Pewaukee Muskies 4, West Allis Nationals 3

The Nationals dropped a tough contest last night to the Pewaukee Muskies by a score of 4-3.

West Allis did all of its offensive damage in the 2nd and 3rd innings, knocking the Muskies’ starting pitcher out of the game. Max Widmar had a plate appearance for the ages in the second inning, fouling off approximately 13 pitches before walking and later scoring on an Adam Karas groundout. Curt Pryal followed Widmar’s plate appearance with a single and later scored on a balk.

Matt Richer walked in the third inning, stole second, and later scored on an error by the Pewaukee catcher.

Nationals starting pitcher Cody Griebling threw seven strong innings, allowing only two runs (one earned) and striking out seven. His breaking ball fooled several Muskies during the contest. Two plays at the plate turned out to be the difference in the game.

The Muskies tallied a run in the sixth on a sac fly to center. Pewaukee scored the winning run in the 8th on a single to left field. Adam Karas made a great throw to the dish on the play, but the ball popped loose as the tag was applied.

The Nationals return to action on Wednesday night at Kuenn Field with a game against the Sussex Cardinals.
