Issue Date: June 28, 2018
Marinette's Legion squad split a pair at Escanaba's Gregg Johnson/Al Erickson tournament over the weekend, defeating Sault Ste. Marie but falling to De Pere in a tough loss.
Against Sault Ste. Marie, Trey Bretl fired a one-hitter over six innings, striking out seven and allowing just two walks to go with the one hit.
Sam Gressel doubled for Marinette. Matt Osterberg, Brandon Eick and Jack Farley each had singles on the day as well.
In the second game, Marinette again had good pitching, with Matt Eldredge throwing 5 2/3 innings of two-run ball. He allowed five hits and walked three, striking out one.
The performance wasn't enough, however. After De Pere scored in the bottom of the first to start with a bang, Marinette countered with a run in the top of the second. The teams were at a stalemate until the sixth, when De Pere took the lead.
Bretl had two hits against De Pere. Eick doubled in the game, while Mason Risner, Rylie Nelson and Trevor Bloch had hits.
Nelson scored the one Marinette run on the game when Eick doubled.
Red Wave Suffers First
Loss of the Season
The Menominee Red Wave took its first loss of the season Wednesday against Marquette, doing it in heartbreaking fashion.
Menominee tied things up at one in the top of the seventh, but Marquette scored in the bottom half of the inning to send the Menominee players back down M-35 with a sour taste in their mouth.
Jason Janquart had two hits and an RBI single in the top of the seventh. Matt Delfosse and Kyle Porath each had two hits apiece as well.
Menominee is now 6-1 overall this season and 3-1 in league play.
