PREP ROUNDUP: Burger saves own win for Hiawatha
Tyler Burger managed to pick up the win and the save in the Hiawatha baseball team’s 12-11 win against Earlville-Leland in the Class 1A Hinckley-Big Rock Regional quarterfinals on Monday.
Burger threw the first five innings, gave up two earned runs and struck out two for the Hawks (17-10). Then the Hiawatha bullpen gave up eight runs in the sixth, prompting Burger to go back to the mound in the seventh to save the game. Burger retired the final three batters on only seven pitches.
Hiawatha advanced to the regional semifinals at 4 p.m. Wednesday against Somonauk at Kenny Field in Big Rock.
