Orioles, Barons Post Wednesday Night Victories
August 13, 2020
The league's leaders won their final WSL game of the season Wednesday, while the Barons victory puts them in a tie for second place.
Lombard Orioles 13, Addison Braves 9
In a close Wednesday night ballgame, the Lombard Orioles came out with a 13-9 victory over the Addison Braves. Heading into the fifth inning, the Orioles had already scored 10 runs in contrast to Addison’s two runs, but the Braves quickly answered back. They scored seven runs in the fifth inning with the help of hits from Chris Karasinski, Cy Kerber, Ryan Lidge, Rayth Petersen, Chris Wido, and a handful of walks that put the Braves one run behind Lombard. Addison went scoreless for the remainder of the game, and Lombard went on to score three more runs- doubles from Tom Norton and Mike Courtney were effective in adding runs and pulling away from Addison. Despite the Braves racking up 11 hits in the game, just one hit less than the Orioles produced, they ultimately took the loss but competed well with the WSL’s top-ranked team.
Stats: Lombard vs. Addison
Burlington Barons 4, Kenosha Kings 3
The Kenosha Kings and Burlington Barons struggled to put up runs on the scoreboard early but eventually, the Barons drew a 4-3 win over the Kings. The game was tied at two entering the sixth inning when Burlington was able to pull away scoring two runs on an error. Ben LaRonge, Danny Peterson, and Brady Nowicki all had one hit to lead the Barons offense. Burlington picked up just three hits and although Kenosha racked up nine hits, they couldn’t come up with a win. Kenosha’s Zack Paczocha led the Kenosha Kings with two hits in five at bats.
