The Milton Raptors used 16 hits and 14 walks to defeat host Helenville 22-1 in a Rock River League game Sunday afternoon.

Drew Freitag led the Raptors’ offensive charge. The leadoff hitter went4-for-6, including a two-run homer in the fourth inning, and finished with six RBI.

Josh Shere went 3-for-5 with three RBI, including a two-run triple. Jeff Jacobson went 3-for-4 with two RBI. Connor Schneider and Dan Haueter each added two hits.

T.J. Klawitter started and went three innings. Sam McCann pitched three innings, and Freitag finished with a inning of relief.

“We got really good pitching today,” Raptors coach Doug Welch said. “It was the first time pitching for some of those guys.”

The Raptors had last weekend off after an opening-week loss.

Milton plays at Lebanon at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Welch said the team expects to play all of its games on the road since Schilberg Park isn’t available until Rock County advances to Phase 3 of reopening from the coronavirus pandemic.
