By Paul Lecker
The Marshfield Clinic Post 54 Senior American Legion baseball team split a pair of games this week.
The Blue Devils lost to Plover 5-2 at home on Tuesday and then came back to grab a 13-3 victory of Rothschild-Schofield-Weston on Wednesday at D.C. Everest High School.
Plover scored three runs in the third inning and added another in the fourth to pull out to a 4-0 lead against Marshfield starter Sam Neville.
The Blue Devils would not score until the ninth when they plated a pair of runs on a double by Mitch Susa but could not get any closer.
Plover pounded out 14 hits in the win and rode the arm of Cal Geise, who struck out seven in eight shutout innings.
On Wednesday Bobby Pilz earned the win on the mound for Marshfield.
Shane Coker, Nolan Matson, and Susa each had two hits in the win.
Marshfield was 11-3 overall and 7-2 in the Wisconsin Valley Legion League prior to a non-league doubleheader at home Thursday against Antigo.
