Jordan Meyer kept the Ozaukee bats in check while his offense did the rest as the No. 10 Kiel baseball team upset No. 7 Ozaukee 15-2 in six innings on Wednesday in the WIAA State summer baseball regional semifinal.
The game, which was postponed due to inclement weather on Tuesday, started out with the Raiders (8-18-1) holding a slim 2-1 lead after three innings before Kiel’s offense erupted for 13 runs over the final three. The decisive inning came in the top of the sixth, when the Raiders scored six runs including four before the Warriors recorded an out.
Meyer finished with eight strikeouts and one walk in five innings of work. Of Ozaukee’s (11-11) two runs, only one was earned compared to all 15 Kiel runs.
Nick Walsh paced the Raiders’ offense with a game-high four RBI while going 2-for-4 at the plate and scoring twice. Four other players for Kiel had at least two hits — Meyer (2-for-4), Terren Driscoll (2-for-3) and Cole (2-for-3) and Carter Voelker (2-for-4).
The Voelkers would score a total of five combines runs with Cole coming around three times and Carter twice while teammate Nathan Pieper also scored two runs.
Kiel looks to continue its postseason run when it travels to take on No. 2 Sheboygan Falls (13-10) on Friday. The Raiders won two-out-of-three against the Falcons this season although Falls lone victory came at home.
