" Baseball Preview"" Marines Will Rely on Strong Pitching Staff

Issue Date: April 19, 2018

Like many teams, Marinette is itching to return to the field and start playing real baseball. When they're able to hit the grass regularly, they'll be leaning on their pitching.

Senior Matt Eldredge is the team's top pitcher, having pitched game two of the team's double-header with Luxemburg-Casco on Thursday. Andy Walters says Eldredge, a lefty, "has the potential to be one of the better pitchers in the conference."

Junior Trey Bretl, a returning all-conference pitcher, should also feature on the mound for the Marines. When they're done, Kyler Kruse will be a key reliever.

"I think our pitching is going to be strong for us this year," Walters said. "We have some guys with pretty good velocity but can also mix it up with off-speed [pitches]. The most important thing about our pitching staff is that we have depth and they will all throw strikes."

At the plate, senior catcher Adam Wahl comes in as the team's leader. A second-team Northeastern Conference player last season, he hit .365 and has "speed to match his power," Walters said. Junior Wil LaLonde will serve as Wahl's primary backup.

Senior middle infielder Tanner Cole will bat lead off, with Tyler Fayta, Rylie Nelson and Carter Bourgeois all seeing steady time in the field. Chris McKeever, Ryan Dura and Sam Gressell will provide outfield depth.

"Hitting is always the big question, especially in spring baseball when it's cold," Walters said. "If we want to win, then we have to be able to score runs."

With this weather, it could be even colder than usual, with temperatures unlikely to reach the 50s for at least this week and snow potentially leaving fields too wet to play on.

"We just have to make the best out of the situation and be prepared to play once we can get outside," Walters said.



Marinette Falls Twice

to Luxemburg-Casco

The Marinette Marines finally got on the field against Luxemburg-Casco on Thursday, April 12, dropping a double-header to the reigning North Eastern Conference champions in Ripon.

The Marines lost the first game 7-4, getting two hits each from Matt Eldredge and Rylie Nelson. Trey Bretl took the loss on the mound, going five innings and allowing six earned runs.

The second game ended in a 9-2 Spartan win, with errors causing problems for the Marines. Matt Eldredge went five innings, with nine runs crossing the plate against him, even though none were earned.

After the two losses to a team that finished 15-3 in conference play last season, Marines Head Coach Andy Walters says the team has some work to do in the field.

"Our defense has the potential to be very good, but we had a rough game defensively that shows we still have some work to do," Walters said.

With last week's weather, the team may have to continue working on its defensive issues in the gym.

"We're definitely more than ready to start getting into the game routine but it is what it is and everyone is in the same boat," Walters said. "We do what we can in practice to simulate competitive "game-like' situations."

Marinette Soccer Team Starts Season With Win



Marinette's girls' soccer team got the season started with a win over Denmark on Thursday, April 12, taking a 2-1 victory in poor weather.

Marinette got goals from Maddie Schultz and Maria Bieberitz to escape Denmark with the win.

The Marines finished last season with a 2-13-2 record, going 1-5-2 in the North Eastern Conference.

Chris Mahlik will coach the team as they try and make their way up the NEC standings this season.
