Though Post 39 ended the game on top Appleton was first on the board, getting one run in the first inning, as trent Harp reached base and was driven home off a Nickey Groff single.
But that one run did nothing to shake the confidence of a Marinette team which was starving for a win. And come the second inning Post 39 feasted on an open home plate, pushing across six runs to grab the lead.
With a runner on, Brandon Eick ratcheted out a double. Will LaLonde brought in the first Marinette runs of the game off his two run single.

The Double Days worked out a fifth inning run before Werner helped to make a little breathing room with a seventh inning two run homer over the left field fence. The third run of the inning was obtained by Nick Teteak who reached off a single and scored off a wild pitch for the 8-4 lead.
But the Double Days weren't going to just give Marinette the game as the seventh saw a flood of Appleton runs nearly surmount the lead.
After a walk Appleton's Alex Mox clubbed a single to score a runner. Isaac Kramer nearly helped to steal the lead with his RBI double, but thanks to some good last pitches from Mason Risner, who struck out the third and final out, the Post 39 boys ended their losing streak.
