Muskego Impact Split with North Shore Again

July 2, 2013

After a victory on Saturday in the opening round of the SWABA Tourney, the Muskego Impact split a doubleheader on Sunday against North Shore played at Stornmonth Field in Fox Point. It was the second time during the month of June that the two teams split a doubleheader, again with the Impact run ruling the Knights in five innings in the opener and then the Knights getting a stellar pitching performance in the nightcap. With the split, their record now stands at 5-4 in the Land O’ Lakes eastern division and 6-4 overall.

The Impact were rained out last Wednesday night in their game scheduled against the New Berlin Lakers at Malone. It was their third Wednesday night rainout. Then on Saturday they traveled to Neosho to participate in the first round of the SWABA Tourney and beat Neosho in a squeaker 6-5. Peter Jewel picked up the victory in his second start of the year bringing his record to 2-0 on the season. He allowed 3 runs (one earned) over five and one third innings on 4 hits, while striking out 3, walking 3 and hitting one. Jake Jewell pitched the final one and two third innings to record his first save of the year. He allowed two runs on two hits, striking out 3 and walking 3. Two of those strike outs came in the bottom of the 7th inning with the game on the line as Neosho had the bases loading and where looking to pull out a victory.

The game was close throughout with the impact taking a 5-2 lead with 3 runs in top of the 6th inning and were up 6-3 when Neosho picked up those 2 runs in the bottom of the 7th to make it interesting. Nick Blanchet lead the Impact on offense picking up 3 hits, and Brandon Kozinski and Chad Henneberry contributed with 2 hits each.

In Sunday’s first game, the Impact only registered 5 hits, but took advantage of 12 walks and 3 hit batters issued by the North Shore Knight’s pitchers as they rolled to a 10-0 five inning victory. Kevin Schoenbach and Josh Beatka registered 2 hits each and Nick Blanchet delivered a 3-run triple as the Impact scored in every inning but the first. Dave Mihlsimmer picked up his second shutout of the season improving his record to 3-1 as he allowed 5 hits, with 2 strike outs and 3 walks.

The game featured a triple play turned by the Impact. The Knights had runners on first and second when a line drive was hit to second baseman Joe Kooping, who caught it and stepped on second for the second out and then threw the ball to first for the third out. A number of the players thought it could have been a historic moment in Muskego Impact play, but Coach Rick Henneberry said it was not that uncommon as he was involved in three during his playing days. However, he never did clarify if he was on the defense end or was batting at the time.

In the second game, the Impact faced Luke Erickson for the second time this season and he again had their number as the Impact fell 6-2. Erickson had a no hitter going until the last inning when the Impact picked up their lone 2 runs. Erickson finished with the two-hitter, striking out 10 and walking 4. Dave Archibald broke up the no hitter and Brandon Kozinski picked up the other hit. Cole Borek took the loss having just one bad inning as he allowed 4 earned runs on 5 hits in the second inning. His record dropped to 1-2 as he allowed 7 hits, striking out 3 and walkng one. Josh Beatka pitched the last inning striking out the side.

The Impact play a doubleheader this Wednesday night at Racine at 6:30 pm. Then they take a break this Sunday as the Land O’ Lakes All Star game will be played in Saukville. Representing the Impact will be Cole Borek, Brandon Kozinski, Andy Liss, Dave Mihlsimmer, Nick Schmidlkofer and Sean Staral. They then return to action on the weekend of July 13-14 playing in the Genoa City Tournament.
