The first quarter concluded with the Bucks up 33-29. In the second quarter, the Bucks separated to take a 64-52 lead into the halftime break. 

 

In the early going of the second half, Atlanta would tighten the gap but the Bucks wouldn’t let up and would get back into rhythm.

Gamblers battle Team USA Friday night on 104.1 WRLU

The Green Bay Gamblers will look to start a new winning streak on Friday night when Team USA comes to town for the evening.

 

The Gamblers saw their four-game winning streak end on Wednesday night when they lost to the Dubuque Fighting Saints 6-2. Two of those wins came against Team USA, winning those contests by 5-4 and 5-2 scores. Head coach Pat Mikesch says they were able to have some success against them for a few reasons.

Mikesch hopes to bring of that back for their game Friday night against Team USA when the puck drops at 7:05 p.m. from the Resch Center. Tobin Meyer will be on the call for the game on NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com and 104.1 WRLU. 

Brewers burn Cubs

The Milwaukee Brewers pulled off the series victory over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday behind another dominant performance on the hill from pitcher Corbin Burnes. The final score was 7-0 in Milwaukee’s favor. Off to an electric start this season, Burnes is the first pitcher since 1906 to have thirty strikeouts and no walks through his first three starts. Burnes finished Wednesday’s rivalry showdown with ten strikeouts and gave up just two hits through six innings. 

 

In the first inning, the Brewers drove two runs in with an RBI single from Travis Shaw that brought Jackie Bradley Jr. across the plate. Travis Shaw would eventually score on an Omar Narvaez sacrifice fly. Travis Shaw would get his second run of the game on a solo home run in the bottom of the third. 

 

The Brewers' vision at the plate helped bring two runs in on walks in the bottom of the sixth inning as Avisail Garcia and Omar Narvaez were walked across. Corbin Burnes added cushion to his lead with a two-RBI single that scored Keston Hiura and Billy McKinney. That would make the score 7-0 after six and that was all the scoring the game needed. 

 

For the Brewers, it was their third straight series win. They move on to a 7-5 record this season and will take on the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 PM.

Brewers stall out in rivalry loss

After a two run inning to take a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second, the Brewers were unable to find their bats again, getting just three hits in a 3-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs. Luis Urias belted a two run home run in the bottom of the second that scored Manny Pina and that would be all the scoring for Milwaukee. 

 

The Brewers would retain the lead after giving up one run in the top of the fourth inning, but in the top of the eighth inning the Brewers would be taken over, giving up two more runs.

In the match to win sectionals, the Pioneers took St. Mary’s Springs to four sets. The first set went 27-25 in Springs’ favor, the next set would go Sevastopol’s way with a 25-18 win. In set three and set four it would be Springs on top with a 25-21 and 25-20 victory. The Pioneers finish the season with a 14-4 record and a runner-up finish at the sectional tournament. 

 

Algoma’s improbable run would fall short in the championship match. To begin sectionals, they beat Gresham Community in four sets. They took the first two sets 25-20 and 25-19 before Gresham got on the board with a 25-21 victory to stay alive. It would be all Algoma in set four as they rolled for a 25-6 win. 

 

In the title, Algoma would fall to Washburn 25-11, 25-15, and 25-6. Algoma would go from a struggling regular season to a mighty postseason run. The Wolves are recognized as sectional runner-ups.
