Marinette Ousted in Regional; Menominee Moves onto State

Saturday afternoon it was all DePere Legion as the guys from the Green Bay area took the Legion Regional championship 10-2 over the Appleton Double Days, avenging a blow out loss in game one to the Double Days, 17-8.

Marinette was lucky this year to have the Regional on their home turf. Unfortunately the home field advantage wasn't enough to propel them to the State Tournament. They started the tournament with a 2-0 win over Ashport, after which DePere took down Ashport 10-2.

The Double Days continued to give the Marinette boys troubles, sending them to the losers bracket with a 4-2 defeat Thursday evening.

Looking to battle back, Marinette was disappointed in game five at the hands of the tough DePere crew who took the win 10-6, ending Post 39's season.

DePere continued their Regional winning streak as they finished Friday off with a 5-0 win over the Double Days. They also finished strong Saturday with that championship win.

During the first game with Ashport, Marinette's Matt Osterberg kept the pressure up striking out nine would be hitters while walking only three. He gave up two earned runs on six hits.

After a few rough strike out innings for the Marinette boys, Blake Margis got things moving reaching base on a walk. Nick Daye bunted to advance Margis to second. Daye's bunt also gave him enough time for him to get on base as well. Luke Johnson bunted for a base hit while Spencer Hipke flew out to right, bringing home Daye.

Osterberg kept the Ashport line up guessing, striking out at least one a inning over most of the game.

During the sixth, Bailey Brix singled to right and advanced to second on a Margis sacrifice fly. Johnson recorded the RBI on a single to bring the tally to 2-0.

At the plate Marinette was led by Johnson, who recorded a two of three performance while getting one RBI. Brix was two of four with one run.

The first loss of the tournament for Marinette was at the hands of the Double Days, who gave them a bit of a run a few weeks prior. Like their last meeting, Marinette had trouble producing the hits needed. This was due in large part to the effort of Appleton mound man Alex Gerhardt, who held the Marinette boys to two earned runs and five hits over eight innings.

Marinette started with a small burst of energy, thanks to a lead off single by Nick Sailer in the bottom of the first. The fleet-footed base runner slipped to second during Adam Wahl's at bat and third off a Margis single.

Luke Johnson hit a deep fly ball to center and Sailer tagged, going home before the throw could cut him off.

Appleton responded during the second with a Nick Goudreau lead off single. Gerhardt made it to first while Trenton Brunker popped up for an RBI. Zach Ziegler singled for another RBI to take the lead, 2-1. Appleton's Cullen Driscoll doubled to lead off the third and went home on a wild pitch for the two run lead.

Marinette narrowed the lead during the fourth, thanks to a Kevin Konyn walk and Kevin Charlesworth RBI single.

During the fifth, Appleton took advantage of one of the only errors committed by Marinette all night. Unfortunately it would be a scoring error as Driscoll crossed the plate.

Down by two and entering the final inning, Marinette almost evened the score. Two runners made it to third, but one was caught on his way to home while the other was left stranded on an infield pop up.

Marinette pitcher Tommy Sawinski suffered the loss, striking out three while allowing one run on six hits over 6 2/3 innings. Jagielski pitched the first 2 1/3 innings allowing three earned runs on three hits while walking five.

At the plate Margis was two of three while Sailer went two of five with one run. Johnson and Charlesworth both bagged and RBI.

Resuming play on Friday, Marinette was subsequently dispatched by the DePere boys 10-6.

Marinette threw everything they had at DePere, cycling through their bullpen they tried out four mound men.

Marinette took the initiative scoring three second inning runs and looked to be firmly in control of their destiny, but that all changed starting in the bottom of the fourth when DePere began to spark back to life. Four innings later they were way ahead 10-5.

Trey Bretl took the loss for Marinette, pitching 6 1/3 innings he struck out one while walking three. He gave up eight runs (five earned) on eight hits.



Red Wave Takes

Down Escanaba


The Menominee Red Wave Legion Baseball team traveled to Escanaba last Friday and Saturday to take part in the Escanaba Zone baseball tournament.

After three games Menominee had clinched a berth in the State Tournament. Menominee took down Copper Country 14-4, then defeated Marquette 9-5. The two wins would be enough for the clinch, but the tournament did not go off without a hitch as the Menominee boys dropped the final game of competition to Escanaba 4-3.

The Michigan Class A Legion State Tournament will be held in Adrian Mich. on the campus of Siena Heights University Thursday.

Friday's game saw the Red Wave open tournament play with a bang. A five point bang to be precise. That five run first inning lead would be hard for the Copper Country boys to overcome, especially since the Menominee wasn't done making its post season statement.

The mound win went to Nathan Nowack who took home five strikeouts while allowing four walks and four runs on three hits.

The second was marked by one of Menominee's mound men registering his first win of the season. That pitcher was Jason Janquart and he took his first "W" with five runs given up on eight hits while bagging three strikeouts.

Menominee's only loss of the tourney came in game three where Escanaba proved to be made of a tougher fabric than the previous two teams.

This time it was Levi Kempka's turn on the mound and he did not disappoint. Though he was saddled with the loss he put up some impressive numbers, allowing only three earned runs on a mere four hits. He walked six while striking out four.

The game was tied until the top of the ninth when Escanaba scored the go ahead run to take the lead and the eventual win.
