It was a great weekend for the Sheboygan A’s. At least it was until the 10th inning of their third game Sunday night.
That is when Andy Gayton singled in Keith Kerrigan with the Lombard Orioles’ fifth run in their 5-4 win over the A’s in the Wisconsin State League 5th Game Challenge.
With Eric Schmitz throwing an absolutely brilliant game at the League’s perennial champions, the A’s had taken a 3-0 lead into the sixth inning.
But then Jeremy Quade walked to break up Schmitz’ perfect game and start what would be a 4-run, lead-taking inning.
The A’s knotted the score at four in the seventh when Jack Falish singled in Ryan Fields. The tie remained until Gayton's 10th inning heroics.
The A’s started the weekend with big wins Saturday, 13-4 over Addison and 13-1 over Kenosha. Falish led the way against Addison with three hits and Jimmy Juergensen belted a grand-slam home run against Kenosha.
The A’s are 19-10-1 overall. Next up are important dates with Appleton: there Monday and back home Wednesday. Appleton is 4-1 in the Northeastern Wisconsin Baseball League and the A’s are 3-1.
The Milwaukee Brewers Racing Sausages will be at the park Wednesday night and it is also Salute to Service night when the ball club will honor military and civilian service men and women.
