Northwoods League: Huskies swept by Thunder Bay


The Duluth Huskies hurt their chances at making the Northwoods League playoffs with an administrative error last week.

The last-place Thunder Bay Border Cats further damaged those hopes with a weekend sweep.

The Border Cats broke a 2-all tie with a pair of unearned runs in the seventh inning Sunday to beat the Huskies 4-2 before 706 fans at Port Arthur Stadium.

Kyle Wellman scattered nine hits over seven innings to earn the win and reliever Peyton Burks recorded a six-out save.

Huskies starter Travis Booth and reliever Beau Wills combined to allow only five hits in the loss.


Justin Moore led Duluth with three hits, while Nico Lima added a pair.

The Northwoods League announced Saturday that Duluth had to forfeit five victories in the second half of the season due to a roster violation. Removing those wins dropped the Huskies from first place into third in the Great Plains East Division. They now trail Eau Claire — which lost to Willmar on Sunday — by a game-and-a-half with six games remaining.

The Huskies are at second-place La Crosse at 6:35 p.m. today.
