HURON — The Huron Tigers junior varsity baseball season opened the season with a split doubleheader, winning the opener 8-2 and dropping the second game 7-0 to Sioux Falls Lincoln at Klock Field.

Gabe Waldner got the win on the mound, going six innings, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks, striking out seven. Nolan Stahly closed out the game by striking out the side in the final inning, allowing a hit and two walks.

Waldner had a double and a single as well as a steal. Parker Bischoff had a pair of singles and a steal.

Zack Scheer had a single, a walk, and a steal. Sean Janes walked twice. Stahly had a walk and was hit by a pitch.
