Brewers start off home-stand with a win

The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Colorado Rockies 5-1 Monday night. Zach Davies started on the bump and kept on rolling like he’s been all season. He went a little over five innings not allowing a single run to set the tone for the night. 

 

Jesus Aguilar finally broke out of his early-season slump. He would launch two bombs in the game to give Milwaukee all the run support they would need. Christian Yelich sat out with a back injury. He is expected to be monitored the next couple of days before returning. 

 

The Brewers are just starting a 10 game homestand at Miller Park. The two teams will run it back on Tuesday for game two. Jhoulys Chacin will take the mound for Milwaukee. First pitch will be thrown out at 6:40. 

New era begins at Luxemburg Speedway

For the first time in three years, drivers at the Luxemburg Speedway will be working with a new promoter beginning this Friday. Ashley Stevens and Skyhigh Entertainment signed a contract to run the facility for auto racing with the county back in January. While he is new to promoting racing, he has been around the sport nearly his entire life as he grew up with the 141 Speedway near his family’s farm. Stevens has spent the last couple weeks getting the track ready for what he hopes is a full season of action. He says they are focusing on making everything family friendly.

The first night of racing at the Luxemburg Speedway slated for this season is May 3rd.

Packers make roster moves

The Green Bay Packers have released guard Nico Siragusa and safety Jason Thompson. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transactions Monday.

 

Siragusa was signed off of the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad to Green Bay’s active roster on Dec. 12, 2018, and was inactive for the final three games of the season.

 

Thompson spent the final four weeks of the 2018 regular season on the Packers’ practice squad.


Brewers fall short in series finale 

The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the New York Mets 5-2 Sunday afternoon. Gio Gonzalez started on the mound for the Brewers. He spent last season with the team and was just recently signed to add more pitching depth. Gonzales went five innings only giving up two earned runs in his first outing back. 

 

Mike Moustakas hit a two-run bomb in the seventh inning to tie the game up. Aside from that, Milwaukee had a tough time getting hits across from the rest of the lineup. Jacob Barnes would come on and allow two earned runs in the seventh and the game would slip out of reach from there. 

 

Milwaukee will now travel back home to start a series with the Rockies. Their record now sits at 15-14. Zach Davies is scheduled to take the mound Monday. First pitch will be thrown out at 6:40 from Miller Park. 

Game one - A Greek tragedy 

The Milwaukee Bucks lost to the Boston Celtics 112-90 in game one of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. After a long rest period from the last round, the Bucks came out a little sluggish. They would finish up the first quarter down 26-17 with not a lot of answers on the offensive end. 

 

It was an uphill battle all game as shots weren’t falling for Milwaukee. At points, you felt like the team was going to make a run similar to how they did all season. Nothing ever came to fruition. Giannis finished up the game with 22 points shooting 7 for 21 from the floor. Middleton chipped in 16 of his own. Milwaukee will need to find ways to free him up in game two and he needs to trust his teammates to make shots. 

 

The Bucks will now rest up before they play game two on Tuesday. Look for coach Bud to make the adjustments. Game two is now a must win for Milwaukee. Tip-off will be at 7:00 from the Fiserv Forum.

Packers wrap up with 2019 NFL Draft

The Packers opened up the third and final day of the 2019 NFL Draft with the 12th pick of the fifth round. They were one of the final teams in the NFL to make a Day 3 selection as Green Bay sent both of their fourth-round picks to Seattle to move up n the first round.

 

Green Bay drafted Kingsley Keke, a senior defensive tackle from Texas A&M. Keke tallied seven sacks in the SEC last season alone. The pick brings in another big body to the defensive lineman at 6’2” and 293 pounds.  The pick marked the second player the Packers drafted with their first four picks addressing the front-seven on the defense.

 

General Manager Brian Gutekunst added another member of the secondary with their first pick of the sixth round (#185). Ka'dar Hollman went from a walk-on at Toledo to the leader in the MAC with 12 breakups as a senior for the Rockets. At 6'0" and 190 pounds, Hollman ran the 40 in 4.34 seconds. Similar to the Packers' first-round selection Darnell Savage Jr., Hollman too has blazing speed.

 

The Packers then were back on the clock nine picks later. The offense got a boost with the selection of Notre Dame running back Dexter Williams. He led the Irish with 941 yards rushing with 12 touchdowns. Dexter "Juice" Williams stands 5'11" tall and 212 pounds and is known for a great burst. He will join Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams in the running back stable in Green Bay next season.

 

Green Bay's final selection in the draft was TCU inside linebacker Ty Summers. It was the fifth defensive selection our of Green Bay's eight picks. Summers was a two-time All Big 12 honorable mention selection. 

Brewers pound the Mets

The Brewers put a beating on the New York Mets on Friday night with a 10-2 victory in the Big Apple. It was a barrage of hits for Milwaukee as they didn't even hit a home run in the ballgame. They did all their damage in just three innings including putting up 5 runs in the 3rd and 4 runs in 5th. Lorenzo Cain went 2-5 with 2 runs scored and 3 RBI's. Matt Albers pitched 1 1/3 innings to get the win in relief.

Sturgeon Bay and Sevastopol compete on the track

Both Sturgeon and Sevastopol were a part of a big field at St. Norbert College in a track and field meet on Friday. Both the boys and girls teams were there. Fifteen schools were participating in the meet.

 

The Sturgeon Bay boys came in ninth place with 35 team points. Sevastopol's boys finished 14th with 13 points.

 

The girls for both schools finished much better especially Sevastopol. The Pioneers came in fourth with 59.5 points. While the Clippers finished eighth with 34.

Luxemburg-Casco hosts first soccer game under the lights

In a historic night at Luxemburg-Casco, the Spartans made it extra special by winning in convincing fashion over Marinette. It was the first time L-C had played a home soccer game under the lights and they celebrated by winning 6-0. Brynn Holzwarth scored a hat trick and one assist.  Alexa Geniesse, Lauren Duey and Heather Iverson also scored goals for the Spartans. Natalie Haen picked up another shutout by making three saves.

Southern Door softball picks up non-conference victory

Kylie Neinas had 2 hits and 2 RBIs to lead Southern Door past Two Rivers on Friday on their home field. The final score was 6-3. Grace LeGrave scored 3 runs and pitched the final two innings to pick up the save.

 

Kewaunee edges Sturgeon Bay baseball

Kewaunee scored 5 runs in the 2nd inning and knocked off Sturgeon Bay 6-5 on the road Friday night. The Storm added a much-needed insurance run in the top of the seventh as Sturgeon Bay also scored a run to get within one in the seventh. But that was all the Clippers could muster and Kewaunee held on for the victory.

 

Wyatt Kruse had 3 RBI's for Kewaunee. He also pitched the last three innings of the game. Sturgeon Bay got three hits from Max Bordeau. Jake Schneider started on the mound for the Clippers.

Night 2 of NFL Draft has Packers on the offensive

The Green Bay Packers addressed depth at the offensive line and tight end positions with their second and third round draft picks Friday night. Night two of the NFL Draft saw Green Bay back on the clock with the 12th overall pick in the second round.

 

Elgton Jenkins was the Packers second-round selection. The Mississippi State center has versatility Green Bay desires. It was said that Jenkins could play any position along the entire offensive line. That may be a stretch but he will certainly give Green Bay stability and center and both guard positions. Jenkins stands 6'4" and weighs in at 310 pounds. 

 

With their lone third-round selection, the Packers selected a tight end at #75 overall. It is the highest the team has taken a tight end since Bubba Franks back in 2000. Jace Sternberger is someone Packers General Manager believes will be a matchup problem down the field.

 

Sternberger wore #81 at Texas A&M. The number is currently worn by Geronimo Allison. Sternberger is 6'4" and 251 pounds. 

L-C baseball loses another heartbreaker to Freedom 2-1

Thursday's game against Freedom was a heart breaker for the Luxemburg Casco Spartans, as they lost the lead late in a 2-1 defeat. The game was tied at one with Freedom batting in the bottom of the fourth when Freedom was able to single on a 0-2 count, scoring one run. The pitching was strong on both sides. Freedom's starter struck out nine, while Senior Captain Noah Lindsley was flawless through his first 3 frames. LC got things started in the first inning with a lead off single by Senior Captain Anthony Otradovec, who then stole and was knocked to third when Senior Captain Lance Tebon hit a deep fly to left that was mishandled by the fielder. With 2nd & 3rd and nobody out, LC was poised to have a big inning. A passed ball on the catcher allowed Otradovec to score one run for the Luxemburg-Casco Spartans. Tebon was then left stranded on third, LC would not cross the plate for the remainder of the contest. Noah Lindsley took the loss for LC, he surrendered two runs on three hits over four innings, walking one. Anthony Otradovec went 1-for-2 at the plate to lead the offense. The loss is LC's third in a row bringing them to an overall .500 record at 5-5. 
Still in the think of the conference race LC travels to Oconto Falls today Friday, April 26th for a Doubleheader with first pitch slated at 3:30. 

Milwaukee Bucks round two playoff preview

The Milwaukee Bucks will open up their second-round Eastern Conference Playoff series with the Boston Celtics Sunday at noon from Fiserv Forum. These two teams went to seven games in the opening round of the playoffs last year with the Celtics winning the deciding game in 2018. 

 

The Bucks are a much different team in 2019. The #1 overall seed in the NBA will be home again Tuesday, April 30 for game two. The series moves to Boston Friday, May 5th and Monday, May 6th. 

Game five would swing back to Milwaukee on Wednesday, May 8th. Game six is scheduled for Boston on Friday, May 10th. A closeout game seven would be at Fiserv on Monday, May 13th.

Hat trick leads Clippers soccer to victory over Kewaunee

For the second game in a row, the Sturgeon Bay Clippers played in the rain, but tonight's game lasted the full 90 minutes and it was a solid conference win.  On a rain-soaked field, Captain Madison Starr scored in the first minute and finished the half with a hat trick.  Senior Captain Anna Fischer completed scoring for Sturgeon Bay with a quick goal in the second half.  Keeper McKenna Gibson had one save in goal for the Clippers.  "This was a nice win for our team.  Kewaunee has a young team this year and their coaches are working their magic.  SB midfielders, Captain Claire Tellstrom, and Gracen Spritka, worked tirelessly in terrible conditions to build our attack. In the mud and rain, they directed Sturgeon Bay's offense.  Center backs Caitlyn Smith and Captain Georgia Feldman turned away any ball getting into their third of the field.  Consequently, we were able to give our younger players some good minutes tonight.  Defender Ella "The Destroyer" Pinkert vowed there would be no goals on her side of the field and she proved correct as the defense played a solid game. " Next, Sturgeon Bay travels to Elkhart Lake Glenbulah for a road game on Monday."

Kewaunee softball cruises past Peshtigo

Taylor Schleis, Cierra Brann,  and Elizabeth Rohr did the heavy lifting for Kewaunee as they beat Peshtigo 9-3 in Packerland softball action. Schleis was 3-for-3 at the plate while Brann and Rohr drove in a combined seven of the team's nine runs. It turned out to be an efficient night for the offense as they were able to score their nine runs on just six hits. Hailey Gaedtke took the win for the Storm, allowing three runs over five innings.  

 

Softball action Friday includes Southern Door hosting Two Rivers and Kewaunee traveling to Sturgeon Bay. 

 

 

Packers stay defensive with two first round picks

The Green Bay Packers had two picks entering the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft Thursday night. General Manager Brian Gutekunst took Michigan defensive end Rashan Gary with the first pick (#12). 

One of the biggest surprise picks of all of the first-round, Gary was not on many if any first-round mock drafts. When Gary received the call, cameras showed the two-time All Big Ten selection, tears flowed at a rapid pace.

 

Gary registered just nine sacks and 18 tackles over the past two seasons. His speed may be the most exciting attribute. The 6'5", 278-pounder ran a blazing fast 4.58-second 40-yard dash.

 

 

Green Bay hit the phones after the pick and dealt their two fourth-round picks (#114 & #118) to move from #30 in the first-round to #21. The Packers traded with Seattle. They targeted Maryland safety Darnell Savage. At nearly 5'11" and 198 pounds, he registered 181 tackles and eight interceptions in his collegiate career. 

 

Savage will likely be worked in as a safety in the Packers system. The "ball hawk" had four interceptions during his senior season with 52 tackles. 

 

 

Green Bay will have pick #44 overall tonight with their second-round selection.

 

Algoma baseball inks lone area win

Algoma's baseball team got the lone win out of a rain-soaked afternoon for the area.

 

The Wolves used an early lead to hold off Sevastopol 4-2 thanks to RBI hits by Noah Lukes and Mitchel Zimmer.

 

Peshtigo's Brody Heroux allowed just one hit in Kewaunee's 6-2 loss to the Bulldogs.

 

Luxemburg-Casco also could only muster one hit in its 2-1 rain-shortened game against Freedom.

Brewers get swept by Cardinals 

The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 5-2 Wednesday afternoon. That would complete the series sweep for St. Louis. Jhoulys Chacin started on the bump for Milwaukee. He went four innings giving up four earned runs. Making it an uphill battle. 

 

Eric Thames was the lone bright spot in the lineup for the Brewers. He went 2x4 with a solo shot in the first inning. He has been swinging a hot bat lately. The rest of the team combined for three hits which will rarely get it done. 

 

Milwaukee will now have a day off Thursday to regroup. Their record now sits at 13-13. They begin a series with the Mets on Friday in New York. Chase Anderson will take the rock for the Brewers. First pitch will be thrown out at 6:10. 

Baseball preview: Neinas moving forward after no-hitter

Southern Door freshman pitcher Charlie Neinas knows there are plenty of starts ahead of him still after throwing a no-hitter earlier this month. The performance earned him Culver’s Door County Student-Athlete of the Week honors after the complete game shut-out in a 1-0 victory over Algoma on April 5th. A teammate had to tell him what was happening and his coach even had someone else warming up just in case. Neinas gives credit to his catcher that day, Devin Schinkten.

Neinas and the Southern Door Eagles hit the baseball diamond Thursday afternoon to face NEW Lutheran. Other baseball action in Door and Kewaunee Counties this afternoon include Kewaunee hosting Peshtigo, Algoma traveling to Baileys Harbor Town Park to play Sevastopol, Luxemburg-Casco heading to Freedom, and Gibraltar facing Oconto on the road.

Track preview: Kropuenske fighting back from injuries

Gibraltar senior thrower Ryan Kropuenske is hoping to put a host of injuries behind him during the final athletic season of his career. Last season, Kropuenske sat out with a broken foot before dealing with stress fractures in his back entering this year. He admits he has missed some lifting sessions and workouts dating back to when he was forced to watch the Gibraltar basketball team make its run to sectionals from the bench. After finishing in third place at the Door County Classic earlier this week in both shot put and discus, that does not mean his goals for his senior season are out of the question.

Kropuenske and the Gibraltar track team will join Southern Door, Sevastopol, and Luxemburg-Casco at an invitational hosted by Luxemburg-Casco at 3:45 p.m. Algoma, Sturgeon Bay and Kewaunee track teams head to a 14-team invitational at Oconto Falls with the first events beginning at 4 p.m.

L-C Baseball loses to Freedom 2-1

Luxemburg-Casco hosted Freedom in conference play under the lights last night at the Luxemburg-Casco Sports Complex. The Spartans looked on as Senior Captain and Ace Ian Doell continued his dominant senior campaign allowing 0 earned runs over his 5 innings of work. Over that span of time Doell retired 8 Freedom hitters via the strikeout while Freedom only scattered 3 hits over 5 frames. This pushes Doell to a 0.55 ERA over 25 innings of work this year. Freshman Owen Deprez came in as relief for the Spartans and allowed 1 unearned run and 1 earned run as Freedom took the lead in the top of the 6th 2-1. Deprez closed out the seventh frame with a 1,2,3 inning to get the bats to the home team for one final chance. Luxemburg-Casco couldn't muster anything in the bottom of the seventh as they also went down 1,2,3. The Spartans had very little to show offensively with only two hits and one run. Those lone hits came off the bats of Senior Captain OF Noah Lindsley and Junior 1B Dylan Dahlke. Dahlke was also responsible for the only RBI in the Spartans offense as he knocked in Senior Captain Lance Tebon home on a fielder's choice in the bottom of the first.

 

Luxemburg-Casco will travel to Freedom for Game 2 of the series on Thursday, April 25th with opening pitch slated for 4:30 PM.

Brewers lose hold on game two 

The Milwaukee Brewers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 on Tuesday night. Zach Davies started on the bump and had another efficient outing. Davies went nearly five innings only giving up two earned runs on the night. He would hand the ball over to the bullpen tied 2-2.

 

Travis Shaw seems to be shaking off his early-season slump. He hit two solo shots in the game. Orlando Arcia would account for the other run with a solo homer of his own in the fifth inning. The Brewers would just fall short in the final innings. 

 

The two teams will now run it back for game three of the series on Wednesday. Milwaukee will trot out Jhoulys Chacin to try and salvage a game from the series. First pitch will be thrown out at 12:15.

Bucks win first playoff series in 18 years 

The Milwaukee Bucks beat the Detroit Pistons 127-104 on Monday night. That would complete the first round sweep. Something that hasn’t been done by the Bucks in ages. It was their first playoff series win since Ray Allen was on the team in 2001.

Brewers roughed up by Cardinals

Despite getting blown out, the Brewers hit four homers in the game. In the ninth inning, Travis Shaw hit a bomb that hopefully got him out of his slump. He has had a relatively slow start to the season. Milwaukee would fall to 13-11 after the loss.

Softball recap: Southern Door wins nailbiter, Algoma's offense explodes

There was plenty of offense to be seen in local softball games Monday night.

 

After giving up the lead on a grand slam, the Southern Door Eagles came all the way back and won on a Grace LeGrave RBI single in Southern Door's thrilling 6-5 victory over Oconto.

 

The Algoma Wolves took the drama out of its game early thanks to a seven-run fourth inning in a 15-0 drubbing of NEW Lutheran.

 

It was the opposite story for Sturgeon Bay, which saw a six-run fifth inning deal a fatal blow in its 10-0 loss to Peshtigo. 

 

Luxemburg-Casco's Allison Dart threw six innings and struck out four, but a sixth inning single given up to Denmark’s Abby Maricque broke a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the sixth in the 5-4 Spartans defeat.

Bellinger steals win from Brewers in Dodgers series finale

The Milwaukee Brewers played host to the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday afternoon and lost 6-5. For the first time this year, the roof was open and the sun was shining down for the game. It was a fairly big crowd on hand for the contest that took place on Easter Sunday. 

 

Los Angeles jumped out ahead in the first inning. In the first at-bat of the game, Joc Pederson took Brandon Woodruff deep to give them a 1-0 lead. After a Corey Seager double, Cody Bellinger would slap a hit to left field to score him. Milwaukee wouldn't answer back in the bottom half of the inning so the score would hold at 2-0. 

 

The Dodgers would tack on two more runs in the second inning as Woodruff was having a tough time with the top of their order. Corey Seager hit another double that would score a run. Followed by another Cody Bellinger single to drive him in. That would leave Milwaukee trailing 4-0 after two innings.

 

The Brewers would storm back to make it a game though. Lorenzo Cain hit a two-run shot in the fifth inning. Then, Eric Thames hit a three-run bomb to center in the eighth inning. It wouldn’t be enough as Cody Bellinger hit a solo shot in the ninth to put Milwaukee away. 

 

The Brewers will now travel to St. Louis to begin a series with the Cardinals. It will be the two teams third series of the early season. Adrian Houser will take the mound for Milwaukee. First pitch will be thrown out at 6:45 Monday night. 

Yelich hits two more home runs as Brewers shutout Dodgers

Christian Yelich continued to crush the baseball on Saturday night at Miller Park and he got some help from Ryan Braun and the pitching staff. Yelich hit two more home runs, both off of Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu. He now has a league-leading 13 homers which is three more than the next closest sluggers. Yelich's two solo home runs and Ryan Braun's three-run bomb provided all the scoring for the Brewers.

 

Chase Anderson pitched five scoreless innings to get the win and the bullpen threw four more shutout innings to hold the 5-0 victory for Milwaukee. The staff only allowed two hits the whole game.

 

The Brewers will try to force a split of the four-game series on Sunday afternoon at Miller Park, first pitch at 1:10 PM. Clayton Kershaw will pitch for the Dodgers against Brandon Woodruff for Milwaukee.

Bucks on the verge of the Eastern semis

Playing their first road playoff game wasn't much of a deterrent for the Bucks as they beat the Pistons 119-103 Saturday night in game 3 of their first-round playoff series. Seven Bucks scored in double figures with Giannis Antetokounmpo leading the way with 20 points. Brook Lopez and Eric Bledsoe each had 19. Blake Griffin played his first game of the series and led all scorers with 27. He had been nursing a sore left knee.

 

Milwaukee now leads the series three games to none and just need one more win to move on to the Eastern Conference Semifinals. The Bucks will go for the sweep Monday night in Detroit with the tip-off at 7 PM.

What does Wrestling and the Wrestling Family mean to you?

What does Wrestling and the Wrestling Family mean to you?
 
“Wrestling is the only sport that instills ultimate respect for every single person within it. The ability to single-handedly overcome and physically outdo another athlete is like no other feeling in the world. It creates a concept of values and beliefs into a wrestling family and teaches camaraderie. The wins are the best wins and the loses are the worst losses you will have in your life, because it directly relates to you as an individual, overcoming factors that can benefit or harm your well-being. There is nothing like it.” Mitchell Overbeck
 
 “Wrestling becomes a way of life. From eating habits, exercise and workouts, to self-discipline and it doesn’t stop when the season is done. It’s not just about getting your arm raised on the mat, but overcoming hurdles, fears, and insecurities. Building confidence and camaraderie with other wrestlers and that only other wrestlers understand, like an unwritten code. Every wrestler knows the heartache of losing and leaving their pride on the mat, yet get up every day and work harder than the day before.” Tammy DeNamur
 
“Wrestling is a teacher of life. It reveals your strengths, weaknesses and brings you a sense of belonging” Tory Jandrin “Colin started later than most. For many- many years I had to sit and watch my son get thrown around by a lot of guys bigger than him. In the end it was worth it” Wendy Shubert
 
According to Merriam Webster the meaning of family is: the basic unit in society traditionally consisting of two parents rearing their children : a group of individuals living under one roof : a group of person of common ancestry : a group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation : lastly family could mean a group of things related by common characteristics.
 
When it comes to wrestling I think there is a bigger meaning behind the word family. So I asked members from the wrestling community to comment:
 
“To me the wrestling “family” is much bigger than the families and people we have traveled with to tournaments from our school or team. The wrestling family knows no district boundaries or specific season(s) or teammates. The family extends from those that competed to parents, siblings, coaches, and spectators. Anyone that knows the hard work and sacrifices put in by all involved develops a bond and appreciation that often lasts a lifetime.” Coach Jerry Englebert
 
 I have been around sports my whole life- from being a 3 sport athlete, collegiate athlete, and now a Licensed Athletic Trainer providing sports performance enhancement through EDGE 3D programming at DCMC. I have had my fair share of different “families”. But the family that has built some of the strongest bonds and has withstood the years is the wrestling family. “A bond that is deeper than a sport. It comes from sacrifice of yourself for all who enjoy the challenges of a demanding sport. Wrestling links you forever if you are the athlete, parent or community member. It’s things unsaid… and hard to put into words…forever a wrestling family.” Dawn Englebert  As a wrestling sister, I think part of the reason for this bond is the grueling all weekend bleacher butt that sets in when the wrestlers are young. “This family is formed through blood, sweat, and tears.” Tyler Wagner  Multi- youth tournament weekends, first through eighth grade. You really get to know the people that are in the stands yelling and cheering with or against you. “It instills dedication in families as well as wrestlers. Camaraderie and friendships are made, even with the competitors and their families. It is a mutual respect.” Dave Walker
 
You find yourself treating the other wrestlers and their siblings as your own, other people’s kids, as your own kids and other parents as your parents. “Wrestling families stick together through the best and worst times; everyone genuinely wants them to do well and are always there to help. Your child never needs to worry about having a partner or coach; someone is always there without being asked. These bonds are so strong and extend far beyond the mat.” Shannon LeFevre  “Everyone in the wrestling family makes everyone feel very welcome and like you’ve always been a part of the family.” Jen LeCloux

Sevastopol softball postponed

Sevastopol softball was scheduled to host a non-conference game against Stockbridge. It has been postponed to Monday, April 29th. Their next game is scheduled for Tuesday when they travel to Algoma. The first pitch will come at 5 PM.

Yelich homers again, but Brewers can't hold on

Christian Yelich homered for the 11th time in just in his 21st game this season but it wasn't enough to defeat the Dodgers on Friday night. The final score was 5-3. In the bottom of the first Lorenzo Cain led off with a single. Yelich drove Cain and himself home with a home run off Dodgers starter Ross Stripling.

 

The game was tied at 2 going to the 8th inning. The Brewers dominant reliever Josh Hader allowed two walks and then a three-run home run to Enrique Hernandez. Eric Thames added a solo home run in the bottom of the eighth but that was the last score of the game.

 

The Brewers have now lost the first two games at home to the Dodgers and three in a row overall. Chase Anderson will start on the mound for the Brewers on Saturday against Hyun-Jin Ryu for the Dodgers. First pitch is at 6:10 PM.

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.

 

Softball recap: Algoma, Southern Door win big

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.

Packers add John Kuhn as teams analyst

Packers alumnus John Kuhn has joined the team as sports analyst for the organization’s digital, broadcast and game presentation department, Gabrielle Dow, Packers vice president of marketing and fan engagement announced today.

 

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 close out special season

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.

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. He will face Matt Harvey for LA. First pitch will be thrown out at 9:07 from Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

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.

Softball round-up: L-C remains unbeaten

Luxemburg-Casco remains unbeaten on the young season for the area's lone softball win Monday.

 

In Waupaca, McKenzie Hanson, Ally Dart, Jenna Jorgensen, and Ali Routhieaux all collected two hits in a 9-0 Spartans win over the host Comets. The afternoon set was short a game and an inning thanks to lightning. 

 

Tehya Bertrand clubbed a three-run homer, but the Southern Door Eagles could not survive a 12-hit barrage by Seymour in an 8-4 loss in Brussels. Jessica Jacobson, Jackie Atkins and Bertrand all had two hits to lead the Eagles.

 

Kewaunee received RBI hits from Mykenzi Uhlers, Alaina Ledvina and Taylor Schlies, but it was not nearly enough in a 13-3 loss to Oconto.

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.

Clippers Move To 5-0 With Victories At Wild Rose

Game 1 on Saturday saw Sturgeon Bay shut out Rio 14-0 in 5 innings behind the 2-hit pitching of freshman Chris Lodl. His performance included 6 strikeouts and 2 walks. Hitting leaders with 2 hits each were Ryan Jacobson, Mitchell Jackson, and Trent Ehlers, with Ehlers producing 4 RBI with a double and a triple.


Isaac Berkley and Anthony Jennerjohn shared pitching duties in a 21-4 trouncing
of Wild Rose in game 2. Jake Schneider had a monster day at the plate, going 4-4 with 7 RBI. Ryan Jacobson and Reece Nellis had 2 hits each, and Max Bordeau put Wild Rose out of their misery with a 3-run HR in the final inning of the 5-inning game. Sturgeon Bay now travels to NEW Lutheran on Monday for a Packerland Conference battle.

Luxemburg-Casco and Sturgeon Bay girls soccer tie

A day after both schools lost in the opening game of the Notre Dame Quad, Luxemburg-Casco and Sturgeon Bay tied each other at two on Saturday. Starr and Fischer Beckham scored the two goals for the Clippers.

 

On Friday, Sturgeon Bay lost to the host school 7-1, while L-C lost a tough hard-fought game to Lakeland 1-0.

 

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

Gibraltar participated in the Neenah Boys Indoor Invite on Friday and picked up 28.5 team points. Victor Jauregui, Leif Olson and Evan Henry were some of the standouts for the Vikings. Visit the Gibraltar page at DoorKewauneeHighSchoolSports.com for a full recap of the action.

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

The Kewaunee boys track team came out the big winners Thursday on a day the Storm and the Gibraltar Vikings' girls team saw action.

Max Hanrahan (800m), Nick Baumgartner (300m hurdles and pole vault), the 4 x 400 relay, Tanor Bortolini (shot put), and Elliot Van Goethem (Discus) all captured titles.  The girls' team took 5th in the meet, led by top four finishes by Sara Dax (shot and discus), 4 x 800 relay, Elizabeth Lamach (1600m and 3200 m run), and Ashlyn Pribek ( 400m and 800m run).

It was a nailbiter in Fish Creek and a blowout in Peshtigo as Gibraltar and Kewaunee both picked up early season victories Thursday. 

 

Two big rallies in the second and sixth innings along with a strong pitching performance by Daniel Stangel gave the Storm the 11-1 victory over the Bulldogs.

Softball round-up: L-C, Southern Door win in shutouts

The Luxemburg-Casco Spartans and Southern Door Eagles softball teams had impressive performance during their shutout wins Thursday. Sevastopol knocked off their conference rival Gibraltar.

 

A five-spot in the fifth inning was all pitcher Aly Dart needed as the Spartans rolled to a 5-0 victory over Marinette.

 

For the second time this week, Southern Door did not need to play a full seven innings to win, shutting out Algoma 12-0 in just five frames.

 

Sevastopol recovered from their blowout opening day loss to slip by Gibraltar 7-6. Karley Schram led the Pioneers going 2-3 including a three-run homer.

Phoenix fall in CIT Championship

Sandy Cohen, JayQuan McCloud, and Shanquan Hemphill led the Phoenix in scoring with all three registering double figures in points. The Phoenix actually held a double-digit lead for large portions of the first half before entering halftime with just a 42-40. The Thundering Herd put the clamps down on the Phoenix in the second half, allowing them to only shoot 27 percent from the field and kept their visitors scoreless for the final five minutes.

Peralta deals, Brewers sweep Reds

The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 1-0 Wednesday afternoon. Manny Pina provided all of the run support needed in this one with an RBI single in the second. It was a low scoring affair in the final game of the series. 

 

Freddy Peralta was dominant on the mound for Milwaukee. He went a career-high eight innings of shutout baseball while striking out 11 in the contest. He would pick up his first win of the season. 

 

With Josh Hader not available for the game after pitching the previous two, Alex Wilson came in to close the ninth. Couple threats in the inning, but he would come out with a save. After sweeping the Reds, “the crew” is now 6-1 on the season. 

 

Milwaukee will now travel back home where they will start a series with the Cubs Friday. Brandon Woodruff is slated to take the mound for the Brewers. He will square off against Jose Quintana. First pitch will be thrown out at 7:10

Arcia's homer leads Brewers past the Reds

Orlando Arcia's first hit of the season couldn't have come at a better time for the Brewers. With the game tied at one in the sixth, Arcia hit a three-run home run off Reds reliever Michael Lorenzen. Milwaukee would be able to hold on to the lead and win by a final score of 4-3. Arcia came into that at-bat in the sixth at 0-14 on the season.

 

Jhoulys Chacin got the start on the mound for the Brewers and picked up the victory pitching 5 2/3 innings allowing 2 runs. Josh Hader picked up his league-leading fourth save. Zach Duke got the loss in relief for the Reds.

 

The Brewers have now won four games in a row. They will finish up their three-game set in Cincinnati in a Wednesday matinee with the first pitch coming at 11:35 AM.

 

 

 

 

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

Sandy Cohen III's late-game heroics now has UW-Green Bay on the verge of a postseason championship. The Phoenix defeated Texas Southern 87-86 in overtime on Tuesday night in the semifinals of the CollegeInsiders.com Tournament. 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.

 

The game was tied at 76 going to overtime after the Tigers finished regulation on a 6-0 run.

 

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 leads Bucks past Nets

The Milwaukee Bucks blew past the Brooklyn Nets 131-121 in their matchup Monday night. 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.
