Wausau Pilot & Review
WAUSAU – Nate Langbehn took a no-hitter into the seventh inning before allowing a leadoff single, but did enough as the D.C. Everest baseball team rolled to a 9-1 win over Wausau East on Tuesday at East High School.
The game was the Wisconsin Valley Conference opener for both teams.
Langbehn struck out 13 in 6 1/3 innings with just one walk and was removed after allowing the single and he hit Eli Pagel with a pitch with one out in the seventh. Wyatt Miles came in to finish off the win as East plated its only run on a groundout.
Everest (2-0) struck quickly with four runs in the top of the first inning with Brock Babiash knocking in a run with a single, and three more scoring on two wild pitches and a hit batter with the bases loaded.
Chris Wiesman had an RBI double in the sixth for the Evergreens, who scored three more in the seventh on a sacrifice fly by Cotter and an error.
The two teams will meet again Thursday at Simon Field at D.C. Everest High School on Thursday at 4:30 p.m.
