Sheboygan A's Baseball

Kings shutdown A’s

Posted: June 14, 2013

A gritty, determined, but short-handed Sheboygan A’s crew fell to the front-running Kenosha Kings by an 11-1 score in Kenosha Thursday night.

The loss drops the A’s record to 6-5 as they prepare for their 5-game weekend. The A’s host Genoa City tonight in the resumption of Fish Fryday Night and then host the defending Wisconsin State League champion Lombard for four games on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. Saturday is Hall of Fame night when the club will induct Jason Bischoff into its Hall of Fame and Sunday is Alumni Day when the A’s are hoping to see former players from past years at the game.

On Thursday night, Taylor Ditter gave the A’s their third straight good start holding the talented Kings to just one run on three hits through five innings. But in the sixth, the combination of it being the Kings third time through the order and Ditter’s beginning to tire enabled Kenosha to take control. With Ditter being the only pitcher on the bus the A’s had to turn to position players to take the ball and the route was on.

Cole Heili had two hits for the A’s and Grant Evens drove in the only run with a clutch 2-out, fourth inning single that gave the A’s a 1-0 lead.
