Eagles Sweep Baseball Doubleheader at Algoma

Southern Door’s baseball team remained undefeated at the top of the Packerland Conference standings after sweeping a league doubleheader Saturday at Algoma.

The Eagles defeated the Wolves in game one, 4-2.

Southern Door plated a run in the top of the first, before Algoma scored two runs on three hits in the bottom of the inning to pull in front.

The Eagles regained the lead with two runs in the top of the second powered by an RBI double by Jack Peterson and an RBI single by Tyler Neinas.

Southern Door manufactured its final run in the top of the sixth with singles from Matthew Malvitz, Neinas and Jaden Diller. 

Eagle players recording two hits each included Peterson, Neinas, Diller and Jared Hawkey. 

Diller earned the win on the mound, striking out 11 and walking two in his six innings of work. Neinas earned a save by retiring all three Algoma batters in the seventh inning after throwing five pitches.

The Wolves had only had one baserunner after the first inning, with that runner being put out on a sixth-inning double play.

Eagles 10, Wolves 0

Southern Door won the second game over Algoma in six innings, 10-0.

The Eagles scored three runs in the bottom of the third with hits from Hawkey, Peterson and Neinas.

Southern Door extended its lead to 5-0 in the fifth inning with hits from Diller, Christian Counard and Malvitz.

The Eagles’ five-run rally in the sixth inning included an Alec Guilette single and a Braylon Berg double to end the game via the 10-run rule.

Southern Door, which improved to 5-0 overall and 4-0 in league play, had its non-conference game scheduled for Monday afternoon at  Manitowoc Lutheran postponed.
