Hanson, appearing in his first game since the Bells last faced the Merchants on June 11, pitched five innings and struck out two before being put in line for the win on a Tanner Leighton single that drove in Danny Hennigs for the game’s first run in the home half of the fifth.
Ludtke earned the save after pitching four hitless innings, but struggled with his command and walked four batters, including three in the ninth. In all, the Bells walked seven in the 3-0 victory.
“It was nice to see our guys bounce back after two tough losses,” said Bells head coach Brandon Newell. “
