Left-hander Eric Ryan stopped the A’s on just three hits in the opener of the 4-game weekend series in Addison to give his Braves a 3-2 win, but the A’s bats woke up after that and they ran up 35 runs in the next 21 innings to take three of four Wisconsin State League games over the weekend.
The wins were by 14-4, 9-7 and 13-4 scores.
The A’s had the tying and winning runs in scoring position in the seventh inning of the first game with only one out, but couldn’t advance them and Kyle Moyer took the tough loss.
The A’s jumped on Addison for five runs in the first inning of game two Saturday and coasted home with a 14-4 win. The A’s had 14 hits in the game with six A’s posting two. Ryan Fields was the winning pitcher.
Addison hit the A’s with three runs in the first inning of Sunday’s opener, but the A’s battled back and eventually forced it into extra innings where Harry Steldt cracked a 2-run home run to give the A’ the win. Ben Folger pitched four strong innings in relief of Derek Loomans to get the win.
Alex Dee crushed three doubles and added a single to lead the A’s to their 13-4 win in the finale. Kyle Peterson pitched five strong innings and Steldt was perfect in two innings of relief.
Now 10-7 overall and 7-4 in the Wisconsin State League, the 2019 season presented by Meijer continues when the A’s depart for Appleton and a Northeastern Wisconsin League game Tuesday night.
