Seymour Says No To Peshtigo in Regional-Semi
The Seymour Thunder hosted the Peshtigo Bulldogs for a division two regional semi-final Tuesday night which they took by way of a narrow 2-1 margin.
A heartbreaking loss for the Bulldogs, o doubt, but a hard fought game none the less.
With both teams defenses playing exceptionally well its nbc wonder the score remained so low.
Seymour scored one run in the first inning when lead off hitter Yolz was hit by a pitch. A few hitter later, he skirted home for the 1-0 lead.
Peshtigo tied things up during the top of the seventh when Darren Dionne reached off an error and was brought in during Travis Plym's at bat.
But a single Thunder run in the bottom of the seventh spelled defeat for the Bulldogs. That last run was tallied by Seymour's Cornell, who reached first on an error, advanced on a wild pitch and scored for the win.
"I'm very proud of our team and what we accomplished this year. Today leaves a bitter taste in our mouths because it was a winnable game," said Peshtigo head coach Neal Henrigillis. "But we never gave up and our guys battled to the very end." "We have to give Seymour credit they had a good game, their pitcher was tough as nails and their catcher threw out 3 guys stealing they really limited what we do best as a team today." "At the beginning of the year as a team we set some goals; win conference (we did), win a regional game (we did). Today we proved to ourselves and to other teams in our regional that they can't overlook Peshtigo baseball." "Our four seniors Brock Bero, Riley Reif, Mitchell Ahrens, and Trevor Bloch I can't say enough about them as people. They are great young men and will be successful in life and that's what matters most. They've given a lot to Peshtigo Baseball and I'm happy i can say I've coached them."
At the plate Dionne was one of two with one run while Trevor Bloch and Nick Nelson both went one of three.
Dionne took the mound loss allowing one walk, one hit and one earned run.
Reif Leads Bulldogs Past Marines in Tourney Play
A big day from Riley Reif helped propel the Peshtigo Bulldogs to an 8-2 win over Marinette in Thursday's playoff matchup between the two familiar foes.
Reif went 3-for-3 on the day, smashing a home run and doubling for the Bulldogs. Nick Nielson went 2-for-4 with a double.
The Bulldogs scored a run in the first inning, but Marinette quickly took a 2-1 lead in the second on a two-RBI single from Tyler Fayta, who had three hits in the game.
Those would be Marinette's last runs of the game, however. Reif homered in the third to even things up, and it was all Bulldogs from there. A Marinette error started things off for the Bulldogs in the fifth, as Nielson got two RBIs to regain the lead for Peshtigo.
Peshtigo left no doubt in the sixth, getting four runs from the bottom half of the order.
Bulldog Darren Dionne was the winning pitcher, going three scoreless. Matt Eldredge took the loss. In 5 1/3 innings, he allowed seven runs on seven hits and four walks. Only four of the runs were earned, as Marinette had a few errors that helped Peshtigo break things open.
