Tyler Bosma pitched five effective innings and Willmar's offense eventually came to life in an 8-5 Northwoods League victory over the Duluth Huskies in front of 863 fans Friday night at chilly Wade Stadium.
Bosma allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven to send the Huskies to their second consecutive defeat. Daniel Walsh was 2-for-3 with two RBIs, and his Stingers teammate, Sam Baier, had two hits, including a triple, and scored three runs. Willmar led 3-2 before plating three runs in the top of the sixth to pull away.
Nic Kent led the Huskies' attack by going 3-for-5. He drove in a pair of runs. Matt Hogan was 2-for-3 with a triple and scored three times.
The same two teams meet at 7:05 p.m. Saturday back at Wade.
