Eagle River 11, Dimond 3

It was singles night at Mulcahy Stadium for the Eagle River Wolves.

Eagle River banged out 13 singles and had five players with two hits as the Wolves built an early 7-0 cushion and cruised down the stretch.

Pitchers Liam Lierman and Jack Molloy combined to scatter four hits and two walks while striking out seven.

Eagle River (12-3, 5-1 CIC) had six consecutive singles in the second inning by Lierman, Josh Thompson, Dallin Roberts, Noah Lower, Alex Mullen and Karson Kolberg.

Lierman, a southpaw, struck out four of the first eight batters he faced. He finished with four innings and started a 2-6 double play to end the third inning after catching a pop up and firing to second base to double up the runner.

Dimond (4-10, 2-3 CIC) got a nice relief effort from Ryan Swanstrom, who allowed three runs in five innings, with two of them coming with two outs in the seventh.

Garrett Lick singled, scored and made a beautiful diving stop to rob Thompson in the sixth inning.

Joe Moriarty had an RBI and Peyton Montagna scored a run, stole a base and hit an opposite-field flyball all the way to the warning track in right field.
