Marshfield 5, Wausau West 2

MARSHFIELD – Marshfield pitcher Caitlyn Kozik entered the game and was in a familar position. This time, however, she got out of the jam.

Last Wednesday, Wausau West hit a game-tying home run and defeated Marshfield in extra innings, but on Monday Kozik entered in a bases loaded one-out jam.

West trailed by four and Kozik induced a groundball that scored a run for the Warriors and a popout to end the game, as Marshfield held on for a 5-2 victory over Wausau West.

Jordan Green smacked a two-run double that gave Marshfield breathing room.

“We have been so close so many times this year, it was nice to come out ahead,” Tigers coach Mike Voss said. “We were up last week in the seventh against (West) last time and they got that big hit. It was nice to get out of a jam and come out on the right side of it this time.”

Records: W 4-5, 1-4 WVC.
