WAUSAU – The Stratford baseball team used a three-run fifth inning to extend its lead, then held on to defeat Wausau East 6-4 in a nonconference game Monday at East High School.


The big inning helped the Tigers build a 6-1 lead before East responded with two runs in the fifth and another in the seventh before Dillon Kirsch was able to get out of the jam and save the win for Tigers’ teammate Brady Schmidt.


Schmidt struck out four and walked four in five innings, while Kirsch struck out three in the final two innings.
