Duluth’s Alex Michaels led the way with two hits and four RBIs. Austin Christensen added three hits and drove in two runs, while three other Huskies had two hits. Duluth scored four runs in the fifth inning and then survived the Honkers’ four-run seventh.

Steve Villines pitched the final two innings, striking out three, to earn the save, and teammate Kevin Peters went six innings to pick up the win.

The teams meet again at 7:05 p.m. today in Rochester.
