Prep Baseball: Ashwaubenon beats Sheboygan North

By

Too many errors and defensive miscues cost Sheboygan North’s baseball team on the road Monday.

The Golden Raiders watched Ashwaubenon sprint ahead on a seven-run fourth inning in what turned into a 12-8 loss for North.

“We had some untimely walks and some errors today,” said North coach Chris Wright, whose team took the Fox River Classic Conference loss despite out-hitting the Jaguars 15-9. “Our defense didn’t exactly help us today.”

Ashwaubenon scored five runs early, but North drove in three runs in the top of the fourth inning to narrow the gap to 5-3 midway through the game.

In the bottom of that inning, though, Ashwaubenon took advantage of three walks — and knocked four hits to boot — to add seven runs to the board and “kind of blow it open,” Wright said.

“It was just one bad inning,” the coach said.

North (14-6, 8-5 FRCC) added four more runs in the sixth inning and another in the seventh, but couldn’t bridge the game.

Matt Theobald led North’s offense. He batted 3-of-3 and drove in two of North’s eight runs.

“Today is just disappointing,” said Wright, whose team is winding down its regular season schedule but has already secured a No. 3 seed in its Division 1 playoff bracket. Crosstown rival Sheboygan South is a sixth-seed. “We want to be playing our best baseball when the season ends, and you know right now, we’ve got to turn that around.”
