Brewers Drop Finale To Cubs 4-2


By Tim Kowols




A weekend of great pitching duels concluded Sunday afternoon with the division-leading Chicago Cubs taking the game 4-2 and the series 2-1. Only a couple baserunners represented the offense until the sixth inning when the Cubs registered four straight 2-out hits, including RBIs by Wilson Contreras and Addison Russell against Brewers pitcher Zach Davies. The Brewers would get those two runs right back off of Cubs pitcher John Lackey with a two run homer by Domingo Santana. Solo home runs in consecutive innings by Victor Caratini and Kris Bryant put the Cubs ahead before closer Wade Davis closed the door in the 9th.

 

The Brewers will have a day off Monday while waiting to see what moves will be done before the trade deadline, which occurs at 3 p.m. Miller Park will be rocking again on Tuesday when the Brewers face the St. Louis Cardinals starting at 6:40 p.m.

Rigging Your Kayak for Fishing Success


By Bill Schultz


 



So far this season I've talked about types of fishing kayaks, selecting the right paddle, where to fish and best spots to launch.  Today, I'd like to touch on rigging your kayak for fishing success.

 

For me, two things are key, rod holders and some type of storage crate with rod holders behind my seat in the stearn tankwell.  All my Jackson kayaks have flush mount rod holders, which I prefer, but, I also like the RAM Mount product that extends up from the kayak deck and can be attached to the track system most fishing kayaks come with.  Jackson makes a great crate called the JKrate with ample extra storage and three rod holders.  But, you can also go as simple as a milk crate with PVC tubes for extra rods.

 

After many years of serious kayak fishing, I still haven't installed a locator.  Most of my kayak fishing is in Door County, so, with the clear water and fishing shallow, I haven't had the need.  However, with the funk the smallmouth bass have be in, I've been fishing deeper and knowing depth, structure and water temperature would be helpful.  I would suggest a locator if you are serious about your kayak fishing.

 

I've seen fishing kayaks that except for no Mercury engine, look like mini bass boats with power poles to hold you in place while fishing, trolling motors and more.  The track system I mentioned is perfect for adding accessories to hold a camera, your paddle and anchor trolley to raise and lower an anchor.  Other standard items can include a scale and tape to weigh and measure your catch, landing net, pliers to safely remove lures from the fish and something to cut line.

 

The internet is a great place to check out rigging options and how to do it.  Rigging your kayak for fishing is personal as to how you fish, so, have fun and get on the water.

 

If you have any questions related to rigging your kayak or any other kayak fishing questions, I'm happy to hear from you.  You can email me at kayakfishingwisconsin@gmail.com.  Jackson Kayak National Pro Staff, Bending Branches and Aqua-Bound Pro Staffs.

Brewers' Selig Inducted Into The Hall Of Fame Sunday


By Tim Kowols




Former Milwaukee Brewers owner and baseball commissioner Bud Selig will join the game's greatest when he is inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown Sunday afternoon. Selig brought baseball back to Milwaukee after the Braves abandoned the city to head south for Atlanta. He later led efforts to build Miller Park and was in control when the Brewers reached its highest of highs when they won the AL Pennant and played in the World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals. In 1992, he took over as MLB commissioner in 1992 and saw the game grow to a nearly $10 billion industry despite holding the reins during the 1994 strike, the 2001 All-Star game tie, and the steroid era. Selig joins Tim Raines, Jeff Bagwell, Ivan Rodriguez,  and Vladimir Guerrero in this year's class.

Jared Hughes took the loss for the Brewers after giving up the game winning home run. The Brewers and the Cubs will meet in the rubber game Sunday afternoon at Miller Park with first pitch at 1:10 p.m.

Brewers Edge Cubs 2-1


By Tim Kowols




Two RBI groundouts were all the Milwaukee Brewers to come with a half-game of the streaking Chicago Cubs in a 2-1 victory Friday night. Left hander Brent Suter stifled the Cubs bats for seven innings, allowing just four hits and a walk to go with his five strikeouts. Hernan Perez and Manny Pina drove in the lone runs in the 2nd and 4th innings for the Brewers, while an 8th inning home run by Javier Baez was the only tally the visiting Cubs would muster.

 

The Brewers could retake the NL Central lead with a win Saturday when the two teams meet again at Miller Park at 6:10 p.m.

New Leaders in Kewaunee/Door Salmon Tournament


By K/D Salmon Tournament




A brief reprieve from windy weather allowed anglers to get out at all locations Thursday, and many fished well past sunset to take advantage. Strong northeast winds are expected to rough things up Friday before gradually settling Saturday, then turning light from the southwest Sunday for a final shot at the more than $50,000 in cash and prizes.

 

There were three major additions to the leader board Thursday: a new No. 1 at Algoma, a Sturgeon Bay trophy at No. 3 and another Baileys beauty at No. 6. All told, 135 chinooks larger than 20 pounds have already been put to K/D scales. Two-thirds of the way through the nine-day event, it takes better than 21 pounds to crack the top 100, and 22-3/4 pounds to make the top 50.

Brewers Lose Final Game Against Nats


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Washington Nationals 15-2 on Thursday afternoon. Michael Blazek started on the mound for Milwaukee. He only made it two innings giving up six homers in before he was pulled.

The lone bright spot for the Brewers was Lewis Brinson who had just been called back up to the major leagues. He hit a homer later in the game. It is now his second bomb in as many games.

Milwaukee will now start a weekend series with Chicago Cubs. First pitch will be thrown out in Milwaukee at 7:10 tonight.

Brewers Consecutive Game Streak Leading NL Central Ends At 61 Days


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Washington Nationals 8-5 on Wednesday night. Jimmy Nelson started for the Brewers and was his usual self. He went seven innings giving up two runs while striking out ten Nationals on the night. After he left the game, Washington put up seven runs in the bottom of the eighth.


Milwaukee looked to be in the drivers seat all game being up 2-0 through the first six innings. Domingo Santana crushed a solo shot in the first inning. Also, newly called up Lewis Brinson hit his first homer of his young career in the ninth inning but the rally fell short.

 

Milwaukee will now take on the Nationals in game three Thursday afternoon. First pitch will be thrown out at 11:05.

Packers Training Camp Set To Begin


By Green Bay Packers




A day circled on the calendar of every sports fan – the official beginning of the NFL season – will arrive this Thursday when the Green Bay Packers kick off the 2017 campaign at Ray Nitschke Field.

 

Coming off a 2016 season that saw Green Bay post its eighth straight winning season and make the playoffs for a franchise-best eighth consecutive year, the Packers will begin to write this season's story in front of fans at Nitschke Field.

 

A tradition first started under Curly Lambeau in 1946, training camp in Green Bay remains one of the most intimate settings in all of professional sports. 2017 marks the ninth summer at Nitschke Field, just a short bike ride away from the team facility.

 

Nitschke Field boasts the same playing surface as Lambeau Field and seating for 1,500 fans with unobstructed views. u Just as it does at Lambeau Field, new traditions blend with historic ones at Packers training camp, as players continue to ride children's bicycles to practice, a tradition first started under the legendary Vince Lombardi. Players continue to stay in the dorms at St. Norbert College, the NFL's longest training-camp relationship between a team and school.

 

According to the Greater Green Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau and a 2010 study by AECOM, training camp, along with Packers Family Night, will attract nearly 90,000 visitors from across the nation and as many as 20 foreign countries. With an economic impact estimated at $9 million, training camp is a financial boost to many area businesses.

 

Media and fans can visit www.packers.com for the most up-to-date information regarding the practice schedule, events, dining and accommodation options, activities and more throughout training camp.

13-Year-Old Now Leads K/D Salmon Tournament


By Nick Freimuth




On day four of the Kewaunee/Door Salmon Tournament, the first 30-plus pound fish was registered. Sevastopol 13-year-old Carter Bieri reeled in the fish of a lifetime with Danny Ewaskowitz, Missy Siebold and Cynthia Anshutz. The fishing quartet caught the trophy out of Baileys Harbor.

 

Missy Siebold said, "It was a very fun and exciting morning for the whole family." The weight has to hold up for five more days and with fishing conditions on Lake Michigan less than ideal, it is a possibility the fish may end up on top of the leader board at the end of the week.

 

Ewaskowitz was captain of the older 16-foot Lund boat that landed the tournament leading fish. Ewaskowitz said, "(It was) a little crowded with four people, but (Carter) and my mom (Cynthia Anshutz) wanted to go! They reeled in the first couple fish, downrigger rod went off and I handed it to Missy. She passed it to Carter since it was his first time out all year! Took out over 700 feet of line, but he reeled him all the way in! Did a great job."

Brewers Shutout Nationals To Remain In First Place


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Washington Nationals 8-0 on Tuesday. Zach Davies was on the bump for Milwaukee and pitched nearly eight innings of scoreless baseball. He fanned seven Nationals on the night.

The bats were back at it last night as the Brewers scored eight runs on eleven hits. Eric Thames and Manny Pina provided the power for 'The Crew' when they both went deep in the fifth inning. Manny Pina collected three hits on the day.

The Brewers will now continue their series with the Nationals on Wednesday. First pitch will be thrown out at 6:05.

By Kewaunee/Door County Salmon Tournament




As we approach the mid-way point of the Kewaunee/Door County Salmon Tournament anglers are still reeling in some great salmon. Wind, waves and weather hampered fishing on Day 3. The weather kept the top of the leader board intact. Here is a look at the top-50 after three days of fishing:

Brewers Lead Of NL Central Hits 60 Consecutive Days


By Nick Freimuth




The Cubs nearly snapped the Brewers run atop the NL Central yesterday. However a 3-1 loss to the White Sox kept Milwaukee atop the division and ran their tally of consecutive days leading the NL Central to 60. It has been a run that very few expected for the Brewers this season.

 

The Cubs fell to (51-47) after their loss Monday. The Brewers are (53-48) and did not play Monday. They open up a three-game series against the Washington Nationals this evening at 6:05 PM. On Friday 'The Crew' will return to Miller Park after a 10-game road trip that has not been very kind to the Brewers.

Door County Volleyball League First Place Tie Broken


By Nick Freimuth




The Door County Co-Ed Volleyball League standings are still extremely close. However, after eight weeks of a first place tie Tippy Canoe is now all alone atop the leader board. Tippy Canoe 3 lost their first game of the season last week and are now in a two-way tie for second place with Richard's Pub and Grill 1. The difference between first and second place is still just one game. Considering three games are played each week, and none of the top three teams have played each other, the remainder of the season is going to be very interesting. Here is a look at league standings:

Packers Promote McDonough To Director Of Ticketing


By Green Bay Packers




The Green Bay Packers named Jason McDonough director of ticketing and premium seating, Craig Benzel, the team's vice president of sales and business development, announced today.

 

During his time with the Packers, McDonough has served as manager and, most recently, assistant director of premium seating, producing high client satisfaction levels, record customer retention percentages and steady revenue growth. He was a key decision-maker in developing the south end's new premium seating space, and helped lead the recent two-year suite and club seat renovation project.

 

As part of McDonough's promotion, the ticketing and premium seating departments will be merging to create one department.

 

"Jason has done an excellent job leading our premium seating department over the past six years," said Benzel. "His varied experience working with premium seat ticket holders, developing new seating space and spearheading the recent suite and club seating renovation project will be a valuable asset as we combine our premium seating and ticketing departments. We're looking forward to continuing to serve our season ticket holders and premium seat holders with Jason's leadership."

 

McDonough joined the Packers in 2010 as a premium seating sales executive, and was promoted one year later to manager of premium seating sales and services. He came to the Packers after spending three years as manager of client services for the Miami Dolphins and Sun Life Stadium (2007-10). He also spent time as manager and later, director, in the premium seating department for the Florida Panthers (2003-07) and as an account executive in new business development with the Minnesota Wild (2002-03).

 

McDonough, a native of McHenry, Ill., earned a B.A. in 1998 and an MBA in 2001 from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minn. His family includes his wife, Nina, and his children, Finn and Teagan.

Brewers & Cubs Tied Atop NL Central


By Brett Kinnard




The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 6-3 on Sunday night. Junior Guerra started for 'The Crew' and went five innings giving up five runs in the process. The Brewers were never able to recover from being down.

 

Jonathan Villar singled in two runs in the fifth to tie up the game for Milwaukee. That was all she wrote as the Phillies hung four runs in the bottom of that inning to eventually hold on and beat the Brewers.

 

Milwaukee will now travel to Washington to take on the Nationals in a series. First pitch will be thrown out Tuesday night at 6:05.

Anglers Out On The Lake For Kewaunee Door Salmon Tournament


By Marissa Hatlen




Saturday marked the beginning of the Kewaunee Door Salmon Tournament, bringing hundreds of anglers from around the state and across the country in search of the area's famous Chinook Salmon. The current lead belongs to Phil Romdenne of Casco, who registered a 27.84-lb salmon at Baileys 57 Saturday morning. Co-organizer Kevin Naze says he expects the first-place fish, and the stories, to get even bigger as the competition goes on.

 



 

The tournament is the largest summer salmon contest in the Great Lakes, and plans to award over $50,000 in daily prizes. Last year over 3,000 amateur anglers wrestled salmon into their boats for the tournament, and registration is open this year throughout the week until the contest ends on July 30. To enter the competition yourself or see photos of the biggest catches, you can visit the tournament web page at the link below.

Bullfrogs Drop Game One To Growlers, 3-4


By Marissa Hatlen




The Green Bay Bullfrogs fell to the Kalamazoo Growlers 3-4 in the first of a two-game series in Michigan Saturday night. This puts the Bullfrogs at 3-1 against Kalamazoo this season. The Frogs scored early in the first inning and built up a 3-1 lead by the seventh, but the Growlers answered with five hits in a row and three runs in the eighth to push ahead 4-3. Kalamazoo brought Walter Talcott in from the bullpen for three strikeouts of the Frogs' first three hitters, sealing the win for the Growlers.

The Bullfrogs will have a chance to break even on the series tomorrow as they face the Growlers again, starting pitcher Garret Gooden for the first time this season. Green Bay will travel to Battle Creek next, and their next home game will be July 26th against the Fond Du Lac Dock Spiders.

Brewers Hang On To NL Central Lead With Win Over Phillies


By Marissa Hatlen




With Ryan Braun back in the lineup for the first time since Tuesday, the Brewers' offense lit up Saturday night to snap their losing streak and nab a win over Philadelphia, 9-8. Braun went 3 for 3 on his return from a minor injury this week and drove in four of the Brewers' first six runs, including a two-run homer in the fifth.

It was a shaky road to victory for Milwaukee, despite stretching the team's early lead to 6-0 by the fifth inning. The Phillies answered with their first run of the night in the bottom of the fifth, and by the end of the seventh inning, they had closed the gap to 8-5. Cameron Rupp smashed a three-run homer off Brewers pitcher Jacob Barnes in the eighth to tie it up, but Carlos Santana quickly put Milwaukee back over the top with a base hit RBI. The Brewers held on to their 9-8 lead the rest of the night to edge their lead in the division standings to one game ahead of the Chicago Cubs.

Kewaunee County Advances To State With Legion Tourney Win


By Mark Kanz




The Kewaunee County American Legion baseball team will be representing the area at the state legion baseball tournament for the third time in six years.

The Lakers rode the arm of pitcher Ian Doell to a 2-0 win over Pulaski Saturday. Doell struck out seven to earn the complete game victory.  Kewaunee County was 3-0 in the double elimination tournament. Mason Isenberg had three hits, scored once and drove in the Lakers' other run Saturday.

Kewaunee County meets Waterford Wednesday at 4 pm in Merrill in the eight Team Double A tournament.

Brewers Continue Tumble With Second Loss To Phillies


By Marissa Hatlen




Things were rolling downhill from the start for the Brewers Friday night, with Matt Garza giving up a two-run home run in the first inning against the Philadelphia Phillies. Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola had nine strikeouts in seven innings to hold the Brewers to one run on the night, and the Brewers lost their sixth straight game 6-1.

 

 

Heading into the All Star break, the Brewers had won 11 of their last 13 matchups, and they held the NL Central lead by 5 ½ games. Now, after two losses to the Phillies and a four-game sweep by the Pirates, the Brewers' lead over the defending champion Cubs has shrunk to just one game. Milwaukee's offense has sputtered recently, producing a total of just 12 runs over the last six games; with a challenging stretch ahead, the Brewers will need to pick up the pace to hang on to the lead they've held in the NL Central since May 26th. The Brewers play the Phillies again tonight in the second of a three-game series in Philadelphia.

Despite First Grand Slam Of Season, Bullfrogs Can't Hold Off Bombers


By Marissa Hatlen




The Green Bay Bullfrogs fell to the Battle Creek Bombers Friday, losing the second game of the series 10-5. The Bombers pulled ahead with a four-run second inning and a three-run fourth, holding off the Bullfrogs' offense without allowing a hit until the sixth inning. The Frogs made a five-run comeback including the team's first grand slam of the season, hit by Dan Leckie; the grand slam was Leckie's first home run of the season. But the Bombers produced another three runs to buoy their lead in the seventh, and the Bullfrogs couldn't close the gap.

The Bullfrogs will next play the Growlers in Kalamazoo, Michigan, hoping to add to their 3-0 season record against Kalamazoo. After the two-game series, the Frogs will return to play at the Bombers. Their next home game on July 26th will see the Bullfrogs face off against the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders.

Kewaunee County in Title Game; Blazers Eliminated In Legion Tourney


By Mark Kanz




The Kewaunee County Lakers are one win away from a berth in the American Legion AA State Tournament. The regional hosts advanced to the championship games with a 2-0 win over Ashwaubenon Friday.

Meanwhile, the Ahnapee Trailblazers suffered a second loss and were eliminated from the tournament with a 4-3 loss to Pulaski in Friday's first game.  The Blazers led 3-2 going into the bottom of the 7th inning only to see Pulaski score twice to win the game. Pulaski then rallied to eliminate Ashwaubenon 4-3 in 8 innings in Friday's nightcap.

Kewaunee County hosts Pulaski Saturday in the regional championship.  Pulaski would need to beat the Lakers twice to eliminate Kewaunee County from the double elimination tournament.  The only tournament winner opens play Wednesday at the state tournament in Merrill.

The Green Bay Packers will be settling in to their home away from home next Tuesday, July 25. It will mark the 60th year the Packers have held their summer training camp at St. Norbert College. It is the longest such relationship between a pro football team and a college in the NFL.

 

Then-president of the Packers, Russ Bogda, and then-head coach Lyle Blackburn first approached St. Norbert College in the spring of 1957. At the time, the Packers were headquartering at UW-Stevens Point. In the summer of 1958, Coach Scooter McClean and his staff brought the Packers to the St. Norbert campus' Frank J. Sensenbrenner Residence Hall, to various classrooms for training sessions, and to the dining facilities on the river bank. Over the 60 years, the string of successive summers at St. Norbert College has never been broken.

 

The Packers will begin moving into their St. Norbert College rooms on Tuesday, July 25, and will move out mid-August.

 

The college doesn't host any on-field activities, but it does serve as the team base for all living arrangements, transportation and meals, including dinner and snack.

Brewers Unable To Sweep Philly

Newly called up Brewer Brett Phillips had a pinch hit bomb in the fifth to put them up 2-1. Milwaukee now holds a four and a half game lead over the Chicago Cubs for the NL division. Every game is important from here on out.

Bullfrogs On Wrong Side Of Walk-off


By Green Bay Bullfrogs




The Green Bay Bullfrogs fall to the Lakeshore Chinooks 3-2 as the Chinooks hit a two-run walk-off home run to win. Coming into the game the Bullfrogs were undefeated at Kapco Park and were staring down their fourth win there when Richardson hit a two-run walk-off home run over the left centerfield wall with 2 outs on the board. Ethan Evanko gets the loss for the Bullfrogs and Joe Heemean gets the win for the Lakeshore Chinooks. The Bullfrogs drop to 2-9 on the second half of the year and are 3-4 against the Chinooks on the season.

The Bullfrogs and Chinooks found themselves in a pitcher's duel tonight in Lakeshore. Bullfrogs' pitcher Michael Bohlke might have pitched one of his best game as a Bullfrog as Bohlke went eight complete innings for the Frogs and only allowed one run. Neither team would plate a run in the game until the sixth inning. The Bullfrogs would strike first in the game when Alex Pener smacked a RBI single that scored Alonzo Jones in the sixth inning. Alex Pener would manage another RBI single in the eighth inning giving the Bullfrogs a 2-0 lead. The Lakeshore Chinooks would plate a run in the bottom of the eighth inning off of a single from TJ Raguse edging the Fish closer. In the ninth inning the Bullfrogs would go down in order giving the Chinooks some momentum. Ethan Evanko would get the nod to come in and close the game out for the Frogs. Evanko retired the first two batters he faced, including striking out All-Star catcher Nick Gatewood and forcing a ground out. With two outs on the board, Rylan Thomas would dig in and hit a single to centerfield, giving his team some life. Jacob Richardson would then come into pinch hit and he would take the opportunity in stride. Richardson would launch a two-run shot over the left field wall sending the home crowd into a frenzy and giving his Chinooks the lead.

The Bullfrogs Player of the Night is Michael Bohlke. Bohlke would pitch an unreal game for the Bullfrogs. Bohlke went eighth strong, got ahead in the count, and let his defense make plays behind him. Bohlke's stat line on the night: 8.0 IP, 1 R, 3 K, 6 H, 1 BB.

The Bullfrogs are back in action Sunday at home against this Lakeshore Chinooks.

Brewers Post Another Win


By Mark Kanz




Travis Shaw's solo homer in the 8th inning snapped a 2-all tie and helped the Brewers secure a 3-2 win over the Phillies at Miller Park. It was appropriate the Brewers used the long ball to score a win on the same night the 1982 pennant winning team, known as "Harvey's Wallbangers" for the ability to hit homers, was being honored.  Hernan Perez also homered for Milwaukee.  Jimmy Nelson held the Phillies in check surrendering just three hits in 6 2/3 innings of work.  The Brewers have won 11 of 13 and go for the three-game sweep of the Phillies Sunday afternoon.  Matt Garza will pitch for the crew, while Jeremy Hellickson gets the ball for Philadelphia.

Launching Your Kayak For Door County Smallies


By Bill Schultz




With over 300 miles of shoreline there are plenty of places to launch your kayak to find Door County smallmouth bass.  Here are a few great places to launch where you can find smallies this time of year.  Most kayak anglers stay close to shore, where, in shallower water and around docks you'll always find fish.  Although, they tend to be smaller, but, still fun.  Bigger fish can be found in deeper, 8 to 20 foot depths.

 

I suggest heading north from Sturgeon Bay and a good starting point is launching at Murphy Park and fishing Horseshoe Bay to the north.  There are many roads in Door County that dead-end at the water making great access points to good fishing.  Along White Cliff road going north out of Egg Harbor there are several these roads that get you onto the east shore of Egg Harbor and south end of Juddville Bay, nice locations to find smallies.

 

In Peninsula Park, there's a great kayak launch at Tennison Bay, which holds small.  Launching at the Sister Bay Park puts you on smallies both north and south.  There's a great launch at Garrett's Bay that gets you on the bass there and Hedgehog Harbor.  On the Lake Michigan side for a few dollars you can launch at Cole's Rowleys Bay Cabins and get out on Rowleys Bay and the Mink River.  The bays farther south all have places to launch and hold smallies, but, just not in the numbers you see on the Green Bay side.

 

If you are looking to do some Door County kayak fishing, use these tips, but, also get on Google Maps to find those roads that dead-end at the water and other access points.  The wonderful thing about Door County is that even if the fish aren't biting, you are kayaking in some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable, a real bonus.  If you have any questions, I'm always happy to help at kayakfishingwisconsin@gmail.com.

8-Run Blitz Boosts Brewers To Beat Phillies


By Marissa Hatlen




The Brewers returned from the All Star break with their tenth victory in the last twelve games, defeating the Philadelphia Phillies 9-6 at home last night. Eight runs in the second inning put Milwaukee ahead early; Orlando Arcia hit a three-run home run, and Ryan Braun added a grand slam to widen the lead. With the offense backing him up, starter Zach Davies improved his pitching record to 11-4 despite a season high of five walks and six strikeouts.

The eight-run blitz matched the Brewers' season record for a single-inning offensive burst. The team will host the Phillies again tonight at 6 pm.

Green Bay Bullfrogs Can't Hold On To Lead In Loss To Rafters


By Marissa Hatlen




The Green Bay Bullfrogs built up a 7-1 lead in the first three innings, but that wasn't enough to fend off the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters, who came back with three runs in the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings to win the game. Last night's game wrapped up the season series with the Rafters; the Bullfrogs went 1-7 in the series against the defending Northwoods League Champions.

The Bullfrogs travel to Kapco Park tomorrow for their final matchup of the season with Lakeshore. Green Bay is 3-3 against Lakeshore this year. The team will return to Green Bay to play Lakeshore at home this Sunday.

Ahnapee Trailblazers A Sweep Away From Division Title


By Jamie Alberts




Jared Van Bramer hurled a one-hit shutout in a 6-0 Ahnapee Trailblazers win over Gibraltar Thursday night in American Legion Baseball.  Van Bramer struck out 10, including striking out the side to close the game in the 7th.  Gibraltar's lone hit was a Seth Merline infield single in the third inning.

Anthony Moore hit three doubles to lead the Ahnapee offensive attack.  Jacob Moeller also had three hits (one double) for the Trailblazers.  Ahnapee (3-1 in conference) closes their season with a doubleheader against Mishicot at 6:00 Friday night at Memorial Field in Sturgeon Bay.  An Ahnapee sweep would give them their second straight division title.

Fish Creek Cyclist Reflects On Rides In Tour De France


By Tim Kowols




As he watches this year's Tour De France from his home in Fish Creek, 82-year-old Ken Jones looks back fondly at the three stages he rode with his son a decade ago. Jones, as he puts it, bluffed his into a sponsorship with Trek after only seriously getting into cycling six months before and not familiar with tackling the contours present on the Tour's mountainous terrain. Often starting four hours ahead of the pros on the circuit, Jones says he had a few close calls being forced off the course after riding over 100 miles at a time.

 



 

Jones was inspired to ride in the Tour de France as an amateur by his son, who had been competitively cycling since he was 15 years old. This year's 21 stage Tour de France ends on July 23.

Brewers Forgotten About In All-Star Game


By Nick Freimuth




Only one Milwaukee Brewer was selected to represent the National League in the Major League Baseball All-Star Game Tuesday night. A game that lasted ten innings and was won by the American League with a lead off home run in the tenth inning by Seattle Mariner Robinson Cano.

 

The one and only Milwaukee Brewer, closer Corey Knebel, did not pitch in the game. He was used heavily in Milwaukee's games Saturday and Sunday, which may have played a factor in him not playing Tuesday night. It was however his first All-Star game and most would have assumed he would get a chance to play on the league's biggest stage.

 

Add to the fact that the Brewers lead the National League Central Division by 5.5 games and had no other representation at the Mid-Summer Classic. For those Brewers fans that stayed up late to see if their only representative got in the game, it was a disappointing night.

Brewers Lead Atop NL Central Will Hit 40 Consecutive Days


By Nick Freimuth




The Milwaukee Brewers have been thee surprise team in Major League Baseball this season. While the Houston Astros look like the class of the league, Milwaukee continues to stay atop the National League Central Division. Yes, the Cubs and Cardinals are under-performing. Had anyone predicted the Brewers would be four games above .500 and have a two game lead over the Cubs on July 3, most Wisconsin baseball fans would have thought you were crazy.

 

By holding a two-game lead on Monday, at the very worst they would still lead the division on July 5. Wednesday marks the 40th consecutive game, the Brewers will be in first place. Not for one single day since May 27th has the 'Brew Crew' slipped into second. This is a remarkably impressive streak.

 

Miller Park will play host to an inter-league series starting this afternoon at 2:10. The Cubs have the day off today and will a short two-game series against the Rays starting tomorrow. Then the top two teams will meet Thursday at Wrigley Field for one game before the Brewers fly out top New Your to play the Yankees for a weekend series.

Picking The Right Kayak Paddle


By Bill Schultz--Guest Correspondent




Most people spend more time picking their kayak than picking their paddle.  But, your paddle is the way you move your kayak, so, you should try to buy the most expensive, lightest paddle you can afford.  Lighter paddles are less fatiguing, meaning you can enjoy your time on the water longer and feel less sore at the end of the day.  Also, more expensive paddles use better components and last longer.  The formula is that each ounce lighter paddle equates to 100 pounds per hour you don't have to pull around.  So, a 3-ounces lighter saves you 300 pounds extra per hour.  I would suggest a paddle no heavier than 31 or 32 ounces.

 

Standard sized blades like the Aqua-Bound Sting Ray Hybrid is perfect for most recreational kayakers.  And, at around 30-ounces is very light, high-quality and surprisingly only costs $139.  The standard sized blade is for a low-angle stroke with the paddle relatively horizontal while paddling.  The oversized blade, like the 31 ounce Aqua-Bound Manta Ray Hybrid is also a high-quality, reasonably priced at $139 and is perfect for those sit-on-top fishing kayaks that need a little more horsepower.  Oversized blades have a bigger bite, more control and high-angle paddling where the shaft is more vertical during your stroke.

 

Picking a paddle is also dependent on your height and the width of your kayak.  For example, if you are 5'7" tall and your kayak is 24" to 28" wide, then a paddle 230 cm would be best.  You can find sizing charts on most paddle company websites, like Aqua-Bound, a Wisconsin company.  Generally, most touring kayaks are narrower and require a shorter paddle, with recreational and fishing kayaks wider and requiring longer paddles.

 

If you have any questions about selecting the right paddle for you, email me at kayakfishingwisconsin@gmail.com and I'd be happy to assist.  Also, check out one of the area outfitters who have knowledgeable staff who should be able to help.

13 Year Old Girl Hits A Hole-In-One At Peninsula State Golf Course


By Paul Schmitt




A thirteen-year-old girl from Evanston, Illinois did something last Friday at a Door County golf course that many life-long golfers who hit the links will never experience.  Sophie Berghammer hit a hole-in-one on the 17th hole at Peninsula State Golf Course.  The incredible feat was witnessed by her father, Joe Berghammer along with two local golfers from Sturgeon Bay who joined them on the course.  Sophie says she initially didn't even realize she had hit the hole-in-one on the 171-yard par 3 hole.

 



 

The Berghammers, who have a second home in Ellison Bay, are staying the month of July in Door County and have golfed Peninsula State Golf Course the past two summers.  According to her father, Sophie's favorite sport is hockey, which may now have to take a backseat to golf after her amazing hole-in-one.

Errors Plague Bullfrogs in 5-1 Loss


By Tim Kowols




The Green Bay Bullfrogs did starter Jared Tobey no favors during a 5-1 loss in Wausau Friday against the Wisconsin Woodchucks. Tobey allowed 3 runs, but only allowed one that was earned in a game that saw the Bullfrogs commit four total errors. The bright spot for the Bullfrogs was a RBI base hit by Ben Hart. The Bullfrogs return home Saturday to face the Battle Creek Bombers at 6:35 p.m.

Hart Formally Retires As Brewer, Inducted Into Wall Of Fame


By Tim Kowols




He has not played in over 2 seasons, but former outfielder Corey Hart will now always be remembered as a Milwaukee Brewer. Hart signed a one-day contract Friday so he could file his retirement papers as a member of the Brewers before his induction into the organization's new Wall of Honor at Miller Park. He played 13 years for the Brewers and played a major role in the organization's renaissance in the late 2000's. Hart's career ended in 2015 after brief stints with the Seattle Mariners and Pittsburgh Pirates before lower body injuries claimed the rest of his days as a Major Leaguer.

Vogt Leads Brewers Past Marlins 3-2


By Tim Kowols




It was the Milwaukee Brewers' newest addition providing the offense it needed as catcher Stephen Vogt slugged two home runs in a 3-2 win over the visiting Miami Marlins. After spotting the Marlins a 2-0 lead heading into the 5th innng, Vogt hit a solo home run off starter Edinson Volquez to cut the lead in half. Two innings later, Vogt struck again with the game-winning homer off reliever David Phelps to give the Brewers the lead late. Closer Corey Knebel shut the door in the top of the 9th, securing the win for reliever Carlos Torres.

 

The Brewers look to get the series win Saturday against the Marlins when they two teams meet up again on national television beginning at 3:10 p.m.
