After winning the first game against Crosby 14-10 the Walleye completed their sweep of the Comets taking the second game 11-1.
“The kids did a great job hitting throughout the double-header,” stated Spacher. “Doug Rolfson really battled pitching and we didn’t help him much defensively. It was nice to sweep but we know we have to do a much better job of fielding the ball as we get ready for a post-season run.”
