The Austin Packers baseball team was looking for win number two in a row Tuesday at Dick Seltz Field as they played host to the Northfield Raiders in a Big 9 Conference matchup, but it was the Raiders earning their third win a row after opening the season with a pair of losses by the score of 7-2.
The Packers were led offensively by Dakota Retterath, who was 1 for 3 with a RBI, Nic Robertson went 1 for 2 with a run knocked in, Bryce Fisher was 1 for 2 with a double and a run scored, and Isaac Stromlund and Kody Blom both went 1 for 3. Robertson was the first of four pitchers to appear in the game for Austin, and he was tagged with the loss in going 3 1/3 innings and giving up five runs, four earned on six hits, striking out one and walking three.
The Packers are now 2-3 overall and 1-3 in the Big 9 Conference. Austin returns to action on Thursday in Albert Lea versus the Tigers, and you’ll hear the game on AM 1480 KAUS, with the pre-game show getting underway at 4:45 p.m., and first pitch at 5:00 p.m. You can also listen online worldwide on our webpage at myaustinminnesota.com, and on the I Heart Radio and radio.com apps.
