Neither team had control of the strike zone Tuesday as the Lake City baseball team lost 13-10 to Stewartville in Lake City.
The Tigers’ pitching staff walked 12 batters in the game and Stewartville issued nine free passes. Lake City (1-1) also committed four errors.
“Both sets of pitchers struggled at times with the strike zone,” Lake City head coach Perry Iberg said. “They gave up nine walks and that led to big innings. We had a couple errors that hurt us. They were bad ones, bad times of the game.”
Junior Jake Griebenow started on the mound for the Tigers and gave up three runs in 3 1/3 innings. Junior Ben Schramski led Lake City at the plate, going 2-for-4 with two RBI while Nick Oeltjen was 1-for-1 with one RBI and walked three times.
Sam Quackenbush got the win for Stewartville, pitching five innings and giving up five runs while striking out three and walking five.
Shane Mlenar went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI, Robby Campbell was 2-for-3 with two RBI and Tanner Wieck batted 2-for-4 with two RBI and a triple in the win.
