A’s Drop 7-1 Decision to Kenosha
Posted: August 5, 2021
Sheboygan, WI – The Kenosha Kings knocked off the Sheboygan A’s 7-1 in the Wisconsin State League’s step-ladder qualifier for the State Tournament.
The good news? It didn’t matter.
That’s not to say the game didn’t matter. But for the A’s, who have an automatic bid in the State Tournament as the hosts of the tournament, the end result wasn’t as important.
A’s Manager Tim Moyer utilized 13 position players and four pitchers in the game to help tune everyone up for the State Tournament, coming off a five-day break.
Making just his seventh appearance of the season, Dawson Selvoski got the start on the mound for the A’s. After a successful six-pitch first inning, Selvoski got into a bit of trouble in the second after a dropped third strike allowed a runner to reach, a single plus an error led to a run, a two-run home run, and another run scored on an error equaled a four-run inning for the Kings. From there, Noah Imrie, Phil Schmit, and Mac Doherty each saw action on the mound.
The Wisconsin Class A State Tournament gets underway Saturday at noon when the A’s host the Appelton Legends in the four-team double-elimination tournament. The Menasha Macs will take on the winner of the West Allis-Kenosha game tonight at 2:30 PM Saturday.
