Coleman Takes Early M-O Lead

Slips Past Peshtigo 4-3

In Key League Clash




Defending two-time M-O Conference champion Coleman started out the 2013 season in style with a huge victory over Peshtigo Monday 4-3. The thrilling win lifts the Cougars to 2-0 in league play as Mother Nature continue to make playing baseball tough with one game played Thursday and two each Monday and Tuesday.

In their big win over Peshtigo, Coleman rode a strong pitching performance from senior righthanders Mason Mergener and Derek Marquardt as the duo combined for 11 strikeouts and allowed just one hit. Mergener worked the first 5 innings yielding 3 runs on one hit with 4 walks and 8 whiffs. Marquardt added 3 strikeouts over the final two frames to pick up the win.

“Our pitching was outstanding again with one hit and 11 strikeouts. Defensively our kids made the plays and we had some timely hits,”Coleman coach Kent Casper said. “What is amazing about the game, is our pitchers give up just one hit and we could have lost he game. That is how baseball is sometimes...you never know what is going to happen.”

Coleman will return to league play Thursday hosting Wausaukee before traveling to Gillett during a conference doubleheader day on Monday.

Coleman Clips

Peshtigo 4-3


In an early season battle of expected conference powers, Coleman pulled out a 4-3 win over host Peshtigo. The Cougars made the most of 4 hits, including a two-run single by winning pitcher Derek Marquardt in the third inning and a pair of safeties by Jackson Margis.

The Cougars broke a scoreless affair in the third, taking advantage of two Peshtigo fielding miscues to tally 3 runs. With one out, Nick Sailer got on via an error by third sacker Matt Borkovec then was joined by Trevor Seewald, who reached on a miscue by Trevor Bero. With runners on first and third, Seewald stole second base then raced home as Marquardt lined a two-run single to right center. Marquardt eventually came around on an infield single off the bat of Jackson Margis.

Starting pitcher Mason Mergener protected that lead until the fifth when Peshtigo scored 3 runs on just one hit. Despite striking, out, Derrik Maye got things started by reaching first base as the ball got away from Coleman catcher Alex Stodola. Marcus Sharkey followed with a walk while Borkovec singled to right. A pair of fielder choice groundouts by Brendon Thomas and Bero cut the deficit to 302. Borkovec eventually crossed the plate with the third run on a passed ball.

With the lead gone, Coleman put together its winning rally in the sixth. With one out, Stodola walked and moved to second base on a sac bunt by Mitch Woulf. A wild pitch moved Stodola to third where he scored on an infield single between short and third by number nine hitter Nick Sailer.

Reliever Marquardt took it from there and threw shutout ball over the final two frames, including fanning the side in the seventh.

Gillett Defeats

Lena-STAA 4-2


Derek Zahn put together a huge performance in leading Gillett past host Lena-STAA 402. All the talented Tiger did was scatter 5 hits over 7 innings with 9 strikeouts and two walks while adding a single and double at the plate.

Gillett took a 1-0 second inning lead when Korey Badeau walked and scored following a groundout and stolen base. The Titans tied the score in the bottom of the second inning as Justin Miller doubled and headed home on an error.

Gillett tacked on three more runs in the third on three hits...singles by Derek and Brian Zahn along with a double off the bat of Eric Fisher.

Losing pitcher Kiefer Powers doubled and scored on a single by Billy Howe in the third.

Powers gave up 4 runs on 6 hits with 3 walks and 4 strikeouts while also accounting for three of the Titans’ five hits.

-Tuesday’s Results-

Borkovec, Bulldogs

Blank Titans 13-Zip


Coming off a tough loss to Coleman Monday, the Bulldogs regrouped and hammered visiting Lena-STAA 13-0 Tuesday behind a nifty one-hitter by righthander Matt Borkovec. The senior mound ace lost his no-hit bid with two outs in the top of the 5th when Roby Paul punched out a base hit.

Borkovec registered 8 strikeouts and walked one during his 5-inning mound stint.

While Borkovec silenced the Titan bats, his mates made the most of 7 hits and 6 walks to win going away. Peshtigo jammed the plate for 6 runs in the second inning highlighted by two errors, a pair of balks, 3 walks and singles off the bats of DJ Messenger, Dakota Keller and Marcus Sharkey.

Five more Bulldogs crossed the plate in the third inning singles by Brendan Thomas and Borkovec while Jake Veness added a fourth inning base hit.

Schlies Allows No

Hits In 11-1 Victory

Making his second mound appearance of the young season, Wausaukee righthander Aaron Schlies fired a no-hitter to key an 11-1 win over visiting Gillett. The Ranger pitcher walked 4 and fanned 6 during his mound gem.

Wausaukee gave Schlies all the support he needed in the first frame with 5 runs on 5 hits off losing pitcher Matt Noffke. Eddie Self singled to start the game then watched as Beau DeLaet doubled while Dillon Meyers, Gabriel and Parr added hits.

Schlies singled and scored on a hit by Meyers in the second inning before the Rangers put the game away with 5 more runs in the fourth as DeLaet and Gabriel singled.

-Non League Results-

Pitching Shines In

3-2 Peshtigo Win

A trio of hurlers combined to twirl a nifty one-hitter as Peshtigo opened the baseball season with a narrow 3-2 win over visiting Stephenson. Peshtigo starter Zach Neumann worked 3 innings and walked two while Jordan Berth and Matt Borkovec added two innings of relief each. The mound men lost a no-hit gem with two outs and two strikes in the top of the 7th inning when Stephenson batter Alex Starzynski unloaded a two-run homer.

The Peshtigo pitchers combined for 7 strikeouts, 4 walks and gave up that one hit. Neumann fanned 4 and walked two, Berth and Borkovec one strikeout and one walk each.

“For the first game our pitching was really good...all three threw strikes and got ahead of the batters,” Bulldog coach Pat Robbins said. “Our sophomore catcher Marcus Sharkey put on a show defensively, throwing out two runners and coming up with a hit.”

While the Bulldog pitching dominated, the offense mustered up 6 hits off losing pitcher Matt Hanson. Darius Dohl and Dakota Keller ripped doubles while Brendon Thomas, Derek Koronkiewicz, Neumann and Sharkey lashed singles.

Trevor Bero hit into a fielder’s choice and later crossed the plate on a two-out single by Koronkiewicz with Peshtigo’s first run in the opening inning.

The Bulldog lead grew to 2-0 in the fifth as Sharkey singled to open the frame and moved around the bases on a wild pitch and steal.

In the sixth frame back-to-back doubles by Darius Dohl and Keller upped Peshtigo’s edge to 3-0, which proved to be the winning margin.

Stephenson finally got on the board in the top of the 7th as Trevor Christopherson walked and Starzynski drilled that two-run round tripper.

Coleman Clipped

By Oconto 11-4


The Cougars saw a 3-1 first inning lead melt into a 11-4 home loss to Oconto Saturday, ending their winning streak at 29 games. Four fielding errors by Coleman was turned into 7 unearned runs, including 4 in the fourth inning to put Oconto up for good 6-3.

Coleman leadoff hitter Trevor Seewald poked out 3 hits and scored twice, Mason Mergener added 2 hits and 2 RBIs while Blake Margis chipped in with two hits.

Frazer ripped a 2-2 pitch over the leftfield fence for a 1-0 Oconto lead in the first inning only to see Coleman push across 3 runs in their half of the frame. Seewald blasted a leadoff double while Derek Marquardt was hit by a pitch. Mergener followed with a bunt that Oconto hurler Tyler Trepanier threw down the left field line allowing two runs to score. The Margis boys, Jackson and Blake, followed with a groundout and single for a 3-1 spread.

Frazer walked, stole second and scored on a double by Mehlberg in the third before a costly error by freshman third sacker Blake Margis opened the floodgates for 4 runs in the fourth. Frazer lashed a two-run single in the frame and Kruger a RBI single.

Coleman’s final run came in the fourth as Seewald and Marquardt stroked singled while Mergener added a run scoring double.

Taking a 6-3 spread heading into the fifth, Trepanier ran into trouble when Blake Margis ripped a hot liner off his pitching hand to finish him for the game. No problem for Oconto as reliever Mehlberg whiffed 4 of the final 6 outs while walking a pair and giving up one hit.

Tanner Pillsbury singled in Gabe Hintz in the fifth, Mehlberg singled and scored on a groundout in the sixth before Oconto capped the win with 3 runs in the 7th. Hintz singled and Frazer walked before Mehlberg, Bostedt and Brandon Baehde added safeties.

Seewald started for Coleman allowing 6 runs on 5 hits before freshman Nick Sailer (2 innings) and Jackson Margis finished up.

Rangers Roughed Up

In Extra Innings 10-6

In a marathon contest that last over 3 hours, Wausaukee fell to visiting Crandon 10-6 in 9 innings. The Rangers took a 2-0 lead into the sixth when Crandon scored 4 times, then added two more tallies in 7th to force extra innings deadlocked at 4-all.

After a scoreless 8th, Crandon scored 6 runs in the top of the 9th only to see Wausaukee make things interesting with 2 runs in the bottom of the frame.

The Rangers totaled 8 hits off a pair of Crandon hurlers, including two safeties each by Beau DeLaet and Zach Struve. DeLaet, Struve and Russell Smith drove in a pair of runs each.

Wausaukee took a 2-0 third inning lead as Struve doubled, Smith got aboard on an error while Self and DeLaet followed with singles.

ranger starter Cole Lewandowski protected that margin with 5 innings of 3 hit ball, before giving way to Aaron Schlies in the sixth. Schlies had all kinds of problems, walking 4 and yielding 4 runs in the frame before DeLaet got the call for the next 3-1/3 innings allowing 6 runs before Brennan Gabriel registered the final out of the game.

Down 4-2 entering the 7th, Wausaukee sprung for 2 runs on 3 hits highlighted by run scoring singles off the bats of Smith and DeLaet.

In the 9th inning Struve sent two runs home with clutch two-out single.

The Crandon mound duo of Hayden Krueger and Kollin Champire gave up 6 runs on 9 hits.
