Marinette/Menominee Open Summer Seasons with Wins

Issue Date: June 14, 2018

Marinette Opens Legion Season with Win

The Marinette Legion slipped past the DePere boys Saturday afternoon at Pedersen Park in Marinette with a narrow 1-0 victory. It was all about the strikeout for the Marinette boys who looked to last year's M&O MVP to do the job.

Matt Osterberg who dominated the M&O over the 2017 season returned from his year of college ball to participate with his old teammates and rivals in the Marinette Legion circuit.

By the end of the game the mound ace had amassed 13 strikeouts over seven innings. He gave up only two hits while allowing a single walk.

With all that defense its no wonder the Marinette boys shutout DePere.

But thats not to say that DePere didn't have a little magic of its own in the way of defense as they held the Marinette hitters away from the plate for three innings.

DePere posted a hit during the second inning as Henry Donaldson slapped a single but found himself stranded on third base. There second hit of the night came later in that inning off the bat of Cal Jenson.

Marinette Coach Brian Lesandrini commented at this point of the game, "Looks like this will be a 1-0 game. Both pitchers are throwing unbelievably well. Willem from DePere throws with amazing velocity and great control."

Marinette had some action on the baseline over the first three innings with most of their guys reaching base off of walks and being hit by pitches.

But in the fourth Marinette's Trey Bretl connected with a DePere pitch which he sent on a ride to deep right field for a double. Bretl later scored when Nick Daye sacrifice flied out to left filed for the RBI and the 1-0 lead.

After the fourth inning the Marinette defense dug in stopping the final nine DePere hitters from reaching base.

At the plate the Marinette was led by Matt Osterberg with a two of two performance. Riely Reif was one of one while Bretl was one of three with a run and a RBI.

DePere's Donaldson was one of two while teammate Jenson was one of three.

Taking the mound loss was DePere's Matt Willems who gave up five hits and one earned run along with two walks over six innings. He struck out three.



Appleton Falls to DePere in Triangular Play

Marinette Legion Baseball hosted a triangular Saturday and Sunday with Appleton and DePere taking the ride north to compete. After Marinette opened the weekends games with a 1-0 win over DePere, the guys from DePere retook the field to take on the Appleton Legion team who they defeated in five innings 11-1.

Though Appleton soon found themselves at the bottom of a giant hole with the DePere boys dumping tons of dirt on them, they took the lead first.

That lead was achieved in the second inning when Grant VerVoort was struck by a pitch and skirted home off a Brennan Chyroweth single to right field. It was their first run of the game, and their last, as the DePere boys went wild to close the game early.

Deeper started their game winning scoring rush in the third inning. Parker Nimmer walked to lead off followed by Cal Jenson on a double. Bennett Olson popped up a hit to bring home Nimmer while Jenson found an opening at the plate thanks to a wild pitch.

But the biggest moment of the game and perhaps the biggest moment of the summer came for the DePere boys in the fourth. With bases loaded Taylor Shale stepped up to the plate and slammed a shot over the outfield fence for a Grand Slam, giving his team the 9-1 lead exiting the fourth.

With two additional runs to close the fifth, DePere had all they needed to call it quits a bit earlier than normal.

Taking the win was Matt Freeman with four strikeouts to his name. He allowed two hits, one earned run and one walk.

Will Monroe was saddled with the loss giving up two hits, five earned runs and four walks while striking out four over his three and a third innings.

DePere's Tyler Shale was two of four at the plate with one run and five RBIs.



Marinette 10-Runs Appleton In Triangular

The Marinette Legion Baseball team, after posting a win to open their season earlier in the day, took on Appleton to close Saturdays triangular play. The Marinette boys won the matchup in five innings 11-1.

Marinette's first game was all about pitching, this one was more about the rest of the inflated's exemplary infield play as the Marinette boys shutdown the Appleton team with only a single run off eight hits.

After stopping the Appleton boys from scoring over the first innings, stranding two runners, the Marinette bats took to the ball like they were born for it.

Austin Marquardt reached first for Marinette off a bunt. Matt Osterberg walked while Nick Daye clubbed a single to right field to bring in Marquardt. Kylie Nelson cleaned up the bases with a solid shot to right field for two RBIs.

Appleton dug in over the second to control the damage Marinette was exerting on them.

Starting again in the third the Marinette bats were ready to improve the lead. Trey Bretl walked to lead off followed by Osterberg who was walked again. Brett scored off a wild pitch while Osterberg gunned it home off a Nelson sacrifice fly to deep right field.

Marquardt found his way back on base during the fourth inning while Bretl took one for the team, getting hit by a pitch for a base. Marquardt stole his way home while Nelson continued to churn out the RBIs with a single to right field.

Appleton posted their only run of the night during the fifth inning as Zach Weisgerber hit a single to right field and went home off a Aaron Reiland single to right.

Marinate bottom of the fifth resulted in four more runs with Osterberg slapping the biggest hit with a single to left for two RBIs.

At the plate Marinette was led by Brandon Eich with a one for one showing with two runs. Osterberg was one of two with two runs and two RBIs while Reif was one for two.

Appleton's Adam Zeratsky would not be denied his hits as he ended the night three for three. Aaron Reiland was two for three.

Taking the mound win was Matt Eldridge who allowed eight hits, one earned run and three walks while striking out one over his six innings.

Grant VerVoort took the loss giving up five hits, five earned runs and five walks while striking out four over his three innings.



Marinette Takes First Season Loss to Antigo

The Marinette Legion baseball team started their season strong Saturday by winning two in triangular competition. But that luck ran out Sunday as the guys from Antigo paid Marinette a visit and brought home with them the 6-2 win.

When looking at the batting stats this one was pretty close as Antigo mustered up six hits in 28 at bats while Marinette followed close behind with six hits in 26 at bats.

As far as hitting was concerned this was an even match up. Where the difference began to show itself was in the book where five stranded runners were left on base over seven innings. Antigo on the other hand only had three left stranded. The other back breaker was in the error column.

Antigo got rolling in the second inning when Wade Farmer slugged a double to centerfield. Nick Marshall followed with a single while Logan Doering loaded the bases with a walk.

Corbin Krueger took full advantage of the bases loaded situation, crushing a deep hit to center field for two runs scored. Doering made it three before the end of the inning, crossing the plate off a past ball.

The third saw Antigo further their lead by one thanks to a Brady Tatro walk and a bases loaded hit b y pitch that brought hime home. Sebastion Noskowiak got the RBI after being hit.

Marinette failed to find a stride over the middle goings of the game as the second, third and fourth innings were all one-two-three.

Antigo scored its final runs of the evening in the fifth. Farmer walked followed by Marshall who reached off an error. Both went home on another error to bag the 6-0 lead.

At this point it may have appeared Marinette was going to get slapped with a shutout, but no, that did not happen. And it was due to some timely hitting by Riely Reif and Jack Farley.

After the lead off hitter was called out, Reif slugged a single to right field. He was followed by Farley with a huge hit to deep right for a double. Both runners kicked on the afterburners and crossed the plate off a Trevor Bloch double to deep left.

The two runs ensured the Marinette boys wound not be sent home with a goose egg but a tough Antigo defense made sure that the Marinette boys could not take the lead.

At the plate Marinette was led by the efforts of Bloch who finished the evening two for three with two RBIs. Reid and Farley both were one for three with a run while Tyler Fayta went one for two.

Antigo's Farmer was one for two at the plate with two runs to boot while teammate Cody Urban posted a two of four showing.

The mound win was secured by Antigo's Noskowiak with five strikeouts to his name. He allowed six hits, two earned runs and no walks over his seven innings.

Marinette's Bretl was saddled with the loss as he allowed six hits, six runs (three earned) and five walks over his five and two thirds innings. He ended the evening with six strikeouts. Coming in at relief was Kyler Kruse who allowed no hits, no run and no walks while striking out two in his one and a third innings.



Red Wave Takes Two From Bark River-Harris

The Menominee Red Wave won a pair over Bark River-Harris on Monday night to start the season 2-0.

The Wave won the first game 10-3 behind solid pitching and a couple of hot bats.

Bryce Tharp went six innings, allowing three unearned runs on five hits and three walks, striking out five.

At the plate, Matthew Delfosse had two hits and three RBIs and Tharp heped his own cause with a two-RBI double. Kyle Struve also had two hits and an RBI.

In the second game, Menominee wasn't able to hang 10 runs on the board, but they did get some really good pitching from Jason Janquart, which limited the offense they needed.

Janquart shut down the Bark River-Harris squad with seven innings of one-run ball, allowing just six baserunners to reach base, while striking out six.

Menominee scored their three runs in the first four innings and it was plenty to hold Janquart's lead.

At the plate, he also had two hits, including a triple. Delfosse added another hit to his daily total as well.
