Sheboygan A's Baseball

League-Leading Green Bay Strengthens First Place Hold with Win Over A’s

Posted: July 19, 2016

Winning out this week just became a critical issue for the weary Sheboygan A’s, who gave and lost scoring opportunities with mental errors and physical disability to deliver key hits had game-changing results and helped Green Bay to a 5-3 victory.

The result leaves Green Bay with a 13-3 record and, barring a complete fade, in near-clinch position. Menasha follows at 9-5, Sheboygan at 9-6. The race is for the top two spots which will receive byes in the Northeastern Wisconsin Baseball League playoffs that start in August 1.

Menasha is in town tonight to play the A’s in a critical tussle tonight. Game time is 7:30 PM and it’s the Mardi Gras celebration featuring Bourbon Street Pub‘s gumbo and jambalaya. That game is the second of five NEWBL games the A’s will play this week. On Wednesday they host Oshkosh, on Thursday they travel to Appleton, on Friday they host Manitowoc and then comes the big weekend.

On Saturday Mike Johnson will join the Sheboygan A’s Hall of Fame and Sunday the A’s will host a reunion of the 1991 championship team while wearing throwback uniforms. Addison is in town for a 4-game set.

Last night Green Bay took a 3-0 lead after two innings. The A’s battled back to tie at three after seven. A balk and an error helped the Macs break the tie to in their half of the seventh. The A’s had their chance in the ninth, loading the bases on three hit batsman, but they couldn’t get the key hit. The game was the clubs 14th game in the last 11 days, and they do not have a day off until next week Wednesday. That stretch includes the four games in two days this upcoming weekend.

The A's have helped develop more than 43 players that have reached professional baseball, including 2002 World Series Champion Jarrod Washburn (Anaheim Angels).
