A’s Nip Saukville

Posted: July 2, 2011

A 4-run seventh inning that was capped by a perfectly executed double steal enabled the Sheboygan A’s to get past a gritty Saukville team by a 4-3 score Friday night.

With the score tied three, Shaun Wegner, who had singled, broke for second and stayed in the rundown long enouth to allow Ryan Schilter to scamper home with what proved to be the winning run.

Earlier in the inning Tim Patzman belted a long 2-run double and scored himself on an error to tie the game.

Wegner and Grant Berkovitz had two hits for the A’s.

Jake Ristow threw five strong innings of relief to earn the win. Will Madson escaped a bases-loaded jamin the ninth to get the save.

Saukville hit the A’s with two in the first and another in the third for a 3-0 lead that stood until the seventh.

Now 11-8 for the season, the A’s are idle over for the holiday weekend and travel to Manitowoc for their next game Tuesday night.
