DULUTH — Starter Ryan Chmielewski turned in a quality start to lead the Duluth Huskies to a 4-0 victory over the La Crosse Loggers in Northwoods League baseball Wednesday night before 1,640 fans at Wade Stadium.

Chmielewski, 5-foot-11 left-hander from Southwest Minnesota State, allowed three hits in 4 1/3 innings, with six strikeouts to only one walk. Four Huskies’ relievers took it from there as Duluth pitchers only allowed seven hits, with 12 strikeouts to just one walk.

Duluth East product Joe Vos of the University of St. Thomas led the way offensively for the Huskies with three hits and an RBI. J.D. Rogers added three walks and a run, Devin Hurdle had two hits, two runs and a walk and Cam Frederick contributed a hit and two RBIs for the Huskies (14-17).

Dylan Lapic turned in a good start for the Loggers (14-17), allowing no earned runs in five innings, while Jordan Donahue and Alijah Acevedo chipped in two hits apiece.

The same teams rematch at 6:35 p.m. Thursday in the Huskies’ regular-season home finale before closing out the regular season with two games at the Willmar Stingers.


Duluth, the Great Plains East first-half champion, will then play second-half champion Eau Claire in the best-of-three opening round of the Northwoods League playoffs at 5:35 p.m. Sunday at Wade Stadium. Games 2 and 3, if necessary, will be in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

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.
