DULUTH — Jaron DeBerry pitched six solid innings and the Duluth Huskies held on for a 4-3 rain-delayed Northwoods League victory Thursday night over the Waterloo Bucks before 1,245 at Wade Stadium.

DeBerry, a 6-foot-4 right-hander from Grayson College, scattered seven hits and allowed three runs, with six strikeouts to just one walk.

Kristian Campbell and Eduardo Rosario had two hits apiece as the Huskies (13-11) built a 4-2 lead after four innings.

The University of Hawaii’s Tai Walton had three hits to lead the Bucks (5-18), who came back with a run in the sixth but could get no closer as Duluth relievers Nolan Lebamoff and Jake Christianson pitched three scoreless innings to close it out, allowing only one hit while combining on six strikeouts as Huskies’ pitching had 12 Ks on the night.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
