Aces held scoreless against Austin
Red Wing failed to rack up an extra base hit Tuesday night at home against the Austin Redlegs, a new Class A team consisting of players throughout southern Minnesota. The Aces fell 4-0.
Pat Windish turned in an impressive start for Austin, going eight innings of four-hit ball. He struck out two and walked three.
"He was good," Aces player/manager Jimmy Bohmbach said. "He was throwing all of his pitches for the most part, and at any part of the at-bat."
Aces starter Josh Thygesen had an equally impressive start, but the Aces' bats couldn't help him out.
The lefty went eight innings, scattering six hits, striking out seven and only walking one.
"He pitched about as well as we could hope," Bohmbach said. "We just couldn't get any runs for him."
Recent Zumbrota-Mazeppa grad Josh Shirley played in the contest and went 0-for-3 for Austin.
Austin capitalized on a defensive mishap in the outfield in the third inning, which allowed them to score a pair of runs to take the early lead. The Redlegs added a run in the sixth and eighth innings as well.
Red Wing falls to 24-8 overall on the season and hosts the Cavaliers of Eau Claire tomorrow evening at 7:30 p.m.
