A busy day in the WSL saw a new team jump to the top of the WSL standings.
Burlington Barons 4, Greater Green Bay Blue Ribbons 1
Burlington Barons 9, Greater Green Bay Blue Ribbons 3
The Greater Green Bay Blue Ribbons were unable to earn a victory in either of the two back-to-back games they played against the Burlington Barons with final scores of 4-1 and 9-3. In game one, Burlington scored in the first inning on a double hit by Ben Siekierski and a single by Ben LaRonge which gave them a lead they never lost. Green Bay didn’t score their only run for the afternoon until the sixth inning when Jake Berg hit a RBI double that scored Sam Kohnle. Similar to the first game, Burlington scored immediately in the first inning of the second game, putting four runs on the board which allowed them to maintain their lead throughout the game. Green Bay’s inability to stop the Baron’s offense ultimately led to their third consecutive loss to Burlington.
Lombard Orioles 10, West Allis Nationals 3
West Allis Nationals 8, Lombard Orioles 3
A split doubleheader between the Lombard Orioles and West Allis Nationals resulted in final scores of 10-3 Lombard, and 8-3 West Allis. All three of West Allis’ runs in game one were scored in the third inning. Lombard pulled ahead for good in the fourth inning when Jackson Gray hit a 2-run home run, and Jacob Campbell and Andy Nelson both hit RBI singles. In game two the Nationals came back with an urgency to put runs on the board, Griffin Doershing homered in the first inning and all eight of the teams’ runs were scored in the first, second and third innings. Robert Coe earned the win for West Allis Nationals, Antonio Valadez and Josiah Roundtree entered to help close out the game in relief. Drew Clavenna took the loss for the Lombard Orioles.
