A pair of two-run innings, the second coming in the bottom of the sixth, lifted Chippewa Falls to a 4-1 win over Rice Lake in Big Rivers baseball Tuesday in Chippewa Falls.
Rice Lake's only run came in the fourth inning when Turner Swanson reached on an error, stole second and rode home on Parker Buckley's RBI single, drawing the Warriors to within 2-1.
The score stayed at 2-1 until the bottom of the sixth when Chippewa Falls pushed across two more runs on a walk and two hits.
The Warriors went down in order in the top of the seventh against winning pitcher Justin Ignarski, who went the distance.
Ignarski threw a two-hitter and walked only one as the Warriors stranded three runners. Ignarski struck out 11.
Hunter Ashlin took the pitching loss, going the first two innings and giving up two runs in the second on two hits and two walks.
Michael Lindau worked the final four innings, allowing two runs on four hits.
Besides Buckley's RBI single, Rice Lake's other hit came in the third inning, a single by Austin Piecuch.
The loss dropped Rice Lake to 1-4 in the Big Rivers and 2-5 overall. Chippewa Falls is 2-1 in the conference and 6-4 overall.
The Warriors picked up a nonconference win Monday at home, 7-5 over Amery.
Alex Kempf got the pitching win, getting within one out of a complete game. Amery scored two in the seventh off of Kempf and had a runner on when Lucas Robarge came on in relief.
Robarge walked the first batter he faced to put the tying run on first but then got the game-ending out on an infield pop-up.
The Warriors got production from throughout the lineup in picking up seven runs on seven hits and receiving seven walks.
Ashlin put the Warriors on the scoreboard in the first inning with an RBI single, and Noah Pierce delivered a run-scoring double in the third inning after Amery had taken a 3-1 lead.
Rice Lake tied the game at 3-3 in the fourth when Logan Hile singled and scored after two walks and an error.
The Warriors regained the lead with two runs in the fifth and added two more runs in the sixth.
Ashlin doubled to lead off the fifth, and after a walk, scored on a ground-out. Buckley then scored on Cole Paulson's bunt.
Singles by Michael Lindau and Swanson fueled the two-run sixth.
Kempf was charged with five runs on six hits in getting the pitching victory. He struck out nine and walked one.
The Warriors dropped a Big Rivers game to visiting Eau Claire Memorial on Friday, 9-0.
Memorial's fast-balling Dalton Roach shut down the Warriors on three hits while striking out 13 and walking only one.
The Warriors had several chances to break up the shutout but couldn't get a key two-out hit while stranding five runners.
Mitchell Kleusch led off the game with a line drive single off Roach's leg but didn't get beyond first base.
Swanson doubled with one out in the fourth but advanced only to third base.
Pierce slammed a double to lead off the fifth but was stranded at second base as Roach got a pop-up to his catcher and then struck out two batters.
The Warriors used three pitchers, with starter Buckley going the first five innings and allowing four runs. Lindau and Hile each worked an inning in relief.
Designated hitter Travis Berg led the Memorial offense with a solo home run, two-run double and sacrifice fly.
