Two Waterloo pitchers — Adam Ketelsen and Jimmy Smiley — combined to limit the Duluth Huskies to four hits in a 7-3 Northwoods League victory for the Bucks in front of 457 fans at Wade Stadium on Tuesday night.
Ketelsen, the starter, worked five innings, allowing three runs — two earned — on four hits and two walks while fanning seven. Smiley then came on and tossed four hitless innings, walking one and striking out four.
The Huskies, who dropped their third straight, took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on RBI singles by Nic Kent and James Free, but the Bucks responded with a four-run second and only added to their cushion from there.
Mike Nyisztor had a pair of hits for Waterloo.
Duluth, which dropped below .500 at 7-8, hosts Waterloo in a doubleheader at noon and 6:35 p.m. today.
