Pitching, hitting return to Packers in conference sweep
Fremont 10-17 Chippewa Hills 0-0
This time out Payton Mansfield didn’t toss a no hitter.
He yielded a lone single to the Warriors shutting them out for 6 innings and striking out 8.
And for good measure he came within a double of hitting for the cycle collecting a round tripper a triple and a single and knocking in 4 runs. Drew DeBlake rapped out a trio of singles, Brendan Maka doubled and singled and Logan Nelson crossed the plate 3 times courtesy of his teammates.
In the nightcap DeBlake tossed the teams second no-no in a week as he blanked CH over 4 innings whiffing 9 Warriors in the process.
The game was shortened due to the offensive barrage led by Mansfield who singled, doubled, tripled and collected 7 RBI’s as the Packers pushed their record to 16-2-1. Leadoff man Nelson once again scored three times
