Brewers shut out Cardinals in 27-strikeout TEL game

NEW ULM — In a game in which 27 — or half of the 54 outs in the game — came by the strikeout, the New Ulm Brewers came away with a win.

Right-hander Wade French went six innings and struck out 10. He allowed six hits. Left-hander Ethan Stade fanned nine in three innings as the Brewers blanked the Fairfax Cardinals 5-0 Friday in a Tomahawk East League amateur baseball game at Johnson Park.

French got the win as he allowed six hits in his stint. He did not walk a batter.

Isaac Louwagie pitched a solid game for Fairfax. He went nine innings, struck out eight and scattered four hits as the Cardinals outhit New Ulm 6-4 in the game.

Both French and Louwagie kept the game scoreless until the bottom of the sixth when the Brewers, who play Sunday at Springfield at 3 p.m. plated two runs without the aid of a hit.

Louwagie hit both Cole Ranweiler and Trevor Nissen after there was one out. Both runners moved up on a double steal.

A French groundout scored Ranweiler before Nissen came home on a wild pitch.

The Brewers added three insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth.

Louwagie walked Andrew Peters and Ranweiler to start the inning. An infield error on a Nissen ground ball scored Peters.

A double play scored Ranweiler before a single from Lucas Suess, a walk to Ayden Jensen and a Parker Neubauer RBI single made it 5-0.

Fairfax is at Hanska at 1 p.m. Sunday.
