Eau Claire North's Isaksson Tosses 1-Hitter Against Memorial


THE EAU CLAIRE NORTH BASEBALL TEAM SUFFERED A TOUGH LUCK 1-NOTHING DECISION TO INTRA-CITY RIVAL EAU CLAIRE MEMORIAL LAST NIGHT... A TOUGH LOSS FOR THE HUSKIES TO SWALLOW NOT ONLY BECAUSE THE GAME WAS SHORTENED TO FIVE INNINGS BECAUSE OF THE RAIN, BUT ALSO BECAUSE NORTH PITCHER MITCH RUNNING LOST DESPITE THROWING A NO-HITTER...
TONIGHT, GAME TWO OF THE SERIES BETWEEN THE ABES AND HUSKIES AT CARSON PARK...
TOP OF THE SECOND, NORTH ALREADY UP A RUN, MITCH RUNNING AT THE PLATE, POKES THE SINGLE TO RIGHT, THAT'LL SCORE MICKEY BOYLE, MICKEY GETS A 2.4 ON HIS SLIDE INTO HOME, BUT HE'S SAFE ANYWAY, 2-NOTHING HUSKIES...
ON THE MOUND FOR NORTH, THEIR SENIOR ACE, LEFTY PHIL ISAKSSON, RECORDS THE STRIKEOUT TO END THE THE BOTTOM OF THE FOURTH...
TOP OF THE FOURTH, THE HUSKIES ADD TO THEIR LEAD, RUNNER AT SECOND FOR BOYLE, HE RIPS THE DOUBLE DOWN THE LEFT-FIELD LINE, BRINGS HOME RYAN IVERSON, NORTH ON TOP BY THREE...
ISAKSSON WOULD TAKE A NO-HITTER INTO THE 6TH INNING, TWO OUTS FOR MEMORIAL'S BEST HITTER, NOLAN FADNESS, AND THE OLD ABE BREAKS UP THE NO-NO WITH THE SOLID SINGLE TO RIGHT...
BUT ISAKSSON WOULD GET PLENTY OF SUPPORT FROM HIS OFFENSE, LEADING 7-NOTHING IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 7TH, PHIL GETS HIS 10TH K OF THE GAME TO END IT, NORTH BLANKS MEMORIAL 7-ZIP...
THE HUSKIES HOLD THE OLD ABES TO JUST ONE HIT OVER TWO GAMES, AS MEMORIAL AND NORTH SPLIT THEIR TWO GAME SERIES...
