HURON — The Huron 14U Tiger baseball team played its final home games of the season on Tuesday, splitting a doubleheader against Mitchell at Klock Field.

In the first game, a back-and-forth affair saw the lead change eight times before the Tigers scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth to walk off with a 12-11 victory.

Nolan Stahly got the start for Huron, tossing five innings, allowing six runs on five hits and two walks, striking out 10. CJ Siedschlag pitched the final inning, allowing five unearned runs without allowing a hit, walking five and striking out two.

Gavin Waldner reached base four times with a double, single, and a pair of walks while stealing three bases. Chase Schuchhardt had two singles, a double, a walk, and stole two bases.

Stahly had a pair of singles and stole a base. Anderson Porisch, Teagen Lien, and Siedschlag also had a steal in the win.

Two big innings defined the nightcap, as Mitchell scored nine in the top of the second inning and Huron tallied seven runs in the bottom of the third. Mitchell was able to limit the Tigers’ attack outside of that one inning for a 10-7.

Schuchhardt opened the game on the mound, throwing 1 2/3 innings, allowing nine runs on two hits and three walks, striking out one. Zach Scheer finished the game with 3 1/3 innings, allowing one run on a hit and four walks, striking out four.

Jeremy Hofer had a triple, two singles, and two stolen bases. Porisch had a double and a pair of walks.

Siedschlag, Waldner, and Korbin Block each had a steal.

The Tigers will take a 24-9 record on the road to Rapid City for a pair of doubleheaders today and Saturday.
