Northwoods League baseball: Kreiling, Campbell help Huskies chop down Loggers
Duluth heads back home after snapping two-game losing streak.
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.
