Wausau Pilot & Review

STEVENS POINT – Middleton scored nine times in the top of the fourth inning to erase Wausau’s early lead and cruised to a 17-6 win at the Firecracker Legion Baseball Tournament on Saturday at Bukolt Park.

Wausau led 3-1 after a two-run home run by Isaiah Piscitello in the second inning before Middleton was able to pull away.

After the nine-run fourth, Middleton added five runs in the fifth and two in the sixth to finish off the game due to the 10-run rule.

Bryce Heil had two hits and an RBI as well for the Bulldogs.

Wausau (12-8) will wrap up play at the three-day tournament on Sunday with games against Beaver Dam at 3 p.m. and Stevens Point at 5:30 p.m.
