Hudson Raiders

Owen Anderson held fourth-ranked Eau Claire North to one unearned run over 5 ⅔-innings and Owen Weadge shut the door as the Hudson baseball team moved into sole possession of first place in the Big Rivers Conference with a 6-1 victory over the Huskies Tuesday night, June 8, at Grandview Park.

Anderson scattered four hits while striking out seven and walking three. Eau Claire North’s lone run came after a Raider error, a single and a sacrifice fly in the top of the fourth.

By that time the Raiders had built a 4-0 lead, boosted by a three-run home run by Sam Erickson during a four-run bottom of the second. Kyler Hove had an RBI single earlier in the inning. Hudson added two more runs in the fifth when Erickson scored on a sacrifice fly by Anderson and Gabe Walter scored on a wild pitch.

Erickson, Hove and Weadge all had two hits in the win while Weadge allowed just one hit and struck out one in the final inning-and-a-third on the mound.

Hudson is now 9-2 in BRC play (12-4 overall) while Eau Claire North is a game behind at 8-3 (17-4 overall). The two teams meet again in the regular season finale Thursday, JUne 10, at Carson Park in Eau Claire.
