Brewers drop game one to Dodgers

The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 Thursday night. Zach Davies started on the mound for Milwaukee. He had a stellar performance going five innings and not giving up a single run. Eventually, his start would be squandered after Matt Albers gave up three runs in an inning. 

 

Hits were few and hard to find for the Brewers. They were getting no-hit well into the fifth inning before Orlando Arcia broke it up with a single. Christian Yelich would eventually hit his 10th homer in the ninth inning but it wasn’t enough as the Brewers fell. 

 

The two teams will now run it back for a Friday night game. Jhoulys Chacin will start on the bump for the Brewers. Ross Stripling will grab the rock for the Dodgers. First pitch will be thrown out at 7:10. 

Soccer Recap: Sturgeon Bay, L-C lose

A shot off the post in the game's 20th minute set up the game's lone goal in a 1-0 Sturgeon Bay loss to NEW Lutheran at City Stadium in Green Bay.

 

The Clippers offense made life difficult for Blazers goalkeeper Sadie Johnsen, who had to make six saves in the game and needed several other defensive stops in her own box to keep the tally that low.

 

The games lone goal came from the Blazers' Abbey Czaja after she was the only one to locate the deflected ball after it went off the post. It took that kind of luck to add a blemish to the afternoon for Clippers goalkeeper McKenna Gibson, who made three saves in the game.

 

 

In other soccer action at City Stadium, Luxemburg-Casco lost to Green Bay East 2-1.

Brewers drop game three 

The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 6-3 Wednesday afternoon. Corbin Burnes started on the bump and got roughed up again in his start. He barely made it past three innings and gave up five runs in the process. He’s a good young pitcher that will look to find his stride here in the season. 

 

Milwaukee’s pitchers stayed hot at the plate as relief pitcher, Aaron Wilkerson launched a two-run bomb in the fifth inning. Christian Yelich also singled in a run in the game to give him eleven RBI’s in the series. The Brewers haven’t lost a set to the Cardinals yet. 

 

Milwaukee will now stay at home and welcome in the Los Angeles Dodgers for a weekend series. Zach Davies will have his name called in the rotation. He will square off against Julio Urias of the Dodgers. First pitch will be thrown out at 7:10 from Miller Park on Thursday. 

Bucks roll to 2-0 series lead

The Milwaukee Bucks are not taking their foot off the accelerator. Following a 35 point win Sunday in game one, Giannis Antetokounmpo and friends eased past Detroit by 21 on Wednesday night. The 120-99 win featured game-high scorer Eric Bledsoe's 27 point performance. The "Greek Freak" added 26 points and 12 rebounds in only 29 minutes.

 



The difference maker Wednesday was Pat Connaughton. His 18 points, nine rebounds and four blocked shots off the bench energized the team and the crowd. Fiserv Forum was raucous Wednesday from the opening tip through the final buzzer. 

 

Celebrity appearances by Aaron Rodgers, Danica Patrick, Ryan Braun, Christian Yelich, David Bahktiari, Greg Jennings and many more also seemed to give the game a little more juice Wednesday night.

 

Game three of the best of seven series moves to Detroit Saturday night for a 7:00 PM tip-off. Game four will follow Monday at 7:00 PM and if necessary game five would be back in Milwaukee Wednesday, April 24.

 




Packers release 2019 Schedule

The Green Bay Packers’ 2019 NFL regular-season schedule – highlighted by five prime-time contests (subject to flexible scheduling) on the original schedule for the sixth straight year (2014-19) – was released Wednesday evening by the National Football League.

 

The Packers will open the season at the Chicago Bears in the NFL’s Thursday night regular-season opener. It marks the fourth time in team history that Green Bay has opened at Chicago (1979, 1981, 2015).

 

The Packers will open their home slate in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings, marking just the fourth time (2003, 2008, 2018) since the NFC North was formed in 2002 that Green Bay has played division opponents in both of the first two games.

 

Green Bay stays at home both of the next two weeks, the first time the Packers have played three straight at home in September since 1990 (Weeks 1-3). They host the Denver Broncos in Week 3 and the Philadelphia Eagles in a Thursday night matchup in Week 4.

 

The Packers travel to take on the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5. For the second time in three seasons, the Packers will host the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football, this time in Week 6. It is the fifth Monday night matchup between the two clubs (1964, 1971, 1972, 2017).

 

A home game against the Oakland Raiders in Week 7 will be the Packers’ fifth at Lambeau in 2019, marking the most home contests for Green Bay in the first seven games of a season since 1978 when it also played five at home (not including the 1987 strike year).

 

Over the next six weeks, the Packers play four road games and one home contest. In Week 8, Green Bay is at Kansas City in a Sunday night matchup. The following week, Green Bay travels to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers.

 

In Week 10, the Packers host the Carolina Panthers in the fourth contest between the two teams in the last six years (2014, 2015, 2017). Green Bay will have its bye the following week, marking the first Week 11 bye for the Packers and the latest for the team since the bye was reintroduced in 1990. 

 

Over the next two weeks, Green Bay will crisscross the country, playing at the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12 and at the New York Giants in Week 13. The Packers have won five of their last six at the 49ers, including their last trip in 2015 (17-3).

 

The Packers’ final two regular-season home games will take place in Weeks 14-15. First, they take on the Washington Redskins in the third matchup between the two in the last five years (including the postseason) but the first in Green Bay since 2013.

 

Week 15 has the Bears coming to Green Bay and starts a run of three straight divisional games to finish the regular season for the third time since the NFC North was formed in 2002 (2006, 2016).

 

The Packers close out the regular season with two road games for the first time since 2004 when they played at Minnesota and Chicago. In Week 16, Green Bay is at the Vikings and on MNF for the second time. Green Bay will close out the regular season against the Lions for the fourth straight year and the fifth time in the last six seasons.

“Flexible scheduling” will again be used in Weeks 11-17. In Weeks 11-16, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday Night Football on NBC. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time. A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game. For Week 17, the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to December 29. The schedule does not list a Sunday night game in Week 17, but an afternoon game with playoff implications will be moved to that time slot. Flexible scheduling ensures quality matchups in all Sunday time slots in those weeks and gives “surprise” teams a chance to play their way into primetime.  Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday or Monday nights.

 

Sunday night games in Weeks 5-16 are subject to change.

The lone senior has led by example since she first joined the team, qualifying for the state meet last year in the high jump and as a member of the Gibraltar girls 4 x 100-meter relay. Caldecott credits her coaches and her teammates for the success she has been able to enjoy.

Kuhn, a former fullback who played nine seasons in Green Bay, was a key member of teams that won Super Bowl XLV and five division titles.

 

During his time as a player, Kuhn developed an interest in media and broadcasting and participated in the NFL Broadcasting Boot Camp in 2015. He spent time during and after his playing career guest-hosting and co-hosting a variety of radio and live sports programs.

 

In his new role as sports analyst, he will create and contribute content to the Packers’ digital properties, including packers.com and the team’s social media platforms.

 

“We’re excited to welcome John to our digital and broadcast team,” said Dow. “His unique football perspective and his great connection with Packers fans and the community will be an outstanding addition to our staff.”

 

Kuhn, a York, Pennsylvania, native, began his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2005 and was claimed off waivers by Green Bay in 2007, where he went on to earn three Pro Bowl selections (2011, 2014-15). He finished his career playing two seasons (2016-17) with the New Orleans Saints, and officially retired as a Packer in March of this year.

Packers claim kicker Ficken

The Green Bay Packers claimed K Sam Ficken off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transaction Monday.

 

Ficken, a 6-foot-1, 192-pound, first-year player out of Penn State, was originally signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2016 but was released late in August that year. He spent part of the 2017 training camp with the Kansas City Chiefs. Late in the 2017 season, Ficken played in two games for the Los Angeles Rams, connecting on two of three field goals, four of five extra points and recording five touchbacks on eight kickoffs. Last season, he appeared in two games for the Rams and made all 10 extra points, one of three field goals and recorded 11 touchbacks on 13 kickoffs. Ficken will wear No. 7 for the Packers.

Yelich has career night in win

The Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 10-7 on Monday night. Freddy Peralta started on the bump for Milwaukee and went a little over three innings giving up three earned runs. Lorenzo Cain made another crazy leap at the wall to rob a homer early on in the game. It’s the second time he’s done that early on in the season. 

 

Christian Yelich had another monster night. He hit three bombs in the game and drove in seven runs for the Brewers. He gave a tip of the hat to the crowd as they begged for a curtain-call after his third one. He is right on pace to make another run at MVP this year. 

 

Milwaukee will now run it back for game two on Tuesday. Brandon Woodruff will look to make his second start against the Cardinals. He will be going against Jack Flaherty of St. Louis. First pitch will be thrown out at 6:40 from Miller Park. 

Baseball preview: Southern Door manager reflects on son's no-hitter

Southern Door baseball manager Dave Neinas tries to be a coach on a diamond and a dad at home, but that does not mean those lines did not blur a little bit earlier this month. It was Neinas’ son Charlie that went the distance to record a no-hitter against the Algoma Wolves 1-0 on April 5th. The freshman hurler struck out 10 Wolves batters while allowing only three to reach. Neinas says they were able to crack a small smile after a wild pitch gave the Eagles a slim lead.

Winning two close games give the Eagles a perfect 3-0 record heading into Tuesday matchup against rival Sturgeon Bay. Other Packerland Conference baseball games scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. Tuesday include Algoma traveling to Kewaunee, Sevastopol battling at Oconto, and Gibraltar playing at Peshtigo. Luxemburg-Casco will host a doubleheader against Fox Valley Lutheran at 4 p.m.

Bucks win playoff opener

The Milwaukee Bucks beat the Detroit Pistons 121-86 in game one of the playoffs. The Fiserv Forum was absolutely packed as it was the first playoff game ever hosted inside the building. The crowd was electric from start to finish. It's going to be really tough to beat this team at home during the playoffs. 
 
The Bucks got out to a 38-18 lead after the first quarter. It was finished off by a standing ovation from the crowd to show their appreciation. Giannis led the way with 11 points and six rebounds. Brook Lopez also chipped in ten points to help give Milwaukee a big lead. 
 
It was all Bucks again in the second quarter. They kept their foot on the pedal as they were trying to make a statement in game one. Milwaukee would close out the half 69-43. Giannis led the way with a double-double in the first half. Brook Lopez had 14 of his own. 
 
In the second half, Milwaukee really ran away with it. The Pistons didn't stand a chance. It wasn't even a contest as the Bucks hovered around a 40 point lead for the majority of the time. They would win easily. Giannis finished up with 27 points and 14 rebounds in only 24 minutes. 
 
Milwaukee will now rest up before taking on the Pistons in game two on Wednesday. They will be back at the Fiserv Forum before playing games three and four in Detroit. Tip-off will be at 7 o’clock.

The Milwaukee Brewers faced the Los Angeles Dodgers and lost 7-1 on Sunday afternoon. Jhoulys Chacin started on the bump for Milwaukee and had a tough go at it. He went a little over two innings giving up six earned runs on the night. The Brewers were never able to rally back from the deficit in the game. 
 
Ross Stripling made it tough on the Brewers lineup. He went eight efficient innings only giving up one earned run in the game. The team only mustered up four hits on the afternoon.

Brewers get a little revenge on the Dodgers

The Brewers played their fourth straight game in Southern California and finally got a victory on Friday.

Grandal played the last four seasons for the Dodgers before signing with the Brewers this past offseason.

 

Corbin Burnes started on the mound for the Brewers and he struggled, allowing 5 runs in just 4 1/3 innings. The bullpen cleaned things up and pitched 4 2/3 scoreless innings. Matt Albers was the first replacement for Burnes and he picked up the win. 

 

The Brewers continue their series in Los Angeles Saturday night at 8:10 PM.

Bucks close out special season

The Milwaukee Bucks played host to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night and lost 127-116. Finishing first in the NBA with a record of 60-22. Heading into the matchup they were planning to be without Giannis and a couple of other key pieces due to rest before the playoffs. Aaron Rodgers was sitting court-side to cheer on his team for the game. He is a minority owner of the Bucks. 

 

Milwaukee got off to a hot start even though they had a good majority of their team out. After the first quarter, they were out ahead of the Thunder 31-29. DJ Wilson got to it right away scoring nine points to lead the way for the Bucks. Tim Frazier also pitched in nine points and five assists of his own. 

 

It was a different story in the second quarter as the Thunder came out and took the lead back. Dennis Schroder would finish up with 15 points at halftime for the Thunder. The Bucks focused heavily on getting some of the deeper bench players some minutes since they already wrapped up home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. 

 

It was all Thunder in the second half. Dennis Schroder was the high scorer in the game with 32 points for Oklahoma City. Tim Frazier had a career-high 29 points and 13 assists in the loss for the Bucks. Khris Middleton added 21 on the night. 

 

The Bucks will now rest up a couple of days before beginning round one of the playoffs Sunday. They will be matched up against the Detroit Pistons. Milwaukee is poised to make a deep run in the playoffs this year. They will kick off game one and two at the Fiserv Forum.

Brewers swept by Angels

The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the Los Angeles Angles 4-2 Wednesday night. Brandon Woodruff started on the bump for Milwaukee and went six innings giving up four earned runs with seven strikeouts. The bullpen would hold the Angels scoreless the rest of the way but Milwaukee wasn't able to get back into it. 

 

Christian Yelich stayed hot at the plate with two RBI singles in the game. He has been a constant in the Brewer lineup all season long. Lorenzo Cain also added two hits of his own on the night. The rest of the lineup was a combined 3-23 from the plate. The loss would push their record to 8-5. 

 

Milwaukee will have another tough series against the other LA team starting on Friday. The Dodgers will welcome the Brewers in for a rematch of the NLCS last season. Corbin Burnes will have his name called in the rotation for Milwaukee. He will square off against Julio Urias. First pitch will be thrown out at 9:10 from Dodger stadium.

SBHS Students Gain Experience Through Hands on ATA Program

Not all high school students are athletes, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be involved in athletics.  The Athletic Training Aide (ATA) program at Sturgeon Bay High School allows students to be actively involved in athletics from a different angle. 

 

The ATA program started three years ago during the 2016-2017 school year.  The program allows high school students to learn basic sports medicine skills and assist in after school coverage of the athletic training room as well as coverage of home sporting events with a certified athletic trainer.  The program is designed as a Varsity lettering program.  Students must complete at least 120 hours of after school and event coverage with a certified athletic trainer as well as complete assigned learning modules to qualify for the Varsity letter. 

 

Students are able to participate in the program year round or just during specific sporting seasons (Fall, Winter, or Spring) depending on their availability and participation in other extra-curricular activities.  All students who participate in the ATA program are CPR/AED/First Aid certified and also learn a lot of practical sports medicine skills like how to handle emergencies when it comes to asthma, allergic reactions, splinting of fractures or dislocations, and taping of common sports injuries to name a few.

 

During its first year, the program only had two students but has grown and currently has eight students who participate throughout the year.  Most of the ATA students want to pursue some sort of degree in medicine in the future and see the program as a great opportunity to gain knowledge and experience.  However, some students are just looking for a way to get involved with peers in high school and see the program as a fun way to be involved. 

Max McHugh becomes All-American as a freshman

2018 Sevastopol graduate Max McHugh became the first ever collegiate freshman to earn NCAA  All-American status from Door County. Competing in Austin, Texas, McHugh first swam the 100 breaststroke and swam a 50.30 in the qualifier. Then in the finals swam 50.52 and placed third in the nation in the 100 breaststroke.

Then on the final day of the NCAA Championships Max was seeded eighth the 200 breaststroke and swam a time of 1:51.36 in prelims. Seeded third in the finals, McHugh swam a 1:49.41. His time was good enough for second place in the country.

To be an All-American in NCAA swimming you must finish in the top eight at the NCAA Championships. So in the 2019 Championships, not only did Max McHugh become the first ever Door County graduate to become All-American as a freshman, he did it twice in the 100 and 200 breaststrokes.

His time in the 100 breaststroke was the fourth fastest time in the event in United States history. In the 200 breaststroke, McHugh swam the sixth fastest time ever recorded in U.S. history.

Next up for Max and his older brother Conner will be the Olympic Trials in the summer of 2020 with an eye on the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo. The United States can only take two breaststorkers in each event.

Brewers drop game two in LA 

The Milwaukee Brewers lost 11-8 against the Los Angeles Angels. It was another episode of a slugfest as both teams put up runs easily. The Brewers rallied back from being six runs down at one point but eventually fell short. 

 

Freddy Peralta drew the start for Milwaukee. He was roughed up in the first inning. He would give up six earned runs in the bottom of the first. Seven total by the time he was taken out in the fourth. 

 

Yasmani Grandal had a monster night at the plate. He had two homers in the game to go along with three RBI and three runs. It was his first breakout game since being signed. That wouldn’t be enough as the Angels would rally late to put them away. 

 

The two teams will now run it back for the third and final matchup in the series. Brandon Woodruff will be taking the mound for Milwaukee. They have now dropped two in a row to start out the road trip. The Brewers will face Felix Pena for LA. First pitch will be thrown out at 9:07 from Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

Brewers drop game one in LA 

The Milwaukee Brewers lost 5-2 against the Los Angeles Angels. It was the opening game of a week full of matchups against the LA teams. Jhoulys Chacin started on the bump for Milwaukee and faced off against Trevor Cahill of the Angels. 

 

Chacin hummed in this start. He went a little over six innings only giving up three earned runs. It was a quality start produced by the Milwaukee hurler, but he would still wind up with a loss. Run support was hard for him to find in this one. 

 

Orlando Arcia got things going in the second with an RBI single to give the Brewers a lead early on. Mike Moustakas would go deep to center field in the fourth inning to account for the other run. Mike Trout robbed Christian Yelich of a homer in the game. One MVP robbing another MVP. 

 

The Brewers just had a tough time getting enough runs across and eventually fell in LA. They will now run it back for another game on Tuesday. Freddy Peralta will be taking the mound for Milwaukee.

Baseball round-up: Sturgeon Bay suspended, Kewaunee loses

The wrong kind of storm won games throughout northeast Wisconsin Monday as Sturgeon Bay saw their game called after three innings.

 

The Clippers saw a 2-0 lead vanish thanks to a string of singles in the third inning by NEW Lutheran. The Blazers eventually took a 3-2 lead before the game was suspended due to lightning in the area.

 

The Kewaunee Storm did not fare much better, losing to Oconto 7-3 despite two hits from Daniel Stangel.

Bucks earn win #60 on the season

The Milwaukee Bucks last 60-win season came in 1981. The 2018-19 Bucks could hit 61-wins if they can finish out the season Wednesday night with a victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

 

On Sunday, Milwaukee took care of business against the Atlanta Hawks 115-107. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way with 30 points and nine rebounds while getting more rest than usual. Khris Middleton added 21 points, Sterling Brown scored ten as did D.J. Wilson in the Bucks victory.

Brewers win third straight series

The Milwaukee Brewers squared off and beat the Chicago Cubs 4-2 on Sunday afternoon. Zach Davies started on the bump for Milwaukee and faced off against Kyle Hendricks of the Cubs. Miller Park was packed once again for this I-94 rivalry. 

 

The Brewers wasted no time getting runs on the board in the bottom of the first inning. Lorenzo Cain started it off with a single to leadoff the inning. Then, Christian Yelich came up to the plate and launched a two-run bomb to right field. It was his 100th of his career and his fifth on the early season. That would put Milwaukee up 2-0 early on in the game. 

 

The Brewers added to that lead with an RBI single from Travis Shaw in the bottom of the third inning. Christian Yelich would drive in a run as well with a sac fly right after. That would put Milwaukee comfortably ahead with a 4-0 lead heading into the top of the fifth inning. 

 

Zach Davies was in control on the mound all day against the Cubs lineup. He went nearly six innings strong only giving up two unearned runs on his start. He would hand the ball over to the bullpen with a 4-2 lead. From there, Alex Claudio came in and got an out in the seventh before getting into trouble. Josh Hader was summoned from the bullpen early to come on and clean up a one-out mess. He would get a pop out and a strikeout to bail the Brewers out.

 

He continued on to close out the eighth and ninth innings to secure the win for Milwaukee. He picked up his fifth save of the season in dominant fashion. 

 

Milwaukee will now get on a plane and travel to Los Angeles to start a series on Monday against the Angels. Jhoulys Chacin will take the mound for the Brewers as he will square off against Trevor Cahill. "The Crew" will look to carry their momentum into this next week where they will be squaring off against both LA teams on the road.

The Spartans next match will be on Tuesday at Ashwaubenon at 6:30 PM. Sturgeon Bay will play at Freedom on Tuesday at 4:30 PM. 

Brewers lose to Cubs in another slugfest

The Brewers six-game winning streak and the Cubs six-game losing streak both ended on Friday night at Miller Park. A night after 23 total runs were scored in a Brewers win, there were 22 combined runs in a Cubs victory. The final score was 14-8. Lorenzo Cain led off the game in the bottom of the first with a home run. He would later double in a run as well.

 

However, the major star of the night was the Cubs Jason Heyward who went 3-3 with two homers, two walks and two stolen bases.

 

Ryan Braun did his best to keep the Brewers in the game with a three-run shot in the seventh to cut the Cubs lead to 7-5. The Cubs then put the game away in the very next half-inning by putting up seven on the board.

 

Eric Thames would add a three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth to cap the scoring.

 

Brewers starting pitcher Corbin Burnes struggled in five innings of work allowing seven runs. He was the losing pitcher. Alex Wilson came in the game in the 8th and only recorded one out and allowed six earned runs. Cole Hamels started for the Cubs and was the winning pitcher going six innings and allowing only two runs.

 

The two division rivals will play the rubber match of the series on Sunday afternoon at 1:10.

Short handed Bucks lose to Nets

The Milwaukee Bucks lost to the Brooklyn Nets 133-128 Saturday night. They were without Giannis Antetokounmpo who was sidelined with a left calf injury. Fiserv Forum was packed and the game definitely had a playoff feeling to it.

 

Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton shouldered most of the weight with Giannis being out. Eric Bledsoe went for a career-high 33 points to go along with 11 assists. Middleton chipped in 24 points of his own. D’angelo Russell scored 25 points and dished out 10 assists to lead the way for the Nets.

 

The Bucks pulled together a fourth quarter comeback to put them up a point inside the final two minutes. Missed free throws by Milwaukee eventually cost them down the stretch and allowed Brooklyn to escape with the win.

 

The team will rest up before playing another game at Fiserv Forum Sunday. They will welcome in the Atlanta Hawks. The Bucks are still searching for their 60th win on the season with two games to go. Tip-off will be at 6:00.

Gibraltar track and field picks up some points in Neenah

Brewers outslug the Cubs

It seemed defense and pitching were not required in Milwaukee Friday night as the Brewers defeated the Cubs 13-10. Ryan Braun, Eric Thames, Hernan Perez, Yasmani Grandal and Orlando Arcia all hit home runs for the Brewers. Chase Anderson came out of relief to pick up the win. Milwaukee has now won six games in a row and is 7-1 on the season. They'll take on the Cubs again on Saturday night at Miller Park, first pitch at 6:10.

Sturgeon Bay Boys Little League tryouts

Tryouts for the Major Leagues will be held from 5:00-6:30 on April 23 at Sunset Park (weather permitting). One change this year is that all 11 and 12 year-olds will be playing in the Majors. Therefore, any players in that age group who have not played in the Majors must try out. Coaches will use their notes from tryouts to create teams as fairly as possible.

 

10 year-olds who would like to try out can do so. There is no guarantee they will be drafted into the Majors, but they are welcome to try.

 

Players should report to tryouts at the following times:

 

10 year-olds (optional): 5:00-5:30
11 year-olds: 5:30-6:00
12 year-olds: 6:00-6:30

Bucks clinch best record in NBA

The Milwaukee Bucks beat the Philadelphia 76ers 128-122 Thursday night. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way with a monster night. He had 45 points to go along with 13 rebounds. It was another vintage MVP performance this season. 

 

Eric Bledsoe got ejected from the game right away after Joel Embiid threw a ball at him and he retaliated. He rifled the ball back at him and got thrown out of the game early on. That would provide a spark for the Bucks all night in a heated matchup. 

 

Milwaukee would hold on and close out the fourth quarter to clinch home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. They are now one win away from hitting 60 wins on the season. All led behind the best player in the league, Giannis. 

 

The Bucks will now have a day off before they go for their 60th win against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday. Tip-off will be at 4:00. Door County Daily News will be down for the coverage. 

Track Round-Up: Kewaunee boys win Denmark meet

DoorCountyDailyNews.com Brewers Reporter Brett Kinnard's report:

 

 

 

The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 Tuesday night. Jhoulys Chacin started on the bump for Milwaukee only giving up two earned runs in a little over five innings. He would earn the win with that effort. 

 

The Brewers would get on the board first with a Jesus Aguilar RBI single in the top of the third. Orlando Arcia provided all the pop in this game. He hit a three-run bomb in the top of the sixth inning to put Milwaukee up 4-1. It was his first hit of the season. 

 

The Reds would plate two runs before the ninth inning to summon Josh Hader on to close it out. He would strike out two and pick up his fourth save in six games. The Brewers move to 5-1 early on in the season. 

 

The two teams will now run it back for game three of the series tomorrow. Milwaukee will trot out Freddy Peralta to try and help the team complete the sweep. First pitch will be thrown out at 11:35 from the Great American Ball Park. 

Cohen III hits game-winner in OT

Texas Southern took the lead on a putback layup by Jeremy Combs with eight seconds left. UW-Green Bay called a timeout and called a play for Cohen who came down the floor to hit a foul line jumper with 1.5 seconds left. Texas Southern's heave did not hit the rim.

Cohen tied with Texas Southern's Tyrik Armstrong for a game-high 23 points. 

 

The Phoenix will travel to Marshall on Thursday in the championship game of the CIT, tip-off at 6 PM.

Brewers win in late game heroics

The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 Monday night at the Great American Ball Park. Zach Davies drew his turn in the rotation as he faced off against Tanner Roark for the Reds. It was a cold matchup that winded up keeping a lot of balls from going out. 

 

The Brewers got right after it in the first inning when Jesus Aguilar drove in two runs on a double to open up the scoring. Mike Moustakas would continue his hot start to the season by adding an RBI double as well. Milwaukee would push their lead out to 3-0 early on after the first inning. 

 

Zach Davies had an efficient day on the mound against the Reds. He went five innings strong only allowing two runs to come across in the fifth. Cincinnati plated another run in the seventh off of Alex Claudio to knot the game up 3-3. 

 

It was late-game excitement again for Milwaukee in this one. In the top of the ninth with two outs, Christian Yelich ripped a double to left field. Ryan Braun stepped in next and ripped a double down the left field line to score Yelich and give the Brewers the lead. Josh Hader would trot in to close out the bottom of the ninth and earn his third save of the season. 

 

The two teams will now run it back tomorrow for the second game of the series. Jhoulys Chacin will take the bump to face off against Anthony DeSclafani of the Reds. First pitch will be thrown out at 5:40 from the Great American Ball Park. Milwaukee is now 4-1 early on in the season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 28 points and secured 11 rebounds for the Bucks in his return to the lineup after being injured. Eric Bledsoe chipped in 29 points of his own as he really set the tone in the first half. 

 

Reserve guard George Hill came off the bench and provided a spark for the team as he scored 22 points in the contest. The Nets cut the lead down to four halfway through the fourth before the Bucks went on a 7-0 run to help eventually close out the game. 

 

Milwaukee will now have a couple of days of rest before they travel to Philadelphia for their matchup with the 76ers Thursday night. The Bucks are now closing in on the best overall record in the NBA and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.

Sturgeon Bay baseball plays rare weekday morning game

It reads like an April Fool's joke, but the Sturgeon Bay Clippers do in fact have a baseball game Monday morning in Green Bay. 

 

The Clippers and the Marinette Marines will sail down to Green Bay NEW Lutheran for a 10 a.m. tilt. NEW Lutheran may have one of the drier fields in the area after the Southern Door Eagles saw their baseball and softball games moved to the home of the Blazers instead of being hosted in Brussels. 

 
Both teams will have quick turnarounds as the Marines are scheduled to host Luxemburg-Casco and Clippers head to Kewaunee for Tuesday afternoon games. 

Yelich hits walk-off in Brewers win

The Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 in walk-off fashion Sunday afternoon. Corbin Burnes drew his turn in the rotation as he faced off against Michael Wacha for the Cardinals. The roof was closed again and the fans were cozy inside for this matchup. 
 
Christian Yelich continued his insanely hot start to the season with another bomb to right field in the first inning. He is the sixth player in MLB history to hit a homer in each of the teams first four games. That would give Milwaukee a 1-0 lead after the first inning. 
 
Corbin Burnes came out of the gate humming. Through his first three innings, Burnes struck out nine Cardinal batters. Pretty impressive for his first MLB start. Some minor hiccups came in the fourth and fifth inning when he allowed a two-run bomb to Paul DeJong. Then back to back solo shots from Matt Carpenter and Paul Goldschmidt would put the Cardinals up 4-1. 
 
The Brewers started to rally back in the seventh inning though. Ryan Braun singled in a run to start off the comeback. Travis Shaw would follow that up with an RBI single of his own to get the score to 4-3. The dramatics came in the ninth when Christian Yelich hit a walk-off double to left center that scored Lorenzo Cain and Ben Gamel. Yelich is doing all-time great things at the plate so far this year.
 
It was a fitting way to end an exciting opening series that the Brewers took three out of four games. Milwaukee will now travel to Cincinnati to begin a series with the Reds Monday. Zach Davies will be next up in the rotation for the Brewers. He will be going against Anthony DeSclafani for Cincinnati. First pitch will be thrown out at 5:40 from the Great American Ball Park.
