Issue Date: July 17, 2013
It was another tough week for the Peshtigo Legion baseball team losing a pair of North Division teams for a 1-14 season readout. Peshtigo got roughed up by DePere 17-U in a Wednesday home clash before suffering a 4-2 road loss to White Lake Tuesday.
Sporting a 0-11 division readout, Peshtigo will close out the regular season Thursday at 5:30pm hosting Menominee in a make-up affair then head to the 4-team Class A regional at Bonduel next week. Teams competing along with host Bonduel will be Keshena, Peshtigo and Oconto. The A state tournament will be held in Viroqua.
By DePere 17-U
With the offense punching out just two hits, Peshtigo proved to be no match for visiting DePere 17-U Wednesday afternoon 10-1. The only hits for Peshtigo were a third inning single by Marcus Sharkey and a 7th inning single off the bat of Jordan Berth.
Andrew Majewski walked and scored Peshtigos lone run in the first inning on a stolen base, walks to Trevor Bero and Marcus Behnke along with a ground out by Sharkey.
Meanwhile DePere roughed up a trio of Peshtigo pitchers for 10 runs on 7 hits. Add in 6 walks and four hit batsmen and it was a long day for the local hurlers.
DePere scored twice in the opening frame on a single by Reece Lade and an error while adding 3 more in the second inning thanks to one hit and 3 walks.
Taking a 5-0 edge into the 7th, DePere rallied for 5 runs on two hits, two walks and a pair of beaned batters.
