MARSHFIELD – The start to the 2017 Wisconsin Junior American Legion State Baseball Tournament couldn’t have been any worse for the host Marshfield Post 54 Blue Devils.

After starting approximately 40 minutes late due to rain, the Green Bay Shockers scored eight runs in the bottom of the first inning and went on to beat Marshfield 13-3 in five innings on Wednesday night at Jack Hackman Field.

Five singles, two errors, a hit batter and a walk led to the eruption by the Shockers, who scored at least once in all five of their at-bats. Marshfield finished with four errors in all and its two pitchers walked eight.

Marshfield scored on an RBI single by Joey Goettl in the second inning. After the Shockers added single runs in the second and third innings to open up a 10-1 lead, the Blue Devils struck for two in the fourth.

Mitch Wilhelm scored on a passed ball and Tyler Spaeth singled to drive in Tyler Wein, but that was Marshfield could get across in the defeat.

Marshfield (19-8) will face Fond du Lac in an elimination game at 1 p.m. Thursday.

PLOVER – The Marshfield Post 54 baseball team had its season come to an end with a 4-1 loss to D.C. Everest in an elimination game at the Class AAA American Legion regional on Wednesday afternoon at Memorial Park.

Everest scored three runs in the fourth inning to break open a scoreless game and held on from there.

Connor Langbehn had an RBI double and later scored on an error, and Sam Nielsen reached on an error that plated Nate Jagodzinski to put Everest up 3-0 against Marshfield starter Jared Johnsrud.

Marshfield got a run back in the bottom of the fifth when Andy Goettl walked, moved to third on a single by Ryan Krueger, and scored on an error. That was all the Blue Devils would muster against Everest pitcher John Braske.

Braske went the distance, striking out four and walking three while scattering seven hits over his nine innings on the mound.

Logan Langbehn drove in Everest’s final run with a two-out single in the eighth.

Johnsrud went the distance as well for the Blue Devils, striking out five. Only one of the four runs he allowed was earned.

Austin Palacek and Hunter Korger each had two hits for Marshfield.

Marshfield finishes its season with a 12-14 record. D.C. Everest moves on to another elimination game Thursday against Wisconsin Rapids at 1 p.m. The winner will play again at 7 p.m.

PLOVER – The Marshfield Post 54 American Legion baseball team lost a two-run lead late and fell in extra innings 7-6 to Wausau Post 10 in the first-round of the Class AAA regional tournament on Tuesday afternoon at Memorial Park.

Marshfield (12-13) falls into the loser’s bracket against the loser of Tuesday’s game between Stevens Point and D.C. Everest at 1 p.m. Wednesday. The loser of that game will be eliminated from the six-team, double-elimination tournament that boasts a spot in next week’s state tournament at Kimberly for the winner.

Marshfield led 6-4 after scoring twice in both the sixth and seventh innings, but reliever Jacob Neve was hit hard in the eighth, allowing four hits to the five batters he faced. Payton Nelson and Zach Raeder had RBI singles to tie the game.

Connor Jasurda entered on the mound and got Marshfield out of the jam without any further damage. He was strong in the ninth and 10th innings before Wausau finally got to him in the 11th.

Raeder led off with a double, Jasurda struck out Logan Gruenenwald and then walked Paul Weise. After a 15-minute rain delay, the second stoppage of the game that began 35 minutes later because of a quick shower prior to the first pitch, Jasurda coaxed a fielder’s choice groundball that Zach Pearson barely beat out at first base to keep the inning alive.

After another walk, Clay Schult hit a dribbler toward shortstop that Ryan Krueger had little chance to field cleanly and throw any of the runners out. The ball slid under Krueger’s glove as Raeder scored the winning run.

The first three runners reached for Marshfield in the top of the first, but the Blue Devils managed just one run on an Austin Palacek RBI sacrifice fly.

Wausau responded with a pair of runs in the first as the Bulldogs tagged Marshfield starter Jake Brueggen with four hits. Nelson singled and scored on a throwing error and Grant Hill added an RBI single in the frame.

Nelson had a sac fly in the second to put Wausau up 3-1 before Brueggen settled in.

The Marshfield left-hander allowed just three baserunners over the next four innings as the Blue Devils clawed back in it.

Brueggen doubled and scored on a single by Neve in the fourth, and Marshfield went ahead with a two-run sixth. Two Wausau errors and an RBI fielder’s choice by Hunter Korger led to the two runs.

Andy Goettl led off the seventh with a single and promptly stole second. Krueger was hit by a pitch, and after a groundout advanced the runners, Paul Maguire ripped his second double of the game to plate both runners and put the Blue Devils up 6-3.

Wausau chased Brueggen after scoring a run in the seventh. Brueggen left after seven innings and 110 pitches.

Marshfield was unable to get anything going offensively in the final four innings. The Blue Devils had one run on in eighth, ninth and 11th, but managed no more runs against Wausau relievers Raeder and Nelson.

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield Chaparrals amateur baseball team got all the runs they would need in the first inning and a strong starting stint by Ryan Metz on the mound to take a Dairyland League game 9-1 against the Abbotsford Merchants on Monday night at Jack Hackman Field.

The win moves the Chaps a little closer to .500 at 6-7, and their Dairyland League record is now 4-5.

The Chaps jumped all over Abby starter Jay Soyk in the first inning. Justin Rayburn stroked a one-out single and Curt Englebrecht walked. A passed ball and a walk got Rayburn to third where he was driven in by a Sam Schwanebeck sacrifice fly to center.

Luke Wirtz was next with an RBI triple, followed by a Lucius Messerschmidt single to right, scoring Wirtz. Alex Steines reached on an error and Jack Donahue walked. They moved up a base on a wild pitch and Noah Panzer drove them both in to stake the Chaps to a 5-0 lead.

Metz was tough on the hill taking a no-hitter into the fourth. He left after seven scoreless innings, surrendering just three hits while striking out eight and walking one, a performance not overlooked by his manager.

“Metz pitched well for us,” said Rayburn. “When his curveball is on, he’s tough to beat. He hit his spots tonight.”

The Chaps added single runs in the second and third.

Curt Englebrecht hit a solo home run in the second and the Chaps got an unearned run in the sixth after Messerschmidt singled again and scored on back-to-back errors by the Merchants.

Bobby Pilz led off the Chaparrals eighth with a single and moved to second when Rayburn walked. Schwanebeck drove them both in with his third double of the season and the Chaps led 9-0.

Jack Donahue pitched the eighth and ninth for the Chaps.

Abby got their only run in the ninth when Andy Hodgen scored after a lead-off walk.

The Chaparrals’ next game is on the road against Rock Falls at 1:30 p.m. Sunday.

RIB LAKE – The Marshfield Chaparrals amateur baseball team had things going their way for most of Friday night’s game at Rib Lake before the Osprey swooped in late and stole a 9-5 win.

The loss drops the Chaps to 5-7 overall and 3-5 in the Dairyland League.

Chaparrals manager Justin Rayburn succinctly summed up the game and what the Chaps need to do the rest of the season.

“We scored early, but then our bats went cold for a while,” Rayburn said. “Now we need to string together some wins to finish out the year if we want to make the playoffs. We are capable of that.”

And for most of Friday’s game the Chaps proved they were capable.

Jack Donahue bashed a home run to lead off the third as the Chaps drew first blood. Noah Panzer followed with a single and Bobby Pilz reached on an error. Rayburn’s bunt single loaded the bases for Luke Wirtz, who drilled a double scoring Panzer and Pilz. Sam Schwanebeck’s sacrifice fly scored Rayburn and the Chaps were up 4-0.

Meanwhile, Pilz took a no-hitter into the fourth on the hill before sacrificing a double and a single, but wiggled off the hook with a fly-out to left.

The Osprey got their first run in the fifth on a pair of singles to lead off the inning. After a strikeout, Pilz hit a batter before yielding a sacrifice fly. The inning ended with a pop-up to Wirtz behind the plate.

The Chaps got that run right back when Pilz led off the seventh by again reaching on an error. Rayburn’s single to right got past the fielder and Pilz raced around to score making it 5-1.

Pilz pitched into the seventh, but after a walk and a single – and 115 pitches – he traded positions with shortstop Schwanebeck.

Schwanebeck gave up three consecutive singles, turning a comfortable lead in a full-blown jam. Two fielder’s choice groundballs got the Chaps out of the inning, but not before the Osprey tied the game at 5-5.

Drew Spaeth pitched the eighth and promptly got a strike out and a groundout to first. After a pair of singles and a walk, Spaeth was almost out of the inning but a miscue in the infield allowed a run to score. A walk, a hit batter, and a single signaled the end for the Chaps as they surrendered eight runs in the last two innings and lost 9-5.

The Chaparrals’ next game is at home Monday at 7:30 p.m. against Abbotsford.
