Rockets remain a top team in the conference; young Ozaukee team loses to New Holstein

Cedar Grove-Belgium’s baseball team last week was shorthanded for a few reasons, and Random Lake took full advantage in a battle of Big East Conference leaders.
The Rockets lost, 5-2, on the road.
Jason von Heimburg went the distance, allowing two earned runs on seven hits and one walk. He struck out three. Von Heimburg, an all-conference pitcher last year, has an earned-run average of 2.33 this season.

Port able to compete with top-ranked West Bend West until breakdowns

    Save for one big inning, the Port Washington High School baseball team’s record would look much different.
    The Pirates lost 11 straight games this month, with one tied contest yet to be finished against Whitefish Bay due to darkness.
    The Pirates’ most recent loss came against a top-ranked team in the state, West Bend West, on the road Monday. The final score was 13-3, but Port was right in the ball game through four innings, only down 3-0, behind strong pitching from Pat Knowski.
  PORT SWING s3061317110 4C  It was a stark difference from the first time the teams collided, when the Spartans racked up 17 runs in the first four frames on June 7.
    “To be down 3-0 going into the fifth was definitely a positive,” coach C.J. Koehler said.
The Spartans, however, scored six in the bottom of the fifth and four in the bottom of the sixth to pull away.
    “They’re just solid one through nine,” Koehler said. “We only had one error, but they can just hit.”
    The Pirates got to Logan Rupnow in their half of the sixth, scoring all three of their runs.
    “They play so good defensively,” Koehler said of West.
    For Port, Marcus Schmitt went 1-for-3 with an RBI.
    “It was good to see the guys bounce back and definitely compete with West Bend West. Hopefully, we can build off of that this week,” Koehler said.
Cedarburg 10, Port Washington 4
    One big inning did Port in after holding a lead for nearly the entire game last Friday at home.

Grafton baseball team drops three straight, but Walton’s pitching a highlight

    Grafton High School baseball coach Brian Durst knows it’s a long season.
    It’s sure feeling that way for the Black Hawks after dropping three straight games, including a forgettable 14-0 Monday night debacle against Nicolet.
    Grafton had three hits and eight errors.
    “That’s always a possibility this time of year, playing a number of games back to back,” Durst said of a midseason slump.
    “As quickly as you can build momentum and get hot, you can also go the other way and fall into a little bit of a slump.
    “We’ve got to work through that, and the guys are.”
Ian Walton Grafton Pitcher s2061917034 4CNicolet scored six in the second and five in the fifth to run away with the game.
    Grafton’s highlight was pitcher Ian Walton allowing one run in 3-2/3 innings.
    “He’s showing that he can get varsity hitters out, and that can be a big boost down the stretch,” Durst said.
Kewaskum 9, Grafton 3
    Grafton’s offense struggled with only five hits at Kewaskum last Friday.
    With two outs in the seventh inning, Jack Pawlak clobbered a two-run home run. Adam Schnell scored on the play after drawing a walk.
    Grafton was down 7-1 after the third inning. Walton pitched the final three.
    “If there was anything promising about that game, it was Walton’s relief appearance,” Durst said.
Germantown 5, Grafton 4
    With the game tied, 4-4, in the sixth inning, Germantown used a single, double and sacrifice fly to take a one-run lead last Thursday.
    That left the road team with three outs left to tie. Germantown pitcher Jake Elgner struck out all three Black Hawks he faced in the seventh. He struck out seven of his final eight hitters.
    “He’s good. He’s throwing well and really shut us down at the end of the game,” Durst said.
