M-O Baseball Race Tightens Up

Things got a little tighter in the M-O Conference baseball race as only a half game separates the top three teams in the circuit. Despite being dealt their first conference loss, Wausaukee sits in the top spot at 7-1, while Coleman and Peshtigo are at 7-2 each.

The Rangers saw their unblemished mark take a hit Thursday afternoon as Coleman pulled out an 8-7 thriller. The final result was the same score in which the Rangers beat Coleman by just 6 days earlier and gets Coleman right back in the thick of the M-O race.

“Right now we are back in the race, but it is going to come down to what Peshtigo does with Wausaukee next week,” Coleman coach Kent Casper said.

The upsets didn’t end there. After slipping past Niagara 1-0 Thursday, Peshtigo was upended by Crivitz Tuesday 5-4.

The league crown will be up for grabs as the top three teams square off in key games. Peshtigo heads to Wausaukee Thursday then plays Coleman twice next week...May 19 on the Cougars home field and May 22 in Peshtigo.



-Thursday’s Results-

Coleman Slips Past

Wausaukee In Thriller


For the second straight week, the Coleman-Wausaukee final score was 8-7. But this time the Cougars prevailed behind a stellar relief performance from senior righthander Trevor Seewald, who was nicked for 3 runs on 6 hits over the final 6 innings.

Coleman jumped out to leads of 3-0 in the first frame, 3-2 heading into the second and extended the upper hand to 8-2. Unfortunately the Cougars couldn’t enjoy the lead very long as some shoddy fielding in the bottom of the second inning enabled Wausaukee to push across 4 runs and get within 8-6 to make things interesting down the stretch.

“Our defense let us down again, but this time we were able to hold on. Trevor Seewald threw well and was fantastic in relief. And what a finish it was,” coach Casper said. “It was just like last week when we had the tying run at third and winning run at second with our number three hitter Blake Margis at the plate. This time we were able to turn the tables and get the win.”

Trying to protect that lead in the bottom of the 7th inning, Seewald and his mates ran into a bit of trouble. Zach Orlando opened the frame with a single and Conner Kempinski drew a one out walk. After leadoff hitter Eddy Self went down on strikes for the second out, Brennen Gabriel lofted a pop up to second baseman Dexter Karban. Unfortunately Karban dropped the ball, which allowed Orlando to score to make it 8-7 and Kempinski to reach third. Up stepped Beau DeLaet and it looked like the Cougars were in trouble. No problem. After Gabriel stole second base on the first pitch, Seewald needed two more pitches, including a game-ending strike three curveball to seal the win.

The Cougars tallied 3 runs on 3 hits in the opening frame as Seewald doubled, Karban lashed a RBI single ad Gunner Patz a run scoring hit.

Wausaukee trimmed the deficit to 3-2 in its half of the first as Self and Gabriel singled, DeLaet walked and starting pitcher Aaron Schlies singled.

Schlies had all kinds of trouble finding the plate in the second frame, issuing consecutive one out free passes to Seewald, Karban, Blake and Jackson Margis. Nick Sailer followed with a two-run single, Alex Stodola RBI single and Patz a sac fly for an 8-2 spread.

Down but not out, Wausaukee answered with 4 runs on 3 hits for an 8-6 deficit. Orlando singled, Zach Zeutzius walked, Kempinski singled, Self lashed a two-run single while errors on shortstop Sailer sent three more runs home. Schlies added a base loaded walk to plate the final Ranger run.

With the starting pitchers for both teams yanked in the second inning, relievers Seewald and DeLaet gave up just one run the rest of the way.

“Both teams hit the ball well early.  After pitching changes from both teams, the hitting slowed to a halt.  Beau DeLaet pitched the last 5 innings and gave up one hit.  Wausaukee had some chances to put up runs but could not get the clutch hit,” Ranger coach Paul Moser said. “Coleman pitched very well in pressure situation.”

Berth, Bulldogs

Bop Badgers 1-0


In a game dominated by pitching, the Bulldogs relied on the right arm of senior Jordan Berth to claim a 1-0 win over host Niagara. Berth pretty much did it all for Peshtigo, tossing a tight 3 hitter while fanning 12 and walking one. Oh yes, he also knocked in the only run of the game with a RBI single in the fourth inning.

“Both pitchers threw well and Jordan was pretty much lights out. He got ahead of most hitters and threw 111 pitches over 7 innings,” Peshtigo coach Pat Robbins said.

The Bulldogs snapped the scoreless affair in the fourth inning as number three hitter Marcus Sharkey ripped a one-out double and raced home on single by Berth.

Berth actually struck out 4 batters in the first inning only to see number two hitter Dillon Neuens got aboard as the ball got past catcher Sharkey. Losing pitcher Hunter Kaldor followed with a single before Berth fanned the final three batters of the inning. In the third inning Chase Champagne singled and was thrown out trying to steal second, Neuens walked but was erased on a double play lineout. Niagara’s final threat came in the sixth, putting runners on second and third. Champagne singled and Jake Pedrotti reached on an error before Berth coaxed Patrick Moreau to ground out to short.

Crivitz Knocks

Off Gillett 8-2

A pair of three run outbursts was all that Crivitz needed to turn back visiting Gillett 8-2.

In the second inning Crivitz used a double by winning pitcher Spencer Schwartz along with singles by Tommy Sawinski, Karsten Olson and Ethan Littleton (2 RBIs) to go up 3-0.

Olson opened the fourth inning with a single and raced home as Littleton singled and Jake Sawinski added a two-run base knock.

Schwartz worked 5 innings and allowed one run on one hit with 5 strikeouts. Brock Kueber added two innings on the mound.

Bryce Cibulka went the distance for Gillett, fanning 4 and walking 4.



-Tuesday’s Results-

Bulldogs Bopped

By Wolverines 5-4

In a diamond shocker Tuesday, the Bulldogs saw their title hopes dwindle following a 5-4 loss at the hands of host Crivitz. Socking out 9 hits off Crivitz starter Ethan Littleton and reliever Colton Lange, Peshtigo could only produce 4 runs.,

Meanwhile coach Jeff Dorschner’s troops made the most of 6 hits and 4 walks to tally 5 runs. Leading the way was leadoff hitter Littleton with 2 hits and 2 runs scored while also earning the mound win.

Littleton singled and scored on a two walks and a single by Jake Sawinski for a 1-0 first inning lead.

Peshtigo went up 3-1 in the third on 4 hits as Dakota Keller singled, stole second and scored on a sac fly off the bat of Brendon Thomas. Marcus Sharkey followed with a double, losing pitcher Jordan Berth tripled and scored on a single by Darius Dohl.

Crivitz got even in the fourth as three errors and a single by Littleton tied the score at 3-3.

The Wolverines made the most of two hits in the sixth to pry open a 5-3 spread. Designated hitter Brock Kueber singled and was replaced by runner Luke LaCroix. After Littleton went down on strikes, Kershaw Stumbris was hit by a pitch, Jake Sawinski reached on an error and Spencer Schwartz singled in two runs.

Peshtigo tried to rally in the 7th but could only score one run as Keller ripped a leadoff triple and scooted home on a wild pitch before Sharkey and Berth lashed singles.
