Late Grand Slam Powers Nationals Over A’s

Posted: July 17, 2020

If a failure to communicate was the problem in Cool Hand Luke’s chain gang, a failure to execute was the problem for the Sheboygan A’s Thursday night in their 8-3 loss to West Allis. The loss counts in both the Wisconsin State League as well as the Northeastern Wisconsin League.

The A’s took a first inning 1-0 lead, but that lasted only three innings and the A’s would never lead again. Four runs scored in Thursday’s game came from runners tagging on sacrifice fly balls.

Griffin Doersching’s grand slam home run was the final straw for the A ’s but game-long mistakes and misplays were already too much to overcome.

Brad Lovisa took the loss, lasting five innings. Ross Krist had two of the A’s five hits.

The club will try to get it together this weekend when they host the Addison Braves Saturday at 5 PM and again on Sunday at 1 PM in a pair of Wisconsin State League doubleheaders. The quartet of Peccioli, Reklaitis, Rindfleisch, and Schmitz is scheduled to start. The 2020 season is presented by Meijer.

The Sheboygan A's are members of the Wisconsin State League and Northeastern Wisconsin Baseball League. The A's have helped develop more than 43 players that have reached professional baseball, including 2002 World Series Champion Jarrod Washburn (Anaheim Angels). All Sheboygan A's home games are played at Wildwood Baseball Park in Sheboygan. Connect with the A's on FacebookTwitterInstagram and YouTube.
