Baseball: Fond du Lac tops Lomira/Theresa; Campbellsport, New Holstein lose in postseason

By

Fond du Lac banged out 13 hits and barely escaped in the seventh inning to record a 7-6 American Legion baseball home win on Tuesday against Lomira/Theresa.

Logan Mertens was 3-for-3 and Fond du Lac (9-5) got two hits apiece from Eric Feldner, Jose Velez and Alex Theisen.

Dylan Bloch and Alex Brath were 2-for-4 for Lomira/Theresa (4-6), which tied the game in the top of the fifth only for Fond du Lac to score twice in the bottom half to take the lead for good.

L/T scored twice in the top half of the seventh and had runners on second and third, before Theisen struck out the final batter.

L/T hosts Jackson tonight at 5:30 p.m.

Elkhart Lake 7, Campbellsport 4

The Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah baseball team finished with one less hit and one more error than host Campbellsport on Tuesday, but the Cougars stranded 10 runners in its season ending loss.

The Resorters finished ahead in the stat that counts most, the score, with a 7-4 victory in a WIAA Summer baseball regional.

Nate Stahl had an RBI double in the Campbellsport sixth inning, but a pair of runs is all the Cougars pushed across when they left two runners aboard. They also left runners on second and third in the third and the bases loaded in both the fifth and seventh innings.

Dustin Salter also doubled for Campbellsport, which collected eight hits.

“We didn’t get the timely hit,” said Campbellsport coach Jerry Raether. “We got the hit up to that point, and got a couple runs in, but couldn’t get the real big inning going for us.”

Howards Grove 7, New Holstein 5

In another area game, New Holstein lost to Howards Grove, 7-5, to end the Huskies’ season.

The visiting Tigers scored five unearned runs in the top of the sixth, and held on for the victory. Dominic Probst took the loss for the Huskies.
