The Duluth Huskies season-long three-game winning streak was snapped Tuesday via a 13-2 loss to the Mankato Moondogs in Northwoods League play in Mankato.
Down 10-1 in the fifth, the Huskies turned to first baseman Blayne Robinson to pitch them out of an inning in which Duluth would surrender seven runs total when all was said and done. Robinson walked the first batter he faced to push the score to 11-1 in Mankato's favor, but got the Moon Dogs to hit into a double play to end the inning.
Robinson pitched a scoreless sixth inning before being relieved, giving up just one hit against six batters over one and two-thirds innings.
Catchers Ryan McDonald and Peyton Powell pitched the seventh and eighth innings for Duluth. McDonald gave up two more runs off three hits in the seventh and Powell pitched a scoreless eighth after giving up a hit and two walks.
The Huskies only surrendered nine hits total Tuesday, but walked 13 total Moon Dogs in eight innings.
Duluth is back home at Wade Stadium on Wednesday to host the Eau Claire Express in a doubleheader. Game 1 is scheduled for 12:05 p.m. with Game 2 set to begin at 6:35 p.m.
