Sheboygan A’s 5, 3, Lombard Orioles 4, 9
The Lombard Orioles, a perfect 16-0 so far heading into their weekend series with the Sheboygan A’s, suffered their first loss after an extra-innings walk-off single by the A’s Ross Krist in the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday. The Orioles jumped out to an early 3-0 lead after the first on a Jake Novak home run. The A’s would score two in the third and two in the fifth to take the lead 4-3 before the Orioles tied it back up in the top of the seventh. Both teams had chances in extras, but after TJ Roberts reached third, Krist played the role of hero. In game two, the Orioles would once again jump out to an early 3-0 lead, but they would add to it to take a 7-0 lead. The A’s started to mount a slight comeback, scoring three in the sixth before Lombard shut the door and added two more for insurance.

Led by three hits apiece from Alex Elliott, Noah Armstrong and Dalton Madsen, the Nationals scored in every inning but the first in a 17-hit, game one victory.
