MARSHFIELD – Wausau West exploded for seven runs in the first inning and never looked back, beating Marshfield 10-4 in a Wisconsin Valley Conference baseball game Tuesday at Jack Hackman Field.

The Warriors added three more in the second inning before Marshfield got its offense going, scoring once in the second and third innings, and two more times in the sixth, but couldn’t come all the way back from the big deficit.

Hunter Korger threw 5 1/3 innings of scoreless relief for the Tigers, striking out four.

“They started out on us fast,” Marshfield coach Jon Bauer said. “We kept at it and kept chipping away. Hopefully we can improve on few things before we get them again on Thursday.”

Braden Bohman, Jake Brueggen and Logan Jakobi each had RBIs for Marshfield.

Wausau West clinched at least a share of first place in the Wisconsin Valley Conference standings, improving to 10-1 (14-2 overall). Marshfield drops to 7-11 and 6-5 in the conference.

Marshfield plays at Wausau West on Thursday in its Wisconsin Valley Conference and regular-season finale. The Tigers open postseason play May 30 at home against New Richmond in a WIAA Division 1 regional semifinal.

MILWAUKEE – Marshfield High School graduates Daulton Varsho and Trevor Schwecke, both members of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee baseball team, each earned second-team all-Horizon League honors, the conference announced Tuesday.

Varsho, a first-team selection and the Horizon Player of the Year last season, was a second-team pick at catcher. The 2014 Marshfield grad is hitting a.366 (71-for-194) with 11 home runs, 39 RBIs, 47 runs scored, 11 doubles, six triples, and a .655 slugging percentage, all team-highs. The junior also has 10 stolen bases.

Schwecke, a 2016 Marshfield alum, was a second-team selection at shortstop and was named to the all-freshman team as well. Schwecke is batting .320 (33-for-103) with nine doubles, 13 RBIs and 19 runs scored for the Panthers.

Milwaukee (22-31) plays Northern Kentucky in the opening round of the Horizon League Tournament at Illinois-Chicago at 4 p.m. Wednesday. If Milwaukee wins, it would enter the double-elimination portion of the tournament and face No. 1 seed Illinois-Chicago on Thursady.

The tournament concludes Saturday with the winner guaranteed a spot in the NCAA Division I Tournament field.

WAUSAU – The Marshfield baseball team snapped a three-game losing streak with a sweep of a doubleheader at Wausau East on Thursday, winning 11-2 and 6-1.

Marshfield is now 7-9 overall and 6-3 in the Wisconsin Valley Conference. East falls to 1-17 and 0-10 in conference play.

Connor Jasurda struck out seven and did not walk a batter in a complete-game effort to earn the win in Game 1 for the Tigers. He also scored a pair of runs.

Marshfield led 4-1 after six innings before a seven-run explosion in the seventh put away the victory.

Jake Brueggen hit a home run and scored three times, and Conner Berry had three RBIs for Marshfield.

In Game 2, Hunter Korger grabbed the victory, striking out nine in five innings.

Ryan Krueger had three hits, Jared Klein had two hits and an RBI, and Brueggen had two hits and two RBIs for the Tigers.

“Two nice wins to keep us going in the conference race,” Marshfield coach Jon Bauer said. “Conner Berry and Braden Bohman had multiple hits and Jake Brueggen powered up a long ball for us in the first game. Connor Jasurda pitched it well to get us the ‘W’. Our defense did a very nice job.

“In the second game, Hunter Korger pitched it well and Logan Jakobi did a nice job finishing the game. Our defense was strong again to keep us in good shape in the game.”

Marshfield hosts Stevens Point on Friday at 7 p.m. at Jack Hackman Field.

Marshfield baseball loses all three games at home tournament

Posted on 13 May 2017 by paul

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield baseball team dropped three games at its home tournament on Saturday, falling to Holmen 8-2, Antigo 15-12, and Appleton West 14-5.

Antigo (17-2) was a perfect 3-0 to win the tournament title.

Marshfield (5-9) was limited to two runs, both coming in the second inning, and just five hits against Holmen. Aaron Braun and Hunter Korger had RBIs in the second for the Tigers.

The Tigers led 7-5 after four innings against Antigo, but couldn’t hold on as the Red Robins posted five runs in both the fifth and sixth innings. Marshfield scored three times in the bottom of the seventh to cut Antigo’s six-run lead in half, but couldn’t get any more across.

Braden Bohman had two singles, a double, and a triple, scored three times, and had four RBIs for Marshfield in the loss. Andy Goettl had three hits and scored three times, and Jared Klein and Ryan Krueger each had two RBIs for the Tigers.

Appleton West (8-12) scored in all seven innings against four Marshfield pitchers. Brandon Montalvo had three hits, including two doubles, and an RBI, and Krueger was 2-for-2 with a double, an RBI, and two runs scored for the Tigers.

“We lost three times today and that’s tough on anybody,” Marshfield coach Jon Bauer said. “Getting through 21 innings was a big challenge, but we stayed competitive. I had to let our pitchers work longer and try to get through james where I normally would pull them. I believe that will make those pitchers better in the long run. It was also great to see some of our sophomore that normally play JV contribute as well.”

In other games in the tournament on Saturday, Antigo blanked Appleton West 11-0 and Holmen beat West 4-1. On Friday, Antigo beat Holmen 11-3.

Marshfield hosts Wausau East on Tuesday.

SCHOFIELD – Braden Bohman hit a lead-off home run in the first inning and the Marshfield bats woke up as the Tigers cruised past D.C. Everest 10-3 in a Wisconsin Valley Conference baseball game Thursday at D.C. Everest High School.

Marshfield, which had lost three games in a row, including a 2-0 shutout to Everest at home on Tuesday, scored eight runs in the first three innings and finished with nine hits in the win.

Jake Brueggen allowed one run in six innings and struck out six to earn the victory for Marshfield.

“It was nice to get a win after the stormy couple of games we just went through,” Marshfield coach Jon Bauer said. “We did a nice job executing offensively and defensively. Jake pitched very well to get the win. We need to keep up the good play moving forward.”

D.C. Everest (9-6, 5-3 Wisconsin Valley Conference) scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh before Jared Johnsrud extinguished the rally by getting the final two outs.

Bohman finished with a single, the home run, and four RBIs, and Jared Klein and Connor Jasurda each drove in two runs for the Tigers (5-6, 4-3 Wisconsin Valley Conference).

Marshfield will host its annual tournament this weekend. Antigo and Holmen play Friday at 5 p.m. at Reeths Field and the tournament will continue Saturday with six games. Marshfield will be playing a rare tripleheader with games against Holmen at 10 a.m., Antigo at 12:30 p.m., and Appleton West at 3 p.m.

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield baseball team had a chance to move up the Wisconsin Valley Conference standings, but D.C. Everest pitcher John Breske wasn’t about to let that happen.

Breske threw a complete-game four-hitter as D.C. Everest shut out Marshfield 2-0 on Tuesday at Jack Hackman Field.

With the victory, Everest maintains its hold on second place behind unbeaten Wausau West at 5-2 (9-5 overall), while Marshfield drops to 4-6 overall and 3-3 in the WVC after suffering its third-straight loss.

Matt Jagodzinski and an RBI single to score pinch runner Ben Bosi in the first inning, and Conner Langbehn scored on a double steal in the second to provide Everest, and Breske, with all the offense it would need.

Connor Jasurda pitched six innings for Marshfield was the hard-luck losing pitcher as he allowed only five hits and four walks, while striking out seven.

Marshfield had two runners on the first inning before Breske wiggled out of it with a pair of fielder’s choice groundballs and another ground out.

Braden Bohman led off with a walk and Ryan Krueger followed with a single. A fielder’s choice put runners on first and third before Jared Klein hit a tapper back to the pitcher and Bohman was thrown out at home trying to score.

Austin Palacek led off the third inning with a single and Bohman walked, but Marshfield’s attempted rally was quickly snuffed out as Everest converted a triple play.

Krueger hit into a 6-4-3 double play, but it turned into a triple play as Palacek rounded third too far and was gunned down by Langbehn.

The Tigers only had two baserunners the rest of the game as Breske cruised to the shutout win. He struck out four and walked just two.

“The D.C. Everest pitcher (Breske) threw a great game against us,” Marshfield coach Jon Bauer said. “Connor did a nice job for us. We just
didn’t get enough of the little things done to win this one.”

Marshfield will play at D.C. Everest on Thursday.

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield baseball team dropped a pair of games in a nonconference doubleheader against Chippewa Falls on Saturday at Jack Hackman Field.

Chippewa Falls won 21-4 and 10-1. Marshfield is now 4-5, while Chippewa Falls improves to 11-3.

Paul Maguire was 3-for-3 and Braden Bohman, Logan Jakobi, and Aaron Braun each had doubles in Game 1 for Marshfield.

Maguire and Jakobi each had two hits in the loss.

Jared Johnsrud took the loss, giving up eight runs, only four earned, in 5 2/3 innings as the Cardinals busted open a 3-1 game with a seven-run sixth inning.

“We need to do a lot of work to be able to play with those guys,” Marshfield coach Jon Bauer said. “I saw some good things batting wise. Defensively, we’ll just keep working at it and try to get to a higher level. We gave a good effort, we just have to clean up some things.”

Marshfield hosts D.C. Everest in a Wisconsin Valley Conference game Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. at Hackman Field.
