A’s Sweep Stars Saturday

Posted: July 7, 2024

The A’s continue to roll as they picked up a Northeastern Wisconsin Baseball League sweep of Greensville on Saturday, winning by scores of 6-0 and 9-4.

Brad Rindfleisch delivered an exceptional performance on the mound in game one, striking out 16 batters and allowing just two hits over seven innings for the win. The shutout was the team’s fourth shutout in the prior six games up until that point.

The A’s took an early lead in the bottom of the first inning, with Harry Steldt hitting into a ground out that scored Chase Hanselman. Alex Perez then followed that up with a RBI single as the A’s extended their lead to 2-0.

In the third, Jason Sims scored on a wild pitch, pushing the lead to 3-0.

The A’s would double up their lead in the fifth when Steldt hit a sac fly, Jacob Neese doubled in a run, and Rindfleisch helped his own cause with an RBI single. Steldt led the A’s with two RBIs, while Neese went 2-for-3 to lead the team in hits. Gus Walker added to his team lead in stolen bases with two swipes.

It was Greenville who got on the board first in game two, with a solo home run putting them up 1-0 in the second, but the A’s responded strongly in the bottom of the second when Jimmy Juergensen, at the plate with the bases loaded, cleared the base paths with a single to right field. Walker added another run with a sacrifice fly that scored Juergensen, putting the A’s ahead 4-1.

The A’s extended their lead in the third inning with contributions from Justin Schnell, Alex Ames, and Walker, each driving in a run. Hanselman’s sacrifice fly added another, making it 8-1. Steldt furthered the lead with a solo home run in the fourth inning.

Noah Imrie earned the win for the A’s, pitching seven innings and allowing four runs on six hits while striking out eight.

The A’s host the Chicago Warriors at 1 PM Sunday in a non-league doubleheader for Meijer Family Day. The 2024 season is presented by Meijer.
