About this Article

Monday night's opener of the annual 3-game series between cross-town baseball rivals St. Charles East and St. Charles North featured a little bit of everything -- and a lot of good things for the Saints. Senior left-hander Nick Huskisson (2-1) limited the North Stars (11-10, 7-6) to just 1 base hit over 6 innings while racking up 8 strikeouts to help lead the Saints (13-7, 11-4) to a 7-0 Upstate Eight Conference River Division triumph at Fifth Third Ballpark in Geneva.
