The Huskies then went back to work in the second off Mustangs starter Jon Klein for two more runs. With one out, Jackson Wheeler hit a single and Michael Hemelt walked. Jonah Vujanic then singled to load the bases.

Christian Shertzer followed with an RBI single and Segreti knocked in the other run with a sacrifice fly to right.

The lead went to 4-0 in the fourth. Vujanic walked with two outs and stole second before a passed ball moved him to third. Vujanic then scored when Ethan Shertzer reached on an error.


The Huskies blew the game open with four runs in the fifth. A hit batter and two walks against CMW reliever Logan Dzwonchyzk led to the runs. Hemelt and Christian Shertzer both drove in runs after each were safe on infield errors.

The final Huskies run came across in the seventh. The Mustangs committed four errors in the inning with Zach Concini reaching on one of them and scoring the final run.

Klein highlighted the CMW efforts with three hits.

“Great team effort on the bases as well as defensively today,” Huskies manager Matt Roseland said.
