     -- Senior: Rhinelander II 5, Tomahawk Cardinals 3
It did not take long for the Northwoods Babe Ruth Senior League tournament to have its first upset.
Brevin Persike struck out nine batters in a complete-game effort as seventh-seeded Rhinelander II survived a late rally to knock off the second-seeded Tomahawk Cardinals 5-3 Saturday in the first quarterfinal at Stafford Field.

Rhinelander II jumped out to a 5-0 lead through 4 1/2 innings. Rhinelander scored three in the second thanks to a Travis Young RBI single and a two-run single by Alex Woynich. Brendon Mitchell walked, stole a base and scored in the fourth inning and Persike scored in the fifth off an RBI single by Cole Oettinger.

     The Cardinals made things interesting with two runs in a two-out rally in the fifth and another run in the sixth, but Persike got a strikeout to end the sixth with the tying run at second and struck out the side in order in the seventh to secure the victory.

Persike gave up one earned run in a six-hit effort and was 2-for-3 at the plate with a run scored. Oettinger, Young, Seth Hargraves, Alex McKnight and Woynich also had hits for Rhinelander II, which will the Tomahawk Hatchets in a semifinal Monday night in Tomahawk.

--Senior: Tomahawk Hatchets 14, Laser Pros 10
The Hatchets reached the semifinals with a 14-10 victory over Rhinelander-Laser Pros in the second quarterfinal Saturday at Stafford Field. Laser Pros led 10-9 in the sixth, but the Hatchets plated five runs that inning to rally for the win.

Brandon Reinthaler was hot at the plate, but labored through 5 1/3 innings on the mound, walking nine batters in the loss. He gave up the go-ahead double with one out in the fifth and was replaced on the mound by Bradley Comer, who surrendered a two-run homer and an RBI single to account for the final score.

Reinthaler had a five-RBI day at the plate. He hit a bases-clearing triple in the third inning and scored on the play thanks to an errant throw to third. He then added an RBI single in the fourth and an RBI single in the sixth, going 3-for-4 at the plate.

Laser Pros led 9-4 after the offensive outburst in the top of the fourth, but the Hatchets rallied for four runs in the bottom of the inning and tied the game with a single run in the fifth.

Laser Pros pounded out 11 hits in defeat. Matt Rudolph went 2-for-5 with a pair of runs. Nick Spencer had a double, Tate Spencer collected three hits and scored three runs. Comer was 1-for-4 with an RBI and Brock Brewer was 1-for-2 with a pair of runs.
Reinthaler struck out seven and allowed nine hits in the loss.

-- Senior: Rhinelander I 20, Nokomis 5
Rhinelander I easily defeated Nokomis in a quarterfinal held Saturday in Tomahawk. Details were not provided. Rhinelander I will face top-seeded Rhinelander III in the semifinals Monday night in Tomahawk.
