The Sheboygan A’s split a doubleheader at Marinette Saturday, dropping the opener 7-4 and winning the nightcap, 10-3. An NEW championship is a bleak thought now.
Menasha has only two losses in Northeastern Wisconsin League play, while the A’s are 8-5.
“You can’t expect to win championships when you lose to last place teams,” GM Denny Moyer said. “We have one left with Menasha and I thought if we could win out, we might have a chance. It doesn’t look good now.”
The A’s play at Menasha tonight and Green Bay Tuesday before returning home to face Appleton Wednesday night and De Pere Thursday night.
Marinette hit A’s starter Kyle Moyer with a 3-spot in the first inning and the A’s never recovered. They had 10 hits in the 7-inning game but left nine on base, five in scoring position.
Bryce Brogni had three hits, Ross Krist a single and a double.
Harry Steldt’s 2-run home run in the first inning got the A’s going in the second game. Jake Arens hit a 2-run blast in the fifth and Kyle Peterson lofted a solo shot in the seventh. The A’s had 11 hits in the game to support winning pitcher Derek Loomans.
