A roundup of Wisconsin State League team's in action on Sunday.
The Sheboygan A’s won both games of a road doubleheader against the Genoa City Red Dogs on Sunday to push its winning streak to nine games, winning Game 1 6-5 in eight innings and winning Game 2 5-1.
Leading 5-1 at one point in Game 1, the A’s needed an extra inning to earn the win as Greg Rhude hit a leadoff double in the eighth and scored after a Trevor Theissen hit resulted in a throwing error which Rhude scored on.

Langley stayed hot offensively in Game 2 as he went 3-for-3 with a walk and four RBI while teammate Harry Steldt was 3-for-4.
