Game 1

Sean Gerber (Stoughton, WI/Stoughton) hit a pair of home runs and starting pitcher JP Feyereisen (River Falls, WI/River Falls) allowed just one run through seven innings for UWSP (30-8, 17-5 WIAC) in the 6-1 win.

The Eagles (16-19, 8-13 WIAC) posted one run in the bottom of the first, but Gerber pushed the Pointers' lead to 4-1 with a two-run home run in the third inning.

UWSP added a run in the seventh inning on an RBI single from Dan Douglas (East Troy, WI/East Troy), and one more run in the ninth inning when Douglas doubled to score Riley Spetz (Sevastopol, WI/Sevastopol).

Both Gerber and Douglas tallied three hits in the win.

The Pointers fended off a late surge by the Eagles and Ryan Schilter (West Bend, WI/West) collected three hits as UWSP held on for the 7-5 win.

The Pointers and Eagles each scored a run in the first inning, but Clint Rose (Watertown, WI/Watertown) hit an RBI double in the second inning and Coady and Bobby Gregorich (Plover, WI/SPASH) each collected an RBI in the third inning to give the Pointers a 4-1 lead.
