Marinette Battles Gladstone for Firecracker Championship

The Marinette Post 39 boys bagged this years Firecracker Tournament Championship Sunday with their defeat of the Gladstone boys 6-2.

One of the more outstanding moments of this game was what was happening on the mound for Marinette. A JV pitcher got the call up and he certainly did not disappoint. In fact Marinette Legion may have just uncovered another gem pitcher in the call up of Peshtigo's Nolan Lemke.

It was Lemke's first time on the mound this season for the Post 39 varsity boys and he came away from his first voyage with the mound win.

After some tough play over the first two and a half innings the Marinette boys found a crease in the Gladstone defense.

Riley Reif was struck by a pitch for a base while Tyler Fanta bunted for a base. Trevor Bloch went to first off an error while Austin Marquardt brought in the first run of the game off a sacrifice fly to deep center. Adam Wahl allowed up with an RBI single to left field while Matt Osterberg made it a three run game when he sent a shot toward left field and reached off the error.

Gladstone responded with a Cody Frappes run during the fourth and a Zach Hanson run during the fifth to make it 3-2.

But a solid hitting Marinette crew did all they could during the fifth and were rewarded with a sizable late game lead.

Bloch made it on after being struck by a pitch. Marquardt reached on a fielders choice and Wahl slammed a double. Marquardt scored off a wild pitch while Nelson brought in the other two off a single to left field.

Thanks to some good pouching and solid defense the Marinette boys locked the Galdstone boys out of any comeback.

Marinette's new slinger, Lemke ended his first day on the mound by allowing four hits, two earned runs and seven walks. Not too bad of a day for the variety newcomer.

Cooper Cavadeas took the loss allowing six hits, six runs (five earned) and mo walks while striking out three.

At the plate Marinette's Wahl was two for two with one run and one RBI while Nelson was two for three with two RBIs.

Galdstone's Hanson was one of one with one run.



Marinette Post 39 Wins M&M Firecracker Showdown

The Marinette Post 39 boys established M&M supremacy last Saturday when they took down the Menominee Red Wave 11-0 during the annual Firecracker Tournament.

It certainly didn't take long for the Marinette boys to begin to put this one away, in fact they pretty much had it in hand after a demoralizing first inning.

That first inning saw Marinette's Austin Marquardt slap a double to center field to start the games base running. Adam Wahl brought him home on a single to left field. Rylie Nelson followed with a base after being hit while Nick Date slugged in Wahl with a single to center field.

Kyler Kruse walked for an RBI while Riley Reif

hit a single for two RBIs and the early 5-0 lead.

All game long Menominee struggled to produce anything at the plate and it showed in the stat sheets as three of the five innings were 1-2-3.

Marinette's Wahl and Nelson both skirted home off a Daye single to left during the second inning while Marquardt brought in Reif during the fourth off a sacrifice fly to deep center. Wahl ended his evening with an RBI off a single.

Mason Risner and Sam Gressel both scored during the fourth and final inning for Marinette.

Red Wave Slip Past Manitowoc in Firecracker Opener

The Red Wave took to Pedersen field in Marinette Friday night to take on Manitowoc's Legion team, who they battled back and forth with for a 2-0 win.

The 2-0 win can be boiled down to one game element, the pitching. The quickly evolving duel kept hitter at bay while great defense on both ends had runners unsure of their baseline line endeavors.

The scoring began in the second inning when Keagan Monroe keyed onto a Chase Kersten pitch for the Red Wave. Monroe was fast and quick to make decisions as he found himself with his foot firmly planted on second base thanks to a Manitowoc error.

Mound Ace Matthew Delfosse made sure he wouldn't be leaving the mound with any qualms about the way he played. The hard nosed rubber armed Red Waver allowed only five hits, which his defense made sure would not make it home, no runs and one walk over his seven innings. He also struck out five Manitowoc would be hitters.

Menominee improved the lead to 2-0 during the fifth inning off a Jimmy Coldren led off the inning with a single and crossed in during Alex Hansen's single for that winning 2-0 readout.

Delfosse was the evenings winning pitcher doing so with a shutout to his name. The losing pitcher was Manitowoc's Chae Kersten who allowed four hits, two runs, two walks and five strikeouts.

At the plate Menominee was led by Hansen who was one for two with an RBI. Kyle Porath finished one for three along with Coldren. Kyle Struve posted a one for four day.

Manitowoc's Andrew Ebelhart was two for four.

The Escanaba boys may have came into the tournament with high hopes but those hopes were quickly dashed by a relentless Marinette Post 39 Legion team who shutdown the Esky boys 10-0 over five innings.

The shutout win had everything to do with great pitching from the Marinette mound. Leading that charge was Matt Eldridge who gave up a mere three hits over five innings pitched. He walked four as well while blasting five Esky hitter with strikeouts.

The rout began to rear its head during the second inning when Marinette's Nick Daye led off with a base he got after being hit by a pitch. Rylie Nelson followed with a single to shallow left. Both runners shot home off an error. Rylie Reif reached off an error as well and skirted his way around the base, touching home thanks to a couple serious overthrows.

The 3-0 lead was improved upon over the fourth inning with two more Marinette runs. Brandon Eick got on to led off the inning thanks to a dropped third pitch and some quick feet while Trevor Bloch got a base off a double to deep left. Adam Wahl hit a sacrifice fly to bring in Eick while Matt Osterberg slammed a single to center for the Bloch score.

The fifth and final inning saw Jack Farley reach base off a single to right field. Riley Reif was struck by a pitch while Eick walked to load the bases. Bloch got an RBI off a walk while Austin Marquardt crushed a shot to deep center for a double and two RBIs. What followed with a two RBI single to right field, giving Marinette the 10-0 lead.
