WSU Goes 3-1 On The Weekend In Madison; Wins Both Augustana & Wisconsin Series
(4.19.15) - The weekend proved to be a successful showing for Winona St. as the boys claimed three much-needed victories in conference play. The Swamps started off on Saturday with the series finale make-up game with Augustana, and a solid defensive effort and one-hitter show by Ethan Simonson on the mound picked up the 3-1 win. Later that day, the boys kicked off action against the 1st-place Wisconsin Badgers. Logan Mertens had the stroke, going 3-4 with 4 RBIs on the board to carry WSU to an 8-4 victory. A couple defensive duels on Sunday were split between UW and WSU, but in the end the Swamps still took 2 of the 3 and earned the series win to move Winona State into the first place slot in the District VI West conference! Next, WSU hosts Northern Illinois at home, and if the Swamps can pull off the sweep they will be conference champions for the first time in program history!



 

WSU Splits Two Games With Conference Opponent Augustana
The Swamps traveled to Moline, IL on Saturday 3/28 to kick off conference play for the spring portion of the season. With mild weather and clear blue skies, WSU started hot behind the bat of Logan Mertens and a stunning effort on the mound by Matt Navis. Mert went 3-4 on the day with 3 two-baggers, while on the other side of the ball Navis shut down the Vikings with only three allowed hits, 1 earned run, 10 strikeouts and no walks leading Winona to a 14-4 mercy-rule victory. The fun didn't last in game 2 unfortunately as the Swamps couldn't get the bats hot early on and had to fight hard defensively to maintain a thin lead. A great 6-inning effort by Cody Kreiner on the bump wasn't enough as Augustana woke up the bats in the top of 7 to strike for 7 runs, leaving WSU in a hole going into the bottom of the inning that they just couldn't recover from, and the Swamps fell 9-8. Game 3 of the series was postponed due to rain and will be made up at a later date.
