  • ASHLAND — Steen Fredrickson tossed a four-hit complete game to lead Ashland to a 6-1 nonleague win over Phoenix on Saturday at North Mountain Park.
    The junior pitcher/infielder struck out three and walked two to improve to 1-1, deftly escaping his only jam thanks to a strikeout and a pair of groundouts in the top of the fourth inning.
    Eric Carlson was 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run, Bryce Rogan 2-for-4 with a run and Tommy Hulick delivered a two-run single in the first to give Ashland the early lead. Max Montgomery added a triple and Fredrickson a double for the Grizzlies (2-3).
    Max Potter was 2-for-3 with a double for the Pirates (3-5).
    Ashland scored all the runs it would need with two outs in the first when Hulick delivered a bases-loaded single to shallow right to bring home Rogan and Carlson. The Grizzlies padded their lead in the second when Montgomery's triple to deep center scored Aaron Scott from third and Montgomery came home on Carlson's infield single.
    Phoenix opened the fourth with a walk and a double by Potter to put runners on second and third with nobody out, but after finally getting on the board with Travis Stainbrook's RBI groundout the Pirates were held in check the rest of the way. Phoenix did not advance a baserunner beyond first base after the fourth, as Fredrickson buckled down and the Ashland defense turned two double plays.
