Muskego Impact Drop Two Vs New Berlin

June 10, 2014

The Muskego Impact hit a bump in the road this past weekend as they look to three-peat their Eastern Division Championship in the Land O’ Lakes Baseball League. The dropped a doubleheader at historic Horn Field this past Sunday as the New Berlin Lakers won the pair of games 5-1 and 5-4. The Impact pitching was good enough to win both games, especially the second game, but lack of offense and a few miscues in the field did them in.

In the first game, Cole Borek (2-1) took to the mound looking for his third straight victory early in the season. However, some defensive miscues and one base hit coming as a result of the proverbial “hitting the outfield wire” lead to three unearned runs early on. The Lakers did pick up a couple of earned runs in the 4th inning to top off their scoring, but then a long fly ball could have been caught and one batter reached first on a strike out and eventually scored. Borek pitched 6 innings allowing 5 runs (2 earned) on 9 hits, while striking out 3 and walking 2. Aaron Kiewig pitched the final frame with the Lakers going three up three down with one strike out.

The Impact scored their lone run in the 6th inning when Sean Staral lead off the inning with a double off the fence and Jake Jewell drove him in with a hard ground ball up the middle. The Impact were held to 4 hits facing the Lakers’ ace, Josh Serios, who struck out 12 and allowed 4 walks as he picked up the 5-1 victory.

In the second game, Dave Mihlsimmer (1-2), who was looking to get the Impact a victory, deserved a much better fate as the Impact should have won the game. They scored three runs in the bottom of the 5th inning to take a 4-2 lead and had a good chance to score more, but were turned away. Then the Lakers scored an unearned run in the 6th and the 7th inning to tie the game and eventually won the game in extra innings when they scored in the top of the 8th inning.

The Impact outhit the Lakers 8 hits to 5 hits as TJ Anderson, Sean Staral and Jake Jewell picked up 2 hits each and Jewell drove in a couple of runs in that 5th inning when the Impact took the lead. Mihlsimmer helped his cause with an rbi single to get the Impact on the board in the 2nd.

What lead to the defeat, was nice diving catch by the Impact’s centerfielder in the top of the 6th, but then a quick throw to try to double off the runner at first got bye the first basemen and into the dugout allowing the runner to advance to third and score shortly after on a passed ball. Then in the top of the 7th, an error leading off the inning lead to the unearned run that tied the game.

Mihlsimmer went the distance except the final out as Peter Jewell came in to retire the last batter on one pitch. Mihlsimmer, like Borek in the first game, allowed only 2 earned runs pitching one out shy of 8 innings as he allowed 5 hits, while striking out 7,walking 2 with 2 hit batters.

The Impact return to action on Wednesday at Park Arthur vs West Allis and then take on West Allis again in a doubleheader next Sunday at Zirkel Field.
