Kenosha Tops A’s in 10

Posted: June 30, 2011

For the second straight evening, the Sheboygan A’s wasted a solid pitching performance and gave away just enough runs to lose a ball game. The Kenosha Kings beat the A’s 5-4 in 10 innings in front of another good crowd at Wildwood Park. The loss leaves the A’s with a 10-8 record overall and a 4-3 mark in the State League.

Tim Patzman broke up a 0-0 game with a grand slam home run in the third inning but that was it for A’s scoring. Kenosha came right back with two in the forth, then added two more in the sixth to tie the game and won it in the 10th on two straight two-out hits. Paul Pulera got the game winning RBI.

Ryan Solberg added two hits to the Patzman offensive show.

The A’s squandered another good pitching performance, this time by Jack Archie, who pitched eight strong innings. Mitch Gardner took the loss. He got out of a 3-hit ninth inning jam, but couldn’t shut the door in the 10th.

For the second straight night, the A’s committed a number of physical and mental errors and last night were outhit 13-6. The club has now lost four of its last five game.

“Not to worry,” general manager Denny Moyer said. “This is a good team. They’ll come around.”

After a day off Thursday, the team hosts the Saukville Saints in Friday in Fish Fryday Night. The club is holding a bingo fundraiser tonight at Ss Cyril. First call is at 6:30 p.m.
