Jason Strobel Named to Rock River All-League Team
November 10th - The Kewaskum A's had just one team member take home All-League honors at Saturday night's Rock River League Banquet held in Hustisford. Jason Strobel (.429 Avg, 27 Hits, 17 Runs, 2 2B's, 4 HR, 16 RBI's, 6 SB) was named to the Rock River All-League as an outfielder. Additionally Strobel finished as runner-up in the batting title race and in the MVP voting. Despite the lack of team members present on the All-League team, the A's stilll managed to take home their FOURTH consecutive Rock River Northern Division Title while finishing the year with a 30-15 record.
A's Season Comes to a Disappointing Close
August 23rd (box score) - The Kewaskum A's 2014 season came to a disappointing close on Saturday as they fell to the Rubicon Red Sox by a 3-1 score. The A's went ahead 1-0 in the 2nd inning on an Alex Nuelk RBI infield single, but wasted a huge opportunity to put up multiple runs in the inning as they couldn't cash in with the bases loaded and nobody out. This would come back to haunt the A's as Rubicon scratched across a run in the 4th and two more in the 5th to take a 3-1 lead. The A's scoring opportunities were limited the rest of the way as their season came to an end.
Adam Sarauer & Austin Sarauer were the lone bright spots offensively on the day as each went 2x4. Jim Ziegler (6IP, 2ER) picked up the loss on the mound, while Jake Panzer (3IP) tossed three innings of scoreless relief to keep the game within striking distance. The A's finished the season with a 30-15 record and took home their fourth straight Rock River North regular season title along with a runner-up finish in the SPAMtown Challenge (Austin, MN). The A's continue to have tremendous success on the field, but will look to make some minor adjustments this offseason in hopes of bringing home another Rock River Title.
**The Brownsville 49ers went on to defeat Rubicon in the Northern Division championship and also took home the Rock River Grand Championship winning the three game series against Neosho. The 49ers were the 'hump' the A's couldn't get over this year as they dropped three one-run games to them, including a tough 2-1 game in 10 innings in the divisional playoffs.
Kewaskum Suffers 2-1 Loss to Brownsville
The game remained tied into the 10th inning as the A's missed opportunity after opportunity to take the lead/win this one. Brownsville on the other hand took advantage of the chances presented and was able to push across a single run in the 10th for a 2-1 lead. Now down 2-1, the A's started the bottom of the 10th with a leadoff double by Jake Spaeth. After a groundout moved Spaeth to third it looked like the A's would have a great chance to tie this game up. However, for the third consecutive inning the A's could not get a runner in from third base with less than two outs and fell in a heart-breaker 2-1. The A's finished the game 1x13 at the plate with runners in scoring position and left a small village on the base paths.
Brad Young suffered the complete game loss on the mound despite not yielding an earned run (10IP, 8 Hits, 10K's), while Austin Sarauer 2x4 (2B, HR, RBI) and Jake Spaeth 2x4 (2 2B's) led the A's offensively. The good news for the A's is their season is not over and they have a chance to redeem themselves on Saturday as they will host the Rubicon Red Sox at 1:30pm in Kewaskum in a Rock River playoff elimination game. The winner of this game will advance to play Brownsville (in Brownsville) on Sunday looking to keep their season alive.
A's Top Hartford 4-2 in Divisional Playoffs
The score remained here until the 8th inning when Hartford pushed across two runs and put the tying run on third with two outs. The A's found themselves in a similar situation last year against Hartford in the opening round of the playoffs, up 1-0 in the 8th inning, only to see Hartford take a 2-1 lead and go on for the win., However this year the A's were able to get out of the inning with the lead and hung on for the win.
Jim Ziegler (9IP, 2ER, 8 Hits, 8K's) picked up the complete game win on the mound, while Jason Strobel 2x4 (2B) led the opportunistic A's offense.
A's Fall to Pewaukee in Tri-County Playoffs
Offense Shines Bright in Win Over Ashippun
The A's added six more runs in the 3rd inning to go up 11-0 as the big blow in this inning was a grand slam by Austin Sarauer. Ashippun cut the A's lead to 11-4 after four complete innings, but Austin Sarauer delivered again, this time with a two run home run in the 5th inning to push the lead back to 13-4. Brad Young settled in from there on the mound to pick up the complete game win (7IP, 4 ER, 6 Hits, 5 K's). The A's pounded out 18 hits on the day and were led by Adam Sarauer's 4x4 (2 2B's, RBI) day. Jordan Kuczynski 3x4 (RBI) and Austin Sarauer 3x5 (2 HR's, 2B, 7 RBI's) also had big days at the plate. Brad Young, Kurt Zagzebski and Nick Rosenthal all chipped in with two hits on the day as well.
The stage has now been set for the Rock River playoffs which get underway this coming weekend (August 16 & 17). The A's will host the defending league champion Hartford Hawks on Saturday at 1:30pm at Kiwanis Park. Win or lose, the A's will host a second playoff game on Sunday at 1:30pm as well (against either the winner/loser of the Brownsville/Rubicon game). Hope to see everyone there for a great weekend of baseball!!
Sarauer's Walk-off Single Gives A's Share of Division Title
In Saturday's contest both teams were relatively quiet through four innings as each starting pitcher came out of the gate sharp. Rubicon took advantage of a Kewaskum error in the 5th to push across a single run, but the A's responded right back in the bottom of the 5th with a two-out RBI single by Jake Spaeth to tie the game.
The A's took a brief 2-1 lead in the 6th with a two-out RBI single from Adam Sarauer, but another defensive miscue in the 7th led to another Rubicon run, tying the score at two apiece. The A's bounced right back again though as this time Kurt Zagzebski delivered with a two-out RBI single giving the A's a 3-2 lead. The score remained here until the 9th, when Rubicon came through with a one-out RBI single off of A's starting pitcher Jim Ziegler to tie the score at three.
Both teams went quiet in the next at-bat, but in the A's half of the 10th Brad Young worked a walk to lead-off the inning and advanced to second on a wild pitch. A strikeout and an intentional walk followed setting the table for Austin Sarauer who proceeded to smash a basehit to right to score the winning run and giving the A's their second consecutive walk-off win! Ziegler (10IP, 2ER, 7 Hits, 3K's) picked up the complete game win on the mound, while Jake Spaeth & Kurt Zagzebski led the A's at the plate with two hits and a RBI each.
A's Walk-off with win in 12 innings Against Hustisford
The crafty veteran Jake Panzer (11 IP, ER, 6 Hits, 5 K's) pitched well and kept the A's in the game until they finally got things rolling in the 7th inning. Jim Ziegler led off the inning with a double and advanced to third on a Nick Rosenthal groundout to bring up Ty Schill. Schill put together a great at-bat fouling off nearly 10 pitches with two strikes, before finally putting a ball in play that was able to score Ziegler from third. In the 8th inning a leadoff walk to Kurt Zagzebski and a double by Jason Strobel gave Kewaskum runners on 2nd and 3rd with nobody out. A strikeout followed, but Brad Boegel was able to deliver with a sacrifice fly to tie the game at two apiece.
The game would remain here until the 12th when Strobel reached via a walk and stole second giving the A's a chance for the win. Back-to-back strikeouts followed for the first two outs of the inning bringing up Jim Ziegler. This time the A's cashed in on the opportunity as Ziegler ripped a double to deep center to plate Strobel and give the A's the walk-off win. Ziegler (IP) snagged the win in relief and finished the night 3x5 (2 2B's, RBI) at the plate. Strobel finished 2x4 (2B), but the hero of the night might have been Jake Panzer who worked though 11 innings on the mound to keep the A's in the game throughout.
A's Clinch Rock River Playoff Berth With Win Over Lebanon
In Friday night's game Kewaskum took advantage of two big Lebanon errors to race ahead to a 5-0 lead after three innings. The A's began to pour things on in the 4th pushing across five runs in the inning. In the 4th Jordan Kuczynski and Jason Strobel each collected RBI singles, while Austin Sarauer delivered with a 2 RBI double. Kurt Zagzebski also added a sacrifice fly in the inning leaving the A's with a 10-0 lead after four complete innings. Jim Ziegler (7IP, 3 Hits, BB, 5 K's) made this lead hold up the rest of the way on the mound in picking up the complete game shutout. Offensively the A's were led by Kurt Zagzebski, Jason Strobel, Adam Sarauer, Jim Ziegler and Nick Rosenthal who all chipped in with two hits each on the night.
This win Friday set the table for a showdown with Rubicon on Sunday in Kewaskum, which got off to a great start for the A's who led 3-0 into the bottom of the 4th inning. However heavy heavy rains wiped out the remainder of the game and left the A's with a busy last week of the regular season. The A's have three Rock River League games remaining this week as they fight for their fourth straight Northern Division Title along with the #1 seed in the upcoming playoffs. The games this week get started on Wednesday as the A's will take on Hustisford at 7:30pm (at Hustisford). On Saturday the A's will host Rubicon again and then on Sunday the A's head to Ashippun for the Rock River regular season finale.
Struggles Continune Against West Bend, A's Fall 6-2
Earlier in the evening the A's finished up their Rock River League game with Hartford, a game that was tied 3-3 in the bottom of the 7th inning. In this game Hartford quickly broke the 3-3 tie with a two-out 2 RBI single in the bottom of the 7th which proved to be too much for the A's to overcome with just two innings to play. The A's look to get back on track tonight as they host the Lebanon Whitetails (in Brownsville, 7pm start) in a Rock River League contest. A win tonight would ensure the A's a spot in the upcoming Rock River playoffs and set the table a big showdown with Rubicon Sunday in Kewaskum for first place in the Rock River Northern Division. (box score)
A's Fall to Oconomowoc, Hustisford Game Rained Out

Sloppy Inning Dooms A's in Loss to Brookfield

A's Hold off Manistee (MI) in WABC Game
Muskego Walk's off With Win Over Kewaskum
Boegel pushed the A's lead to 3-0 in the 3rd inning as he again came through with another RBI single. It was all down hill from here for the A's though as a sloppy bottom of the 3rd inning allowed Muskego to tie the game at three apiece. Kewaskum could not muster much offensively the rest of the way and Muskego pushed across a run in the bottom of the 7th to walk-off with the win.

A's Stund by Slinger

This was as close as the A's would get though. Kewaskum made things interesting loading the bases in the 9th, but a game-ending double-play ended any comeback. Jim Ziegler (6IP, 4ER, 9 Hits) picked up the loss on the mound, while Young provided the only offense on the day. The A's return to the field Wednesday night as they take on the Muskego Impact at 8:45pm in West Bend in their first pool play game of the WI Amateur Baseball Classic (WABC).

The A's added three big insurance runs in the 8th, pushing the lead to 13-9 and were able to hang on from there.

Leading 4-0 in the 6th, Oconomowoc cut the A's lead to 4-3 as they pushed across 3 runs off of A's starter Alex Nuelk. This was as close as Oconomowoc would get though as Nick Whitty (3IP, Hit, 2 K's) came on in relief and shut down the Five-O's to pick up the save. Nuelk (6IP, 6 Hits, 3 ER, 2 K's) picked up his third win of the year on the mound. Alex Nuelk 2x4 (2B) and Joe Stubbe 2x4 (SB) each had multi-hit games on the night.

The game remained tied into the 8th, when Young began to run out of steam on the mound.

Jake Spaeth led off the 8th with a double and Brad Young followed with a single putting runners on the corners. After a flyout to centerfied, Kurt Zagzebski delivered with a RBI single to cut the deficit to 4-2, but the Chaska (MN) starting pitcher was able to get back-to-back strikeouts to end the game.
Young (7.1 IP, 4 Hits, 3 ER, 3 K's) took the loss on the mound, while Jake Spaeth 2x4 (2B) was the only 'A' with multiple hits.

A's Rally Late to Top Westmont (IL) in SPAMtown Challenge
Westmont (IL) pushed their lead to 4-2 in the 3rd with a solo homer and it looked like the A's might be in trouble in this one. However, winning pitcher Jim Ziegler (7IP, 7 Hits, 3 ER) settled in from here giving the A's a chance late for the comeback. The A's did just that cutting the lead to 4-3 in the 5th and tying it at four apiece in the 6th on Scott Carberry's RBI single.
