With upset victory over front-running Cedarburg, Grafton still has shot at first

The Cedarburg Mercs are still in the driver’s seat to win another Northern Division baseball championship, but it isn’t coming easily.

Second-place Grafton kept its slim title hopes alive last Sunday by rallying to upset the Mercs, 5-4, in a 10-inning Land O’ Lakes game.

Host Grafton, which improved its division record to 13-4, faced a 3-0 deficit entering the bottom of the seventh inning.

After the Express scored four times in the top of the frame to take a one-run lead, Cedarburg (14-2) tied the game in the eighth.

In the ninth, the Mercs loaded the bases, but Grafton ended the threat by turning a double play.

That set the stage for a 10th-inning comeback. After the Express loaded the bases on an error, intentional walk and infield single by Max Pruefer, the winning run scored on a wild pitch by reliever Taylor Piel.

Pitcher Zach Lauterbach held Grafton in check through the first six innings. But in the seventh, the Express broke through and scored their first run on a bases-loaded passed ball.

After Andrew Doring hit a two-run single, Mike Pruefer added an RBI double to put Grafton up, 4-3.

Cedarburg pulled even in the eighth on Lauterbach’s sacrifice fly.

Reliever Nick Wycklendt pitched the final three innings for the win.
