A five-run fifth inning wasn't quite enough for the Peshtigo Bulldogs to top the Kewaunee Storm on Thursday.
The Bulldogs got five runs from Mattie Lacoursiere, Dreya Detry, Grace Wickman, Karli Cahill and Kennedy Chmela, all coming with two outs as the five hitters at the top of the Peshtigo order got singles. Six and seven-hitters Allsion Dudka and Grace Meyers added on RBI singles as well.
"We just started really trying to put the ball in play earlier in the count," Peshtigo coach Tom Christensen said. "We noticed that she really doesn't walk anybody. She's around the plate, I felt that tonight we'll take advantage of what the pitchers like to do: throw the first strike, so we started swinging at the first strike."
That big inning gave Peshtigo a 5-4 lead as the game looked to be turning around, but Kewaunee scored three in the sixth inning to take the lead 7-5, which would last for the remainder of the game.
The Bulldogs committed three errors in the inning, which didn't help the cause.
"We had a chance to get out of it clean, but we booted it around a little bit and they took advantage of it and took the lead," Christensen said.
In the seventh, Peshtigo put two runners on base with just one out, advancing them to second and third, but they couldn't find a way to bring them across with the bottom of the order.
"They're a good team," Christensen said of Kewaunee. "We came back, we fought. We always do that. It didn't go our way."
Meyers took the loss, though only three of the seven runs she allowed were earned.
Dudka had three hits, while Lacoursiere, Detry, Wickman and Chmela had two hits apiece for Peshtigo.
