Seiser’s arm, bat lift Trojans to win

CLARKSVILLE – Logan Seiser carried the Northeast Hamilton baseball team to an Iowa Star Conference win with his arm and his bat here last night.

The lanky right-handed senior pitcher went the distance, and at the plate delivered a key hit in the seventh inning and the Trojans went on to knock off Clarksville 4-2.

“I’m proud of Logan … he is being a true leader up there on the mound and the team is working great,” NEH head coach Chace Pruismann said. “The guys brought back Trojan baseball.”

Seiser yielded just four hits and struck out 11 Indians on 99 pitches.

NEH (3-3, 3-2 ISC), which jumped back over .500 in league play, led 2-1 after six innings. Seiser delivered his second base hit of the game that plated two insurance runs with two outs in the seventh.

Clarksville (1-5, 1-4 ISC) got one run back in the last half of the seventh, but Seiser quickly shut the door.

The Trojans also had four hits off Indian hurlers Zach Sommerfelt and Matt Negen. Tyler Smith laced a single and drove in one run and Kyle Pruismann added a base knock.

Hunter Dilley plated one run.

NEH will return to its home field in Blairsburg on Wednesday for a non-conference game against BCLUW at 5 p.m.
