Saukville Saints can’t quite come back

Offense finally plates a couple of runs in the ninth

A valiant comeback attempt fell short last Saturday for the Saukville Saints at Brownsville as they lost to the 49ers, 5-2.

Down, 5-0, heading into the ninth inning, the Saints’ offense finally came alive.

David Gent and Aaron Brockman each singled, and Mike Sherrick was hit by a pitch.

Mike Mueller hit an RBI single, and a Tom Dickmann infield grounder brought in another run.

An Eric Mueller grounder was traveling to right field before the 49ers’ second baseman snagged it and got the out at first to end the game.

Sherrick had two hits on the day.

Tom Hartwick started and pitched five innings, allowing four runs (two earned), five hits, whiffing four and walking one.

Sherrick pitched three innings and allowed one earned run and three hits, whiffing one and walking two.

Jason Abato got the victory for Brownsville, allowing two earned runs and eight hits in nine innings, whiffing six and walking one.

The Saints host the Kewaskum A’s at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
