did more than enough to protect their home field, finishing the weekend
with an undefeated record.
Sheboygan knocked off the Oshkosh
Giants 6-2 Friday night and Saturday night they took down perennial
powerhouse Lombard by a score of 6-5. On Sunday, the A’s completed the
Wisconsin State League Challenge sweep by besting Addison 4-3 Sunday
afternoon and Kenosha in the nightcap by a score of 7-1.
In game one, timely hitting and quality pitching gave the A’s a 4-2 victory over Addison.
The A’s got on the board early when Ben Gordon knocked a big, two-out RBI single, scoring Wyatt Olson and Nate Heili.
Addison tied the game at two, the A’s took back their lead in the
fourth inning when Cole Miklavcic ripped an RBI single, scoring Taylor
Grimm and advancing Adam Ryan to third base. Ryan later scored on a
balk, bringing the score to 4-2.
The Braves managed to get one back in the top of the seventh, but their rally fizzled out and the A’s won by a score of 4-3.
Andrew Wood picked up the win pitching the final three innings in relief for Max Kramsky who started the game.
two saw a stellar pitching performance by Weston Nelson as he went the
distance allowing one run on six hits, picking up the win.
ground-outs by Blake Fleischman and Wyatt Olson in the first inning gave
the A’s a 2-0 lead, which proved to be enough. The A’s did tack on a
few insurance runs later in the game en route to the 7-1 victory.
