A’s clinch 2nd seed in Langsdorf League playoffs
Posted: July 23, 2012
The Sheboygan A’s swept a doubleheader from the Genoa City Red Dogs at Wildwood Park Sunday afternoon by dominating scores of 8-3 and 13-5 to clinch second place in the Langsdorf in their first year of competition in that highly respected circuit.
Finishing second means the A’s miss the first rungs of the stepladder play off and will play the survivor of the 5 vs. 4, winner vs. 3 games on Saturday, July 28 at Wildwood Park. Gametime has yet to be determined.
The A’s are currently 11-6 in the league.
Now they must quickly turn their attention to the log-jammed Northeastern Wisconsin League. The A’s are one of four teams in a virtual tie for the league lead. Menasha, Green Bay, Oshkosh and the A’s are all are 3-over-.500 but the A’s lead the pack in losses. That means they must win out and get some help against 5-loss Menasha to finish first.
The A’ (10-7) play Green Bay (9-6) tonight at Wildwood Park. First pitch is 7:30 p.m.
On Sunday, the A’s came from a 2-0 deficit to score a run in the second inning, three in the third and four in the fourth to cruise to the 8-3 win. Chad Langley was 3-for-4 and Tim Patzman and Justin hunt had two hits to lead the win. Derek Loomans went the route for the win.
In Game 2, Patzman had three hits including a 2-run home run and added a sacrifice fly to lead the way. Mitch Gardner was the winning pitcher.
Brandon Winfield will start tonight against Green Bay.
On Saturday, the A’s lost a doubleheader to Wisconsin State League leading Lombard, 11-0 and 9-2.
