Offensively, Throne backed his pitching performance by going 3-for-5 with a single, double and a triple and knocked in three runs.

Josh Zabel hit a three-run home run in the fifth, an inning where 13 Bulldogs players batted, and Drey LyBarger went 2-for-3 with a double and a triple. All together, Lake Mills had six extra base hits.

“It was good to see the guys hit the ball really well,” Blaser said. “Even the five singles we had were hard hit balls.”
