Sheboygan South swept Manitowoc Lincoln in a baseball doubleheader last week. But those games didn’t count. Tuesday’s rematch did.
And the Ships’ bats showed up. Five players had multiple hits in a 7-5 victory over the Redwings at home.
The Fox River Classic Conference cut its schedule due to so many early spring postponements, making last week’s non-conference contests. South took both of them.
Tuesday’s game counted in the FRCC standings.
“It was nice to come back and beat them when it counts,” said Lincoln coach Bruce Steinbecker.
Byron Anderson, Nick Spurney, Ben Kohls, Devon Seiler and Brian Tlachac each had two hits, and all but Anderson knocked in a run for Lincoln (4-4, 2-1 FRCC).
Carl Samz doubled for Lincoln.
Anderson, meanwhile, got the win on the mound, working the final four innings of relief and allowing one earned run.
Down 7-5 with two outs in the seventh, South (1-2 FRCC) had runners on second and third base, but Anderson struck out the final batter to end the game.
Man. Lutheran 12, Mishicot 1 (5)
Leading 2-1 in the bottom of the third inning, host Lutheran scored nine runs to end the Olympian Conference game early.
Mishicot was held to two hits as Jeff Stueck was 1-for-2 with a run and Kyle Haskell was 1-for-2 with an RBI.
Peter Menges earned the win, allowing one unearned run with two walks and six strikeouts.
Stueck took the loss, throwing 21/3 innings and allowing eight earned runs on 13 hits and three walks with a pair of strikeouts. Tanner Orth pitched 12/3 innings of relief, allowing two unearned runs on three hits and two walks with two strikeouts.
Mishicot committed six errors in the game and offensively Lutheran was led by Marshall Stanelle who was 3-for-4 with two runs.
Also for Lutheran, Garrett Buch was 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI, Ethan Hillmer was 2-for-2 with two runs, two walks and two RBI and Menges who was 2-for-3 with two RBI. Adam Englebrecht was also 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI for Lutheran.
Reedsville 7, Valders 1
At Valders, Elliot Ebert earned the complete-game win, striking out seven, walking four and allowing five hits for the Panthers in Olympian Conference play.
The Panthers did not commit and error and had seven hits as Brock Gilsdorf was 1-for-3 with a double and Ebert went 3-for-4 with a double. Meanwhile, a Reedsville error led to three unearned runs in the third inning, breaking open a 2-1 game.
Brandon Ertl took the loss, going five innings. He led the team going 2-for-3. Kade Fochs knocked in the Vikings’ run.
Brillion 6, Roncalli 2
Five Roncalli fielding errors helped lead to four unearned runs for Brillion in the Lions’ OC win.
