A’s, Nationals Post Pair of Close Wins
June 9, 2021
A pair of close games with comebacks highlighted the Tuesday night schedule in the WSL. The West Allis Nationals remained undefeated while the Sheboygan A's jumped up in the standings.
Sheboygan A’s 5, Greater Green Bay Blue Ribbons 4
Despite seeing its four-run lead whittled down by the end, the Sheboygan A’s still held off Greater Green Bay for a 5-4 victory on Tuesday. Down 5-1, the Blue Ribbons scored three runs in the failed comeback attempt on a home run by Jayden Adrians and a single by Jacob Lacy in the eighth after being shut down most of the game by A’s started Jared Reklaitis. Reklaitis surrendered one run on three hits over seven innings, striking out 11. Ryan Fields then took the mound in the eighth for the A’s, walking the first batter, then getting the next two hitters out before giving up three consecutive hits to the Blue Ribbons, including the Adrians home run. Brad Rindfleisch came on in relief to get the four-out save.
West Allis Nationals 9, Kenosha Kings 7
The West Allis Nationals jumped out to a six-run lead, scoring runs in their first five innings on offense, then held on from a late Kenosha push to remain undefeated in WSL play this season. The final score Tuesday was 9-7, Nationals. Defensive miscues and walks hurt the Kings chances early, as the Kings defense was credited with five errors in the game. Kings starter Zack Paczocha struggled, giving up eight runs (six earned) with five walks and six hits surrendered. He took the loss. Tony Ortiz came on in relief of Paczocha and had better results with the Nationals lineup, give up only one base hit in his 3.2 innings of work. Nationals skipper Steve Elliott was busy with his lineup Tuesday, with 14 Nationals getting at-bats, collecting seven hits, three of which went for extra bases.
