Dodgers Hold Off A’s 2-1

Pitcher Griffin Summers (Green Bay, Wis.) grabbed his second win of the year on Monday night, going seven innings, allowing only five hits and striking out eight in the Dodgers 2-1 victory over Sheboygan.

Pitcher Griffin Summers (Green Bay, Wis.) grabbed his second win of the year on Monday night, going seven innings, allowing only five hits and striking out eight. Caleb Willems (Luxemburg, Wis.) got the save, striking out two and not allowing a baserunner.

Summers has a two-game ERA of 1.385, striking out 15 batters in 13 innings. So far, so good for the 19-year-old right hander.

“It was a big time game, and this is one of the big conference games,” said Summers. “I put a lot of trust in Buck (Kyle Kosobucki).”

Kosobucki (De Pere, Wis.) and Summers have played together for four years between the Wisconsin Rhinos and Wisconsin Mash club teams. The chemistry is important for the Winona State catcher and the Judson University infielder/pitcher.

Offensively, Hunter Staniske (De Pere, Wis.) was 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run, while Sam Kohnle (Kewaunee, Wis.) and Noah Robinson (Green Bay, Wis.) were each 2-for-4.

John VanderPloeg took the loss for the A’s, going six innings and striking out nine.

Ryan Fields RBI double in the top of the fourth was the only run the A’s could muster.
