The Tomahawk Titans kicked off their 2015 season with an impressive 3-0 victory over the Wausau River Hawks on Sunday, May 17 at Tyler Kahle Memorial Field in Tomahawk.  Northwoods Community Realty sponsored the Titans in their return to Dairyland League play and the home team did not disappoint.  Jon Nyberg led the way for Tomahawk as he threw a complete game shutout, only giving up three hits while striking out nine and walking four.
Aaron Leonhard led off the bottom half of the first inning with a walk and advanced to second on a single by Fletcher Schoone.  A wild pitch advanced both runners and Lorne Ahrens followed with an RBI ground out to second to score the game’s first run.
The Titans scored again in the sixth inning when Ahrens singled with one out and proceeded to steal second base.  Nate Schoone followed with a towering double to left, driving in Ahrens and giving the home team a 2-0 lead.
Ahrens figured in the scoring once again in the bottom of the eighth inning.  After singling with one out, he stole second and then scored on consecutive wild pitches to make the score 3-0.
Meanwhile, Nyberg was dominant on the mound and the Titans were stellar defensively.  Although the game was played during intermittent showers, the home team did not commit any errors during the game and in fact, flashed the leather on several occasions.  John Aguirre opened the game with a diving catch in center field and later made another spectacular catch in shallow center field.  With Wausau mounting a scoring threat in the sixth inning, left fielder, Trevor Iwen, threw out a River Hawks runner who was trying to advance from first to third on a base hit down the left field line.  The play ended the inning and Wausau never advanced a runner past first base for the remainder of the game.
Offensively the Titans were led by Lorne Ahrens who was 2 for 4 with 2 runs, 2 stolen bases, and an RBI.  Nate Schoone had a double and an RBI, and Trevor Iwen also added a double.  John Aguirre and Fletcher Schoone also added hits for the Titans.
The Titans return to action on Friday with a 7:00pm game at DC Everest.  Their next home game will be Sunday, May 31 at 1:30 pm at Tyler Kahle Memorial Field.

On Wednesday nights from 7:00 to 9:00 pm there will be open gym at the Tomahawk School District Fieldhouse.
