Waupun Baseball Hammers Springs In Season Opener

The Waupun baseball team blew out St. Mary’s Springs 14-2 in their Badgerland Summer High School League opener on Wednesday night.  The Warriors scored a pair of runs in the 1st inning, then added five in the 4th, four in the 5th, and three more in the 6th.   Baron Buchholz went 2×2 with a double and two RBI while Noah Gerrtison also drove in a pair for Waupun.  Gerritson also struck out five, and gave up just one hit and one run in three innings of work to pick up the win in relief of Carson Bresser.  The game was moved to Gus Thompson Field in Waupun because of wet field conditions in Fond du Lac.  Waupun will host Fond du Lac on Monday night.
