Lombard Orioles 13, 18, Burlington Barons 8, 3
The undefeated league leaders scored 31 runs Saturday in their sweep of Burlington. Doubled by David Burch, Tom Moran, and Cliff Vickers, a triple by Bobby Gimes and a home run by Camden Janik paced the Orioles in game one, who have a +122 run differential in just 15 games so far this season. In game two, the Orioles used three different six-run innings to run away with the victory, including a multi-homer game from Matt Flaherty, home runs by Ryan Nagelbach and Jake Novak, and doubles from Novak, Mikey Kocen, and Adam Pottinger.
West Allis Nationals 20, 11, Greater Green Bay Blue Ribbons 0, 6
A whopping 16-run first inning started the day for the Nationals en route to their dominating game one victory. Aaron Goecks and Dalton Madsen each had a home run and a double to lead the Nationals offense. Brady Marget also chipped in two doubles and Gavin Bennett one. Game two was at least closer for the Blue Ribbons, who still ended up on the wrong side of the score sheet after surrendering three home runs to Kyle Bullock, Brian Huntzinger, and Jonah Meidl.
Sheboygan A’s 10, 18, Kenosha Kings 4, 3
Not to be outdone, the Sheboygan A’s put up 28 runs of their own to sweep the Kings and climb two spots into third in the standings. Brad Rindfleisch struck out 14 in a complete-game effort to go along with a home run from Ross Kirst, tripe by JT reed, and doubles by Jimmy Juergensen and Harry Steldt to lead the A’s in game one. In game two, an 11-run third inning was the dagger for the Kings. Juergensen hit three doubles for four on the day. Bennett Becker (2), Nick Hancock, Jacob Neese, Harry Steldt, and TJ Roberts each hit doubles with Roberts also belting a home run.
