Ripon used an offensive punch to take an early lead and never looked back as it took down Waupun 3-0 Tuesday.
Jess Ehrenberg sent a two-run home run over the center-field fence in the first inning and Curtis Morgan drove in Matt Reilly in the second inning for the final run of the game.
From there, Ripon hung on against a good opponent in Waupun, thanks to a dominating performance by pitcher Jordan Jess.
The win was Ripon’s fourth consecutive and moved them up to 4-2 and into first place in the division.
Jess went all seven innings, giving up only two hits while walking three, and striking out 10 batters.
A college scout was on hand to see Jess pitch, but according to assistant coach Howard Hansen, it didn’t affect his game.
