BY KIP KOVAR Sports Editor COLOGNE – There was plenty of of- fense to go around in the matchup between the Watertown Red Devils and Cologne Hollanders. Both teams scored in bunches but in the end, a big hole for the Holland- ers was too much to overcome as the Red Devils held on late for a 19-10 victory over Cologne in an offensive showdown at Fritz Field. Tied at one after an inning of play, it looked as if the Red Devils were go- ing to pull away for good and get out early. Watertown scored 13 unanswered runs highlighted by home runs from Pat Tschi- da and Andrew Nichols. Down by 13 runs heading to the bottom of the sixth, Cologne didn’t roll over. The Hollanders struck for nine runs in the in- ning alone to close the gap to four. All of a sudden in a game, Watertown regained their footing after the furious rally by the Hollanders. The Red Devils scored two in the seventh and three more in the eighth to get their lead back to nine and put Cologne away for good this time. Watertown’s lineup was filled with big games offensively. Zach Iten went 4- for-6 with a double and three RBI. Mitch Kelzer and Matt Butler each had a three- hit game while Tschida went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI. Ben Smith, Ryan Hangartner, and Nichols also had multi-hit days for the Red Devils. On the mound, Holt Hunziker earned the win. He went five innings, allowing one run off of three hits while striking out nine. For Cologne, Joey Lilya led the offense with three hits. Tanner Luebke had two hits in the leadoff spot and scored a pair of runs while Cole Pengilly had two hits and two RBI. Carter Clemensen also drove in a pair of runs in the loss for the Hollanders.
