Wolverines sting Hornets, advance to NUL championship

After suffering a scare in their first meeting, the Providence Wolverines took care of business on Monday in a 12-2 shellacking of Hyrum on the road to advance to the Northern Utah League championship series.

Providence pushed runs across in five of six innings, piling up 12 runs on 12 hits and benefiting from four Hyrum errors to get the win. 

Kolton Conquist went 2-for-4 at the plate and drove in three runs for the top-seeded Wolverines, and Brad Singer added three hits and an RBI.

The Hornets managed nine hits but were unable to bring runners home against the Wolverines pitching staff.

Providence will face the winner of Logan and Smithfield in the NUL championship series, which face off in a decisive game three of the other semi-final series on Tuesday.

The championship series begins Friday at Providence at 7:30 p.m.
