Sheboygan North loaded the bases in the top of the sixth inning, but three straight strikeouts left all three runners stranded.
Ashwaubenon held on for a 3-1 Fox River Classic Conference win at home Tuesday after scoring a run in the bottom of the first inning and adding two more in the fifth.
“We had our chances,” North coach Chris Wright said, noting the Golden Raiders (2-4, 0-4 FRCC) stranded eight runners in the game.
Andy Seymour hit a sacrifice fly to bring Ben Van Veghel home for North’s only score of the day in the fifth inning.
North plays Sheboygan South on Thursday in an intra-city rivalry game.
Bay Port 7, Sheboygan South 2
The Pirates scored four runs in the seventh inning to break open a game that had been close to give South its first loss of the season.
AJ Guitierrez scored South’s first run off a Carter Amundsen sacrifice fly in the third inning, and Robert Hoffmann later singled to bring in Tyler Zietz and cut the Redwings’ deficit to just one run in the fifth inning.
South (3-1, 3-1 FRCC) couldn’t get any closer than that, though, and watched the game slip away in the decisive seventh inning.
Alex Feudner, Guitierrez and Hoffmann each had a hit to help lead South’s offense.
