Memorial Blanks North 1-0 in Prep Baseball

The Eau Claire Memorial baseball team pushed across a run in the top of the first inning when the Old Abes Nolan Fadness scored on a wild pitch. Memorial made that one run hold up as the Abes topped intra-city rival Eau Claire North 1-zip at rainy Carson Park. The game was shortened to five innings because of heavy rain Monday night. Memorial pitcher Luke Merritt picked up the win, while North's Mitch Running was a tough luck loser despite holding the Abes hitless. Same two teams will play Tuesday night at Carson Park. Game time set for 6 pm.
