Brewers lose late to A's

The late-inning magic continued for the Milwaukee Brewers but they ultimately lost to the Oakland Athletics Tuesday night 3-2.

 

After Yasmani Grandal tied the game at one in the eighth inning on a single, former Brewers prospect Kris Davis got the lead right back with a home run to make it a 2-1 game. Eric Thames tied it up again in the top of the ninth inning with his 15th home run of the season. It was the third time in four games the Brewers were able to tie or take the lead in the eighth inning or later. After the Brewers kept the game tied heading into extras, Matt Olson made sure the home Oakland fans left happy with a walk-off home run against Brewers closer Josh Hader.

 

The two teams meet again tonight in Oakland for a 9:07 p.m. start.




High school athletes prepare for upcoming season

Some local high school athletes will officially head back to practice next week as the fall sports season kicks off.

 

Football teams have had workouts this summer, but can begin picking up their equipment on August 5th with the first official practice scheduled for August 6th. This will give teams a few weeks to get acclimated before games begin August 23rd.

 

Other teams getting an earlier start to the year include girls' golf on August 12th and girls' tennis on August 13th. All other fall sports begin on August 19th. 

 

Students and their parents need to check with their school's individual requirements before they can begin practicing, which include getting their physical and attending a co-curricular code meeting.

Kramer captures $10,000 K/D Salmon Tournament prize

Kewaunee/Door Salmon Tournament officials met Monday night to name its top fish and set the dates for future events.

 

The Kewaunee/Door County Salmon Tournament committee met in Sturgeon Bay Monday night to hash out the 2019 tournament and plan ahead for 2020, and beyond.

Dates for 2020 and 2021 were set, and the vote was near-unanimous to stick with the Friday start. The dates are July 17-25, 2020, and a week later in 2021, July 23-31. There was also discussion about expanding the contest for the 40th anniversary in 2022, but nothing yet set.

We need to connect with the winners of the 9.9 Yamaha from Shipyard Island Marina and the DJI drone package from K/D before announcing those, but the rest of the 2019 Tournament is a wrap!

As expected (due to Kewaunee's high water closing the public marina and spotty salmon catches this summer off all ports), ticket sales were down slightly from last year. Final numbers won't be official until we locate a misplaced book from one of the ticket outlets.

Earlier this year coordinators agreed to increase the payouts near the top. Even with reduced sales and higher expenses this year, the committee still paid down 100 places. The payouts ranged from $10,000 cash, a mount from Twin Rivers Taxidermy and a silver salmon ring from wisconsincharm.com for first to a $100 West Marine gift certificate for 100th. Including the cash, port prizes, early bird prizes, 9.9 kicker, Fishin' Magician and Kinn's charters, $500 Nicolet Bank anniversary bonus cash, West Marine gift card, and tackle and shopping sprees from Howie's Tackle and Accurate Marine & Tackle, more than $50,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded.

The first place salmon, Josh Kramer's 36.70-pounder caught off Baileys Harbor, was the biggest in 20 years and the fourth heaviest winner in the K/D's 37-year history, trailing only three 1990s giants. There were 13 30-pound-plus fish officially registered this year, and six others either with no tickets or not enough tickets for all the anglers on the boat.

It was the fifth straight year of a 30-pound-plus winner — second only to a string of 11 in a row from 1989-1999 — and seventh since 2011.

Nearly 500 chinooks larger than 20 pounds were registered, including 148 that topped 25 pounds! A year ago, 51st place was 25.04 lbs. This year, 25.04 was 144th place and out of the money. A fish that size, 25 pounds, is bigger than K/D winners in 2007 (24.96) and 2008 (23.82).

Next up is a small tournament in Algoma, Aug. 7-11, a multi-species contest with adult and youth categories, shore and boat. Tickets for that one will go on sale this weekend. Check out https://www.facebook.com/ShantyDaysFishing/ for updates later this week.

Brewers drop series finale to Cubs

It took a seven RBI day from Kyle Schwarber for the Chicago Cubs to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers in an 11-4 victory Sunday afternoon at Miller Park.

 

Scwarber hit a grand slam in the second inning and a three-run homer in the fourth inning to stake the rival Cubs to a seven-run lead. Both starting pitchers struggled to even get five innings as Zach Davies was chased after five innings and Jose Quintana left just before that. He was pulled after the Brewers cut the lead to 7-3 thanks to a Manny Pina single, a sacrifice fly by Lorenzo Cain, and a double by Christian Yelich. The Brewers gave the three runs right back after Victor Caratini homered with a pair on to make it a 10-3 margin. A double by Ryan Braun and a groundout by Wilson Contreas capped off the scoring for both teams.

 

The weekend series left the Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals tied for first place and the Brewers sitting just one game back. The Brewers will travel on their day off to Oakland to face the Athletics on Tuesday night.

Josh Hader held the Cubs down in the ninth to get save and give the Brewers a 3-2 win.

Brewers begin huge series with Cubs Friday night

The Brewers could jump from third to first this weekend if they're able to sweep a three-game series with the Cubs this weekend. It begins on Friday night at 7:10 PM at Miller Park where Milwaukee comes in two games behind the Cubs and the Cardinals for first place in the NL Central Division. If the Brewers are able to sweep the Cubs, they will overtake them in the division and if the Cardinals struggle against the Astros, Milwaukee could find themselves in first place. Friday's pitching matchup is Gio Gonzalez for the Brewers against Kyle Hendricks for the Cubs.

Luxemburg-Casco releases key football dates

Luxemburg-Casco football players do not have much summer left before practices start for the season.

 

Coaches released important dates coming up for their players ranging from preschool through high school. The Spartans' first high school game will be on August 23rd. Important dates are listed below from the team's Facebook page.

 

 

Casco hosts girls Little League tournament

Juniors already started tournament play on Wednesday night and will compete through Sunday. Seniors start play Thursday and will continue through Sunday. Powderpuffs play all day Saturday. Village Park and Holy Trinity will host games throughout the weekend.

 

 

KD Salmon Tournament Update: Twenty pounders keep coming in

Even without Sturgeon Bay's report from Wednesday, registration sites have seen 300 20-pound-plus chinooks weighed through five days of the 37th annual Kewaunee/Door County Salmon Tournament.

 

At this point it seems possible that it'll take a "king" of at least 24 pounds to even crack the top 150. That's an impressive fish in its own right — and big enough to win the K/D 11 years ago, in 2008! 

But this year, wow — at least 13 30-pound-plus giants officially on the board, and three others that couldn't be entered (no ticket, or not everyone on the boat with tickets), plus several upper 29s. 

Mike Eder weighed this 30.62 at Accurate Marine & Tackle in Kewaunee today. Algoma had a fish just shy of 30, while Linda Jesierski had a 28.26 to Baileys Harbor and Joel Goham a 27.90 on the Island. 

Brewers salvage series finale from Reds

The Cincinnati Reds continued their first-inning success, but the Milwaukee Brewers scored late to capture a 5-4 win Wednesday afternoon.

 

A collection of base hits staked the Reds to a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but Ryan Braun's 15th homer of the season knotted things up at two. The Reds would get single tallies in the second and third innings to make it 4-2, forcing starter Jhoulys Chacin out of the game. The bullpen was lights out after that and the Brewers took the lead in the fifth inning thanks to a solo homer by Keston Hiura and a two-run single by Yasmani Grandal. Josh Hader and Freddy Peralta wrapped things up for the Brewers, striking out seven of the final nine Reds players.

 

Currently in third place in the National League Central, the Brewers could flip the script this weekend when they welcome to the division-leading Chicago Cubs to Miller Park for a three-game set Friday.

Sturgeon Bay Girls Basketball hosting 17th annual Golf Scramble

K/D Salmon Tournament update: Sevastopol grad catches biggest so far

Absolutely un'reel' day today in the K/D, with a 34+ that moved into first early, then a 36.55 with no ticket and finally, a 36.70 caught late afternoon (and definitely not the same fish — look at the photos posted earlier; not only the shape and color, check out the dorsal fin).

Twenty-pounders are very common this year, and it's starting to look like it'll take well into the low to mid-20s to get in on the money. We'll see!

Get this question daily: can I still purchase a ticket now that the tournament is underway? The answer is YES, just be sure you do so before you fish, and make certain everyone 10 and older aboard the boat has a valid K/D ticket (including the captain and mate if on a charter).

We're hearing boatloads of "the big one got away" stories. Don't overtighten the drags, or try to "muscle" a big king when it's not ready. For those of you new to this salmon fever, be sure your reel has at least 300 yards of quality line, and be prepared to turn the boat if needed so you don't get spooled.

Tight lines, smooth drags and a whole lot of patience gets it done. 
Good luck to all!

Reds knock around Davies and win big over Brewers

The normally-reliable Zach Davies got knocked around on Tuesday night at Miller Park against the Reds. Davies hadn't allowed more than one earned run in four straight starts but that streak ended in the first inning. Eugenio Suarez and Jesse Winker each hit two-run homers off him in the first. Davies would allow two earned runs in the fifth as the Reds extended their lead to 9-0 and eventually win 14-6. The bullpen also struggled for Milwaukee. Alex Claudio and Burch Smith combined to allow seven earned runs in just three innings of work. Jay Jackson was the lone bright spot on the mound, pitching the final two innings and only allowing a walk and striking out 3.

 

Manny Pina came off the bench to provide most of the offense for the Brewers. He hit a two-run homer in the sixth and a two-run single in the eighth. 

 

The Reds have now taken the first two games of the series. Milwaukee will try to salvage the final game of the series in a Wednesday matinee at Miller Park. First pitch is at 1:10 PM.

K/D Salmon Tournament Update: Three more crack 30 pounds

Five days to go and a dozen 30-pound-plus chinooks put to K/D scales in Door and Kewaunee counties, including two that couldn't be counted as not all the anglers had tickets. The 10-so-far is one more than the entire 9-day, lakewide Salmon-A-Rama produced.

A waning full moon is offering potential for midnight to dawn action on clear nights, but many of this year's heavyweights have been caught outside the more typically productive dawn and dusk periods. In fact, late morning, early afternoon and early evenings have produced more giants than the first and last hours of daylight so far.

A mix of mostly offshore winds are in the forecast the next three days before a switch to a stronger, south/southwest flow late Thursday into Friday. How much it's southwest vs. straight south will be key in determining how fishable it will be the final two days. If it leans southwest after a few days of offshore winds it could be very fishable — and potentially productive — just two to four miles out from Kewaunee to Baileys, and almost anywhere in the deeper nearshore waters around the islands.

Here's another look at the biggest "king" from today, Jeren Ostrowski's 32.06.

Gibraltar cross country recruiting new runners

It is almost time for runners in Gibraltar Area Schools to lace up their shoes for the season.

 

Middle school students and their parents can begin filling out the Middle School Cross Country Sign Up Form to notify Coach Joy Bastian in advance of this fall's season. New and interested high school athletes can email Coach Bastian at jmanweiler@gibraltar.k12.wi.us with questions or to be added to the roster.

 

The Vikings will look to fill some big shoes this fall after all-state cross country runner Evan Henry graduated this spring.

 

 

Saladino slam not enough against Reds

Tyler Saladino's second grand slam in as many days made it close, but the Milwaukee Brewers could not close the deal Monday night, falling to the Cincinnati Reds 6-5.

 

A Yasmani Grandal double opened the scoring for the Brewers in the third inning, only to see the Reds score single tallies in the fifth and sixth to take a small 2-1 advantage. The Reds' Eugenio Suarez doubled the lead with a two-run homer in the seventh to make it 4-1. The Brewers would take the lead on Saladino's slam in the bottom of eighth, only to see it disappear when Suarez hit his second two-run homer of the game. Jeremy Jeffress took the loss for the Brewers.

 

The two teams are back at it at Miller Park at 7:10 p.m.

Veterans report to Packers Training Camp

The first signs of fall are being found at St. Norbert College in De Pere this week as the Green Bay Packers prepare for training camp.

 

Rookies moved into their rooms on campus on Sunday while veterans are expected to report today. Fans will get their first action of training camp week when the Green Bay Packers host their annual stockholders meeting Wednesday morning. The first public practice is scheduled for 10:15 a.m. Thursday. It marks the first of four straight days of public practices for the Packers, which will have 13 during the summer in addition to a pair of practices with the Houston Texans and the annual Family Night scrimmage on August 2nd.

K/D Salmon Tournament Update: Eight top 30 pounds

The storms and the fog could not stop anglers from catching eight fish eclipsing the 30-pound barrier during the opening weekend of the Kewaunee/Door Salmon Tournament.

 

 A minimum of 166 chinooks larger than 20 pounds were brought in, including 50 that were heavier than 25 pounds. 

Eight 30-pound-plus chinooks were brought to official scales, including a 32.92 with no ticket opening morning. That left seven that counted, and two of them came in Sunday, a 31.98 for Wesley Hansen of Green Bay at Baileys Harbor (caught Saturday night, weighed Sunday morning; shown), and a 31.51 for Austin Novak at Washington Island (shown in the group pic earlier). 

Winds began to pick up from the north late Sunday, and were expected to stay north Monday before switching northwest, then west, through Thursday. As of this writing, a strong southwest/south blow is expected Friday and Saturday. If you've got some vacation days coming, Tuesday to Thursday might be the right time to use 'em!

DCL Round-up: Sister Bay keeps pace

Sister Bay won big in its Sunday tilt to keep right behind Egg Harbor in the Door County League baseball standings.
 

After Egg Harbor scored a blowout 13-1 win on Friday in Institute, Tom Sawyer hit for the cycle in the Bays' 12-2 win over Maplewood.

 

Multi-hit games by Ben Geiger, Matt Foss, and Hannes Johnson led Washington Island to an 8-1 victory over Baileys Harbor.

 

West Jacksonport also got a W Sunday, beating Kolberg 5-1.

Sevastopol sets athletic meetings

Parents with Sevastopol students as young as fourth grade can get a jump start on the fall sports seasons.

 

For students in 4th-6th grades, the Mighty Pioneers will host an informational meeting this Thursday at 7 p.m. to discuss the upcoming fall girls basketball and football seasons.  That meeting will coincide with an athletic code meeting for the high school students planning on playing in fall sports at 6 p.m.

 

Both meetings will take place in school's multipurpose room.

Rass Memorial Race rescheduled

The canceled Rass Memorial Race as The Hill Raceway in Sturgeon Bay has a new date.

 

Race officials announced on Facebook Sunday that the race honoring Troy Rass will be on August 17th, which coincides with Hall of Fame Night at the track. The festivities are slated to start at 5:30 p.m. to allow time for an opening ceremony with the Hall of Fame induction, the regularly scheduled program and a special celebration of Troy Rass with his family and friends at intermission.

 

 

Brewers get series win behind three run rally

A three-run rally in the eighth inning gave the Milwaukee Brewers a much-needed series win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday.

 

Tyler Saladino delivered an important blow in the fourth inning, hitting a grandslam with the Brewers down 4-0 to tie the game up. It stayed tied at 4-4 until the fateful eighth inning when Mike Moustakas, Yasmani Grandal, and Ben Gamel strung together hits to drive in the game and series clinching runs. Josh Hader settled things in the ninth inning for his 22nd save of the season.

 

The Brewers return home for an important homestand with plenty of NL Central intrigue as they face the Cincinnati Reds and the Chicago Cubs in consecutive series. 

K/D Salmon Tournament Update: Great catch for Alberts

Austin Alberts of Casco caught a 41-inch, 31.11-pound chinook just before sunset at Algoma Saturday to crack the top 5 in the Kewaunee/Door Salmon Tournament.

 

It hit a fly set about halfway down in 150 feet of water. He was fishing with Chad Alberts and Collin LeGrave. 

Washington Island had 14 over 20 pounds on the scale Saturday, including a 30.61 for Mike Cornell; Baileys had 10 over 20, including Jay Gorton's 26.80. 

Will provide a more complete update later today after tournament officials get Kewaunee's report, but there are more than 25 "kings" larger than 25 pounds on the leader board. That's incredible when you factor in all the time lost to storms and heavy fog off some ports that kept many anglers on shore the past two days.  Buck Felhofer's 33.59 pound catch at Baileys Harbor remains the biggest salmon caught so far in the storm-riddled tournament.

The forecast is calling for a switch to north winds (strongest Sunday night/Monday morning) followed by west winds Tuesday through Thursday. 

 

 

Gibraltar's Reinhardt shines in WFCA 8-Man Football All-Star game

Former Gibraltar quarterback Trevor Reinhardt had an impressive end to his high school football career in the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association All-Star Game Saturday in Oshkosh.

 

Reinhardt had a hand in all three WFCA South scores in a 21-6 win cut short due to weather. Reinhardt scampered for a one-yard score in the opening five minutes and threw a 48-yard touchdown pass to Port Edwards' Addison Gibbs a few minutes later. He would cap off his offensive production with another touchdown, ending the day completing 12 passes for just 205 yards while rushing for another seven.  Sevastopol's Jeremy Jorns, Nathan Stenzel, and Max Krohn cracked the scorebook on the defensive side of the ball, each registering at least one tackle.

 

The three-game WFCA All Star Weekend raised over $370,000 for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, including $15,015 by Door County athletes.

 

 

Three games dot Sunday's DCL schedule

If the area fields survived Saturday's storms, baseball fans will have their choice of games to choose from in Door County League baseball action.

 

Sunday's 1:30 p.m. starts include Washington Island hosting Baileys Harbor, West Jacksonport playing at home against Kolberg, and Sister Bay traveling to Maplewood. 

Brewers' late rally sets up Sunday rubber match

The heroics of Mike Moustakas Saturday night gave the Milwaukee Brewers a much needed 8-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

 

It was just 1-1 entering the bottom the fifth when the Diamondbacks put up two runs thanks to run-scoring doubles by Carson Kelly and Zack Greinke. Eric Thames would answer for the Brewers in the top half of the sixth inning with a solo home run to make it 3-2 Diamondbacks. Moustakas dealt the big blow in the top of the eighth, taking a 2-0 pitch for a ride to the left-field bleachers, driving in Christian Yelich and Ryan Braun. The Brewers would add insurance runs in the ninth inning thanks to a Yelich double and an RBI single courtesy of Keston Hiura.

 

The two teams go for the series win at Chase Field in Phoenix at 3:10 p.m.

 

 

The Hill Raceway forced to cancel Saturday's race

Soggy track conditions forced The Hill Raceway to cancel its July 20th slate of races.

 

Race officials said on Facebook on Saturday that they will work to reschedule the Rass Memorial for a later date.

 

The Hill Raceway is back in action August 1st for its annual Door County Fair slate of races.

 

 

Ahnapee Trailblazers Clinches Lead in Fifth Inning for Victory Over Kewaunee County

Ahnapee Trailblazers defeated Kewaunee County 9-1 on Friday after taking the lead late in the game. The game was tied at one with Ahnapee Trailblazers batting in the top of the fifth when Adam G doubled on the first pitch of the at bat, scoring two runs. Ahnapee Trailblazers notched four runs in the sixth inning. The offensive onslaught by Ahnapee Trailblazers was led by Devin S and Adam, who each had RBIs in the inning. Tyler K led the Ahnapee Trailblazers to victory on the pitcher's mound. He went seven innings, allowing one run on six hits, striking out four and walking one. Dahlke took the loss for Kewaunee County. He went four and a third innings, allowing four runs on four hits and striking out three. Ahnapee Trailblazers tallied one home run on the day. Adam went for the long ball in the sixth inning. Adam went 2-for-4 at the plate to lead Ahnapee Trailblazers in hits. Kewaunee County had six hits in the game.

Diamondbacks slither past Brewers 10-7

Snappers Break Rattlers with Twenty Hits

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers won the first two games of their three-game series with the Beloit Snappers at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium on exciting, late rallies.  There was no late rally on Monday afternoon as the Snappers compiled twenty hits to beat Wisconsin 11-2 in the final meeting of the season between the two in-state rivals.

 

Anthony Churlin drove in the first four runs of the game to give the Snappers the lead.  All four of his RBI came with two outs in an inning.  In the first inning, Churlin put Beloit up 2-0 with a two-run single.  In the third, Churlin hit a two-out, two-run home run off the scoreboard beyond the wall in left-center for a 4-0 lead.

The Snappers (31-54 overall, 4-13 second half) stole a run in the top of the fourth inning.  Max Schuemann was at second with one out.  Skyler Weber sent a deep fly to right-center for an out.  Schuemann tagged at second and never stopped.  He beat the throw to the plate to score the run and the Snappers were up 5-0.

Wisconsin (42-45, 11-7) loaded the bases in the bottom of the fourth inning and plated two runs to cut into the deficit.  Yeison Coca singled to left to get the first run home.  Leugim Castillo knocked in the second run of the inning with a sacrifice fly.  Little did anyone know that the hit by Coca would be the final hit of the game of the Timber Rattlers.

Beloit expanded their lead with three runs in the top of the sixth.  Nick Ward drove in the first run of the inning with a double to right.  Cobie Vance followed with a two-run single and the Snappers were up 8-2.

Ward, Vance, and John Jones, the top three hitters in the Beloit lineup, did the majority of the damage.  The trio combined for fourteen of Beloit’s twenty hits in the contest.  Ward and Jones each had five hits while Vance added four hits to the total.  

Beloit scored three times in the ninth.  Ward and Jones each had RBI singles.  The other Beloit run in the inning scored on a wild pitch.

Chase Cohen closed out the Rattlers.  He walked Gabriel García to start the sixth inning, but retired the final twelve batters of the game for his first save.


This was the second time in the last week that Beloit denied the Rattlers a three-game sweep.  Wisconsin won the first two games of the series at Pohlman Field on June 29 and 30 only to lose to the Snappers on July 1.  Wisconsin won the first two games of this series, but dropped the finale.

The last time Beloit had twenty hits in a game against the Timber Rattlers was on August 5, 2006.

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers trailed 3-0 and had just one hit through 5-1/2 innings on Sunday afternoon.  The offense got the wake-up call just in time as they rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Beloit Snappers at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium.  Wisconsin put the game into the win column with a two-run rally in the bottom of the ninth inning for their second straight win.

Infante left the game after the Rattlers got on the scoreboard.  He allowed one run on two hits with one walk and four strikeouts over 5-2/3 innings to put himself in line for his first Midwest League win.

Wisconsin chipped away with an unearned run against reliever Brice Nightengale in the seventh inning.  Connor McVey drew a walk to start the inning and was at second with two outs.  Howell sent a grounder to the hole at short and beat the throw for an infield single.  A poor throw to first wound up in the Beloit dugout and McVey scored.

The Snappers had the bases loaded with one out in the top of the eighth inning, but failed to score as reliever Victor Castaneda got an inning-ending 3-2-3 double play.

In the bottom of the eighth, Turang walked and Fry singled with one out, but both were left stranded in scoring position when the inning ended.

Castaneda worked a scoreless top of the ninth to set the stage for the Rattlers completion of the comeback.

Gabriel García started the inning with a walk.  Howell singled through the right side of the infield for his third hit of the game and that sent García around to third base.  Rios, who was seeing his first action for the Rattlers since a start on June 14, was next and he delivered for Wisconsin.  Rios got García home with an infield single to the hole at short to tie the game 3-3.

Rattlers Declare Victory with Three-Run Ninth Inning at Kane County

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers scored three runs on one hit in the top of the ninth inning to rally past the Kane County Cougars on Thursday night at Northwestern Medicine Field.  Wisconsin’s 4-3 victory snapped a three-game losing streak and pulled them to within a game of the Cougars at the top of the second half Western Division standings.

 

Wisconsin (40-43 overall, 9-5 second half) took the early lead.  David Fry doubled and Jesús Lujano singled to put runners on the corners with one out in the top of the first.  Connor McVey was next and he dropped a bunt up the first line.  McVey was out, but Fry scored on the safety squeeze and the Rattlers had a 1-0 lead.

 

Wisconsin starter Adam Hill was in trouble in the third inning as the first two Kane County batters of the frame reached base.  He got out of the jam with a double play and a strikeout.

 

The Cougars (45-38, 10-4) loaded the bases with no outs against Hill in the fourth inning on two hits and a hit batsman.  Hill limited the damage and allowed just one run.  He got a 4-3 double play that scored a run and made a nice play on a drag bunt up the first base line to get the final out.

 

The Timber Rattlers offense went silent against Cougars starting pitcher Matt Tabor after a one-out single by Je’Von Ward in the second inning.  Tabor retired the final fourteen batters he faced.

 

Hill left after five innings and 89 pitches for Wisconsin.  He allowed one run on three hits with two walks, two hit batsmen, and five strikeouts.

 

Jose Herrera put Kane County up 2-1 in the bottom of the sixth when he lined a solo homer to right-center.  

 

Wisconsin reliever Tyler Gillies, gave up the homer and it was the first one he had allowed in 31 innings this season.  The home run also snapped his scoreless streak at eleven innings.  Gillies had not allowed a run since June 4 when he gave up three runs to the Cougars at Northwestern Medicine Field.

 

The Rattlers threatened to tie the game in the seventh and eighth innings against reliever Chester Pimentel.  In the seventh, Chad McClanahan walked with one out and Ward singled with two outs to put runners at the corners, but Pimentel got a strike out to end the threat.  In the ninth, Yeison Coca reached on an error to start the inning, but he was erased on a strike-‘em out, throw-‘em out double play.

 

Eduardo Diaz gave the Cougars an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth inning when he drilled an 0-2 pitch from Victor Castaneda over the wall in left for a lead-off homer and a 3-1 advantage.  The insurance run would not hold up for Kane County.

 

Wisconsin got to Pimentel in the ninth as Lujano singled and McVey walked.  Pimentel got the first out of the inning with a strikeout and left the game in favor of the newest Kane County pitcher, who also happened to be a very familiar face to the Timber Rattlers.

 

Jose Cuas, who was an infielder for the Rattlers in 2017 and a pitcher for Wisconsin in 2018 until he was released by the Milwaukee Brewers on July 10 of last year, had just joined the Cougars earlier in the day on Thursday.  He had been signed as a Minor League free agent by the Arizona Diamondbacks and had not allowed a run in 9-1/3 innings over seven outings for the Hillsboro Hops in the Northwest League prior to joining the Cougars.

 

Gabriel García was the first batter to face Cuas on Thursday and he drew a walk to load the bases.  Ward was next and he drew another walk to force in Lujano and cut the deficit to one run.

 

Brent Díaz fell behind in the count but lined a 1-2 pitch to right that was deep enough to score McVey with the tying run and get García to third base.  That turned out to be big when a pitch to Coca got away from Herrera at the plate to allow García to score the go-ahead run.

 

Castaneda went back out for the bottom of the ninth and walked Geraldo Perdomo to start the frame.  Castaneda came back to retire the next two batters on a flyout and a strikeout, but that brought Eduardo Diaz back to the plate.  Castaneda didn’t allow Diaz to repeat his eighth inning performance and closed out the game with a strikeout.

 

The final game of the brief series is Friday night at Northwestern Medicine Field.  Logan Gillaspie (2-4, 3.95) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Timber Rattlers.  Kane County will counter with Levi Kelly (3-0, 2.63).  First pitch is scheduled for 6:30pm.

Green Bay Gets Win to Start Second Half

The Green Bay Booyah fought tooth and nail and found a way to get a 5-4 win over the Dock Spiders to open up the second half.

 

Fond du Lac scored first in the top half of the first inning after Tim Elko ripped an RBI single back up the middle to plate Charlie Maxwell. The Booyah, who had lost seven previous games, felt back in the same position coming back to bat in the bottom of the first.

 

Green Bay didn’t score in the bottom of the first, but they did pick up two runs in the second. Joe Mason led off the inning with a single, and Chris Williams followed by doubling over the left field wall to put runners at second and third. Jacob Buchberger brought in the first run of the day when he grounded out to plate Mason. The next batter for the Booyah, Jarrett Ford, took a 1-0 pitch to right field to bring in Williams and give Green Bay a 2-1 lead, and they never relinquished the lead after that.

 

At the plate, Blaise Maris led the way going 1-2 with a single, RBI, and two walks for Green Bay. Nick Kreutzer picked up an RBI on a single as well, going 1-3 on the evening. Jarrett Ford finished the day with two singles and an RBI, and Mike Ruggiero went 1-3 with a double and a run scored.

Lefty Tanner Lane came out of the bullpen for Green Bay to pick up the six out save for the Booyah. Lane allowed one hit, and picked up one strikeout in route to his third save of the year.

Berns coaches WBCA North All-Stars

Sturgeon Bay Clipper head manager John Berns coached his final games of the 2019 season over the weekend, leading the Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association North All-Stars to a 1-2 record.

 

Berns and his fellow coaches from Valders had two days to work with the collection of all-stars made up of some of the best senior baseball players in Wisconsin. One of those players was Kewaunee's Daniel Stangel, who Berns says was a pleasure to get to know a little bit better.

 

 

Berns could not say enough about the entire experience.

 

As American Legion baseball continues this summer, Berns is already looking forward to his next campaign as the skipper for the Sturgeon Bay Clippers baseball team.

It would not be until stoppage time in the second half before the Voyageurs would strike again behind the foot of Bradan Allen in the 93rd minute. 

 

The Voyageurs welcome the Des Moines Menace to town on July 4th.

Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol wrestler sees growth in girls' sport

A Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol wrestler got to see first hand this summer the potential the girls' sport has in store for the future.

 

Julia Gregory just wrapped her stint as one of the 127-lb wrestlers for Team Wisconsin at the inaugural 14U Girls National Dual tournament in Tulsa, Okla. On a team that went 6-0 on the weekend, Gregory picked up a pair of wins via a technical fall and fall. The eighth grader has been honing her skills ever since the Sturgeon Bay/Sevastopol middle school team ended its season earlier this year, filling her schedule with camps, practices, and tournaments. One of those tournaments saw her taking seventh place at the USA Wrestling Women's Nationals Meet. Girls wrestling has exploded in the last three decades, going from just over 100 kids in 1990 to around 15,000 this year. Gregory says girls wrestling is becoming a bigger deal.

After taking a little time off after her stints at national meets, Gregory hopes to be able to attend at least one wrestling camp a month before the middle school season kicks off again this winter. You can listen to the full interview online with this story.

Melky Cabrera drove in the game's first run with a single against Zach Davies in the first inning, a tally Davies would get right back himself with an RBI knock of his own to make it 1-1after four innings.

Tebon, Heinz, LeMieux, DeGrave, Brice Capture Thunder in a Bottle

Mother Nature helped provide the water this week for a track that proved to be very racy throughout an action packed evening of Friday Night Thunder at Luxemburg Speedway. Several new faces joined the weekly regulars in the pits, but would they find any success against the wily track veterans?

The Street Stocks would be the first class to answer the call to thunder. The 5W machine of last week’s winner, Nick Wunrow, would lead the field to the green and pace the opening circuits. It wouldn’t take long though for the Virlee Gunworks’ caution lights to fire off when the 32T of Becca Thiry got crossed up in turn four and was not able to get her car re-fired quickly enough prevent a yellow. The ensuing restart would see DeGrave lead Wunrow, Marcus Moede in the 9, and Eddie “The Eagle” Anschutz in the 71A back to the green. Moede would move quickly to 2nd and applied immediate pressure to the race leader. The pressure turned to contact in three and four that resulted in the 40D losing the handle and another caution would fly. Moede would be sent to the back with plenty of time to try and work through the field. The top four would now be; DeGrave, Wunrow, Anschutz, and the 46N of Chad Naze. DeGrave would pull away to a slight lead on the restart and leave Wunrow and The Eagle to battle for 2nd. The whole second half of the race would see the 71 and 5W battle back and forth for runner up. As laps wound down Wunrow would bobble slightly in turn three and move up the track opening just enough of a window for Anschutz to dive inside and take command of second until the checkers flew. The 111 car of Shannon Guelette would nip Naze for fourth. DeGrave earned a rewarding victory after breaking a transmission and blowing up a motor in consecutive nights last week.

The IMCA Northern Sport Mods would line up next to try and steal the thunder away from the rest of the classes. Randy LeMieux Jr. would find himself leading the field to green from the pole position, but would his 1JR machine have enough muscle to end there? The early laps would put that result in much doubt as LeMieux would face stiff competition from last week’s Luxy 500 winner, Troy “Snoot” DeGrave. DeGrave would move to the high side opening the door for Tailar Ness to duck down low and move into second. Meanwhile, back in the pack, the 14R car of Cody Rass moved past Chris Budzban into fourth as laps were ticking by. As the white flag flew Rass would be able to pick off DeGrave for third, Ness locked up second, and LeMieux would find himself parked in The Cobbler Shop Victory Lane.

Next on the docket for the evening was the IMCA Stock Cars who rolled out looking to earn the title of the class too tough to tame for another week. John Heinz must have slipped his 57H Mystery Machine a couple extra Scooby Snacks because he was able to power to the lead at the drop of the green. In a startling trend last week’s winner, Rob Waechter, would find himself sitting in second early on. A quick caution for the 33S of Zach Spangenberg would bunch up the field for a restart. Heinz would lead Waechter, the 2R of Dave Reinhardt, the 9K of Shawn Havel, and the 007 of Mike Carter back to the green. While Heinz and Waechter fell into line in first and second the field went three wide for third with Havel, Carter, and Reinhardt scrapping over the same piece of real estate. Havel would emerge from the scrum to lock down third but would not be able to hold on to it for long as Carter would find his way around the 9K after a handful of laps. The 99KK of Derek Moede had now worked his way into fifth and would engage in a side by side battle with Havel for fourth for the second half of the race. Havel would fend off the 99KK machine and come home fourth with Carter taking third, Waechter second, and Heinz would be unmasked by the gang as the winner.

The Sport Compact division would take to the track next to keep the excitement level building. The 07V of Cody Vinny would bull his way to the lead on the opening lap from his second row starting spot. He would face almost immediate pressure from the 5S car of Calvin Stueck and the 88B machine of Kevin Brice. Stueck would cut a right front tire and have to head down pit lane for service. This moved Brice comfortably into 2nd with the field battling behind him for third. A lap 8 caution would rerack the field with Vinny leading the way over Brice, the 21LM of Missy Clark, and the 76 Henry Neerdaels. Brice would stalk the leader until he found an opening to move up into P1. The 5S car of Calvin Stueck was able to rejoin the field and put on a show for the fans by going high, diving low, and even running off the back stretch to try and pass the 07V of Vinny but it was all for naught as Stueck was a lap down. Brice would hold on for the win in his first appearance of the 2019 season at Luxemburg while Vinny would finish second, Clark third, and Neerdaels would come home in fourth.

The Village Kitchen IMCA Modifieds would show why we save the best for last as the storm was brewing for an epic, thunder filled finish to the night. Kyle Kudick would jump to the lap one lead from his outside front row starting spot but it was far from uncontested as he had to throw his 4K machine three wide with the 19J of Justin Green, and the 21K of James Tebon to secure the top spot. Tebon would settle in to 2nd and the hard charging 20T of Brad Theys would find himself quickly sitting in 3rd. Theys would work the high side to move abreast of Tebon and managed to find the bite up top to move into the lead while Tebon was able to squeeze past Kudick as well to hold on to second. The 90J of Jeremy Jacobs and the 88L of Josh Long were able to move past the 4K after a brief battle. Back at the front Tebon moved inside of Theys with four to go while the 88L also moved inside of Jacobs to secure 3rd. With two laps to go Tebon was able to wrestle away the lead from Theys and looked to set sail to victory. Coming to the white flag Long would get past Theys to lock up second but by the time the lead trio came out of turn four to take the checkers they found themselves running three wide coming to the line. It was a photo finish that left the drivers wondering who won the dog fight until Tebon was handed the checkers for a victory lap. Theys would end up with second, Long third, and Jacobs had the best seat in the house finishing fourth in a race that was truly memorable.

Luxemburg Speedway will be back in action on July 5th as we celebrate our country’s independence with fireworks in the sky after the fireworks on the track. Be sure to join us next week for the next edition of pulse pounding Friday Night Thunder!
