Failure to generate scoring attack leaves CG-Belgium with defeats that drop its overall record to near .500

Cedar Grove-Belgium’s lumber went into baseball slumber last week, capped by a shutout loss to one of the Rockets’ biggest rival.
Oostburg won, 6-0, on Friday despite a good outing from pitcher Bradley Katte.  The freshman went six innings and allowed three earned runs on five hits and walked four.
“He’s been a really nice pitcher for us. He’s looking really good,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Tom Race said.
Senior Josh Weiss pitched the seventh inning and allowed three earned runs on three hits and a hit batter. He struck out one.
At the plate, the Rockets couldn’t come through. Justin Theune went 3-for-3, and Jason von Heimburg had one hit.
Sheboygan Falls 5-1, CG-Belgium 4-0
The Rockets came up one run short in each game of a nonconference doubleheader on the road June 28.
“We didn’t play our best. They were good games. We just made too many mistakes,” Race said.
The Falcons earned a walk-off victory in the first game on a bases-loaded bunt. Von Heimburg came from the mound to field the ball but bobbled it as he flipped the ball home.
JOSH WEISS s2060917026 4C“We made a good play on it. It was a great bunt. We just couldn’t get him,” Race said.
Von Heimburg relieved Tyler Kraus, who went the first six-plus innings. After hitting a batter and walking the next in the seventh inning, Kraus was pulled.

Solid pitching, steady defensive work pave way to league win over Nicolet

Last Friday’s game against Nicolet wasn’t a great matchup on paper for the Port Washington on paper baseball team.
Host Port came into the game 2-13 in the North Shore Conference and Nicolet was 7-8.
This time, however, the Pirates’ small ball, sharp pitching and solid defense was well executed.
Port honored its three seniors — Pat Knowski, Cody Sadler and Tanner Orten — with a 3-1 upset victory.
TANNER ORTEN s2060117170 4CNoah Prom pitched six innings and Knowski finished the seventh in an impressive win.
“He (Prom) was able to get out of some jams. The defense was making plays behind him,” Port coach C.J. Koehler said.
In the third inning, Prom worked out of a bases-loaded jam, and in the sixth he had the bases juiced with no outs.
Prom only allowed one run and got some defensive help behind him. At third base, Zach Uselding fielded a grounder and gunned a throw home to stop a run.

Young Ozaukee baseball team tries to stay positive despite struggles against Random, other tough foes

Ozaukee High School players are glad to be playing baseball again this season, but last Friday was one game the Warriors wish they could forget.

Against Big East Conference leader Random Lake on Friday, youth and inexperience showed. The Rams hammered the Warriors, 26-0, in a five-inning contest.
