Arcadia’s legion baseball team won both of its games last week to extend its winning streak to three games.

Arcadia Post 17 (3-2 this summer) took down Osseo last Tuesday before handling Whitehall at home last Thursday.

Post 17 was scheduled to host Tomah on Monday before visiting Sparta on Wednesday.

Arcadia built a five-run advantage in last Tuesday’s game at home, one that saw Post 17 register nine hits.

Max Blaschko and Connor Weltzien both registered two hits for Post 17, while teammate Prestin Scow earned the win on the mound.

Scow pitched all seven innings for Arcadia, striking out six Osseo batters and walking three others while allowing six hits and one earned run against.

Post 17 kept its bats alive during last Thursday’s Trempealeau County summer action in Whitehall — Arcadia collected 15 hits to push past the Norse.

Max Sobotta hit a triple to score Login Scow in the top of the third inning to start a run that would end with half of Arcadia’s runs in the game. Post 17 finished with five hits in the inning.

Arcadia doubled its lead with four more runs in the top of the sixth inning behind consecutive doubles from Sobotta and Prestin Scow.

Whitehall got its first score from Bryce Schorbahn on an RBI single from Broc Coburn in the sixth inning, and the home team closed the scoring with another run in the bottom of the seventh inning on Thursday.

Login Scow and Ryan Gardow were both perfect at the plate for Post 17, each batting 4-for-4 with three singles and a double.

Sobotta, Ben Lightfoot and Prestin Scow all finished with two hits. Weltzien had the final hit for Post 17.

Login Scow pitched a complete game for Arcadia, surrendering nine hits and a single earned run against while striking out six Whitehall batters and finishing with one walk.

Grayson Pronschinske hit 2-for-3 to lead Whitehall on a day the Norse ended with nine hits as a team and also pitched three innings for the hosts, finishing with one strikeout, seven hits allowed and four runs against.

William Youngbauer pitched four innings for Whitehall, striking out two Arcadia batters while walking one and giving up eight hits.
