Rice Lake baseball vs. Eau Claire North 4-29-21

Rice Lake first basemen Joe Kroeger takes a grounder during the second game of a doubleheader against Eau Claire North on April 29.

A seventh inning rally fell short for the Rice Lake baseball team in a 5-4 loss to Eau Claire North as the Huskies completed the doubleheader sweep on Thursday in the season opener for both teams.

Rice Lake (0-1, 0-1) entered the final frame down by four, but got the tying run at second base with one out, before a flyout and strikeout ended the game. Zach Fisher had started the inning with a walk but was eliminated on a fielder's choice groundout off the bat of Alex Belongia. Belongia moved to second on an error by the Eau Claire North shortstop following a ground ball by Joe Kroeger.
