Sheboygan, WI - The A's are climbing up the ladder.
With an 8-1 victory over Burlington, the A's have advanced to the next round of the step-ladder regional in the Wisconsin Class A State Tournament. They will now take on the West Allis Nationals tonight in West Allis.
Down 1-0 after the first, a pair of sacrifice flys and a single by TD Walker put the A's back up 3-1 after two.
The A's would follow that up with a Harry Steldt home run in the third, Cole Miklavic scoring on a wild pitch in the fourth, and a three-run homer by Chris Saltzman in the fifth.
Eric Schmitz went the distance on the mound, striking out 10 and giving up just three hits.
