LA CROSSE — Starter Harrison Kreiling overcame control issues to pitch 5 2/3 strong innings and Kristian Campbell provided more than enough offense to lead the Duluth Huskies to a 9-1 victory over the La Crosse Loggers before 1,774 fans at Copeland Park.

Kreiling, a 6-foot right-hander from Nebraska Omaha, allowed one run on five hits while using six strikeouts to help offset eight walks.

Campbell, a shortstop from Georgia Tech, sparked the offense with three hits, including a three-run home run, a double and four RBIs as Duluth snapped a two-game losing streak.

Second baseman Jonathan Vastine added a hit, two runs, three walks and an RBI for the Huskies (12-11) while first baseman Carson Hornung had a pair of hits to lead the Loggers (13-11).

Duluth returns home for a two-game set with the Waterloo Bucks starting at 6:35 p.m. Thursday at Wade Stadium. The games are part of a six-game homestand for the Huskies spanning eight days.

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.
