Nats and Addison, IL Braves split DH
The West Allis Nationals have been nothing if not consistent this season. Once again the team squared off for a DH against a Wisconsin State League opponent and once again the team split a DH, losing game one 11-5 before taking the nightcap by a score of 6-4.
The Nats fell into an early hole in game one and were never able to recover. Matt Richer led the offense with 2 hits including a double and 2 RBI. Brian Huntzinger, playing on a bad wheel, added a hit and 2 RBI.
Game two's results were more pleasing for those who consider themselves fans of the squad/club/posse/cult. Tom Starck battled 7 innings with his command, but made big pitches when it mattered to earn the W. Kyle Kalkopf, Matt Richer, Aaron Goecks, and Curt Pryal all had multiple hit games for the locals. Richer and Pryal each knocked in two runs.
Next week is busy with a game Thursday night in Kenosha versus the Kings, Saturday morning in Sheboygan versus the DePere Dodgers, and a Sunday afternoon twinbill in Sheboygan versus the Addison, IL Braves and the Lombard, IL Orioles.
