Nationals Eliminated from State Championship Tournament
The Nationals won't have an opportunity to atone for Wednesday's difficult 7-6 loss to Sheboygan in the opening game of the Wisconsin Class A State Baseball Championship Tournament. Rain in West Bend and Sheboygan forced the postponement all four games scheduled for Friday, including the Nats game scheduled for 9pm vs West Bend.
With only Saturday and Sunday remaining to complete the tournament at Sheboygan, it was decided that the double elimination tournament be compressed, knocking out the four teams that lost Wednesday night and proceeding forward with the four teams that won.
The revised schedule has Sheboygan playing Kenosha at 1130 on Sat and Pewaukee playing Sussex at 2pm. The losers of those games play at 430pm. Loser is eliminated. The winners of early Sat games play at 7pm.
On Sunday the winner of the 430pm Sat game plays the loser of the 7pm Sat game at noon. Loser of that game is eliminated. The two remaining teams then play for the championship at 230pm. A second game will be played at 5pm, if necessary.
The Nationals will conclude the 2017 season with a team get together on Sunday August 6 and begin looking toward their 43rd season in 2018.
