Game recap:
Big-time hits, solid pitching and stellar infield play all contributed to Viroqua's 10-2 win over Wisconsin Dells, Friday night. 

Right off the bat, Viroqua picked up a pair of runs in the bottom of the first inning on a two-run home run by Dave Crandell to left field.

Through five innings, Viroqua held a 4-0 lead, which was helped in part with four double plays by Viroqua's infield. In the top of the sixth, Wisconsin Dells, with two outs, closed the gap to two, 4-2, but Mitch Stalsberg soon closed out the inning, coming in relief of starting pitcher Crandell and striking out the Dells' next at-bat for the third out.

In the bottom of the sixth, Viroqua shut the door on Wisconsin Dells' undefeated run in the 2013 State Legion Tournament with six runs, including a three-home run by Tyler Trautsch to right field and two unearned runs.

Crandell pitching almost six innings, picked up the win, striking out two and walking two.
