Offense, Defense Come Up Big in Rout of Green Bay

Posted: June 14, 2022

If the A’s had some pent-up frustration from last weekend, they took it out on Greater Green Bay.

After a weekend that saw them go 1-2 and fall to 2-7 in the Wisconsin State League after errors cost them in an extra-innings game against league-leading Lombard, the A’s put together a complete game performance on the road Tuesday night, shutting out Green Bay 12-0.

Scoreless through three, the A’s offense erupted for three in the fourth and six in the fifth to blow the game open, and close it off with three more in the top of the seventh to secure the run-rule victory. The win counts in both the Wisconsin State League and Northeastern Wisconsin Baseball League standings.

Harry Steldt (UW-Stevens Point alum) hit his team-leading fourth home run of the season in the seventh and drove in five while five other A’s had multi-hit games, including Riley Palmquist (Marian University) who had three hits, and University of Michigan recruit Johnathan Kim, who was 2-5 with a single and double with a run scored in his A’s debut.

Noah Imrie (Marian University alum) made his fifth appearance of the season, going six innings and only allowing three hits while pitching a shutout before Dawson Selvoski (Ripon College) finished things off in the seventh.

Up next for the A’s, the Menasha Macs come to Wildwood Park Wednesday for a Northeastern Wisconsin Baseball League game. It’s Strike Out Cancer Night in partnership with the Sheboygan County Food Bank – fans who donate a jar of peanut butter will get a free general admission ticket to the game.

Thursday is the annual Midwest Communications Night with prize giveaways all night long courtesy of Midwest Communications. Free tickets are available at their offices. The Kindred Heart Families Donation Drive that was postponed Monday has been rescheduled for Sunday, June 19. Fans can get a free ticket to the game with a donation of new kids socks or underwear. It’s also a Meijer Family Day where kids ages 12 and under get in free, plus player autographs will be available and kids can run the bases at the conclusion of the doubleheader with Kenosha.

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