victory. He struck out nine and walked only two. John VanderPloeg pitched the final two frames for the Riverdogs and allowed zero runs.

The Riverdogs banged out 14 hits. Austin Edge, Cole Reinemann and Ryan Halverson contributed two hits each.

“This was a great win for us,” said Riverdog player manager Mark Holzman. “We received an excellent pitching performance from Olson and played errorless baseball.

“Zach Fritz, Andrew Reinemann, and Ashton Holzman all had outstanding defensive plays. Dylan’s three-run home run in the first was huge and the team’s ability to tack on runs all game took the wind out of Cleveland.”
