Fighting Fish, Eagles Out To Early Lead In 2019

The old baseball adage is "pitching and defense win games"-- somebody should amend that to read "high scoring offenses, pitching, and defense win games."  Both Josh Eidem and Tyler Hamann have undergone roster changes in the past two seasons, but neither manager seems under stress thus far en route to respective 3-0 records in St. Croix Valley league play.  The Fighting Fish, sporting a revised lineup including veterans Brian Giebel, Joel Schaffer, TJ Wink, Matt Doornink, Trevor Gutting, and manager Josh Eidem, helped themselves by acquiring MSU-Mankato outfielder Ty Denzer.  The Eagles, meanwhile, appear to have their 2018 roster back along with infielder Ben Otto to compliment a solid pitching staff...

River Falls defeated Bay City last Wednesday 5-0, Hudson 11-4 on Friday, and Plum City 10-0 on Saturday afternoon.  Menomonie defeated Ellsworth 7-4 on May 17th, while winning 12-7 last Friday night over Elmwood, and 5-2 over New Richmond earlier today...  The Fighting Fish play at New Richmond this Friday, followed by a Saturday game against the Elmwood Expos.  Menomonie runs into their toughest stretch of games starting next weekend, when they face the Ellsworth Hubbers on Saturday and the Prescott Pirates on Sunday before heading on the road to Spring Valley on June 13th and Prescott on June 15th.
