With two impressive wins, Grafton rolls into division finals against defending champion Cedarburg

A daunting challenge awaits them, but the Grafton Express are alive and well in the Land O’ Lakes baseball postseason.

By winning their first two games in the Northern Division playoffs, Grafton advanced to the division final against defending champion Cedarburg this weekend.


The host Express defeated Saukville, 6-1, in last Sunday’s semifinals, eliminating a foe that defeated them twice during the regular season.


Grafton took charge early in the rematch and was never in trouble. The Express grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first inning and stretched the margin to 4-0 in the third.


Fueling the three-run outburst were a double by Dustin Kesner, a single by Lance Keplinger and a wild pitch.


Kesner added a two-run single in the sixth inning, when the lead grew to 6-0.


Saukville scored its run in the eighth.


Max Pruefer had four hits for Grafton, which outhit the Saints, 11-3. Kesner added three hits.


Grafton pitcher Jordan Clark turned in an impressive complete-game effort, not allowing a hit until Cole Granrath singled in the sixth inning.


In Sunday’s other semifinal, top-seeded Cedarburg blanked Thiensville-Mequon, 2-0.


On Saturday, Aug. 17, Cedarburg will host Grafton in a division final at 1 p.m.


If Cedarburg wins, it will advance to the league’s grand championship playoffs next week.
