Plymouth-5th-1st
 

5th Grade Championship Plymouth, 14-3 Sheboygan

Plymouth was the #2 seed so we batted first.  The first four batters got on and scored.   Sheboygan recorded a strikeout for our first out.  But then our next four batters got on base.  All of them scored also.    We managed  to get 6 hits that inning mixed in with two Sheboygan errors.  One of which was a dropped third strike.  8 total runs. 
     John Steinhardt was our starting pitcher and managed to keep Sheboygan scoreless through two innings even though the loaded the bases in their half of the inning.  A hit, a walk, and a hit by pitcher.  But John recorded all of the outs via the strikeout.  In our half(top) of the inning, we smacked three hits with the highlight being Jordan Schmitt’s two-run homer.  10-0.
     Plymouth went silent in our 3rd, but Sheboygan scored a run.  10-1.
In our half of the fourth, we put together 4 hits along with two walks which resulted in 4 runs.  Jordan Schmitt entered the fourth inning on the mound.  Jordan walked the first two batters, struck out the next, walked another loading the bases but then promptly struck out the final two hitters.  I began to mutter to myself during this inning.  End of four, Plymouth 14, Sheboygan 1.
     Plymouth went silent in our half of the inning.  Sheboygan begun the bottom of the fifth with a base hit followed by a 6-4 fielder’s choice.  One on, one out.  Another hit followed by a strikeout.  Two outs but runners are moving on the bases because of wild pitches and some passed balls.  Now mix in two hit by pitches and by the time of the final score, Sheboygan plated three more runs by way of the wild pitch and again some passed balls.

7th Grade Championship, K City 14-13 Manitowoc

Plymouth-8th-1st
 

8th Grade Championship, Plymouth 8-7 over Sheboygan Falls

Plymouth (2 Seed) V. Sheboygan Falls (1 Seed). This was the rubber match for the season as Plymouth and Falls split the regular season series. Sheboygan Falls went on to the #1 Seed by going 13-1, the lone loss was to Plymouth, Plymouth went into the League Playoffs as the #2 Seed going 11-3. Two evenly matched teams faced off Wednesday evening after getting rained out on Tuesday. Sheboygan Falls had all they could handle getting through Sheboygan Diamond Dawgs and Plymouth had a battle to take down Manitowoc Junior Ships.

Plymouth started out the game putting up 5 runs in the top of the 1st inning off of Falls starting pitcher. Plymouth ended up batting through the lineup led by Carter Schreiber who laced a 2 run single to left field and then Ben Knaus ripped another single up the middle to get Plymouth to 5 runs. Sheboygan Falls came back with 1 run in their half of the first inning and Plymouth failed to score again until the 5th inning which at that time Falls had clawed back into the game tying it 5-5 into the top of the 5th. Jack Steinhardt led off the 5th with a single, followed by Hunter Krahn when Phil Miller came up with a great sacrifice bunt moving runners over. The score was then 6-5 when a key to the eventual victory occurred. After a meeting on the mound by Sheboygan Falls and a pitching change with the bases loaded Carter Schreiber up to bat and Hunter Krahn now on 3rd base a perfectly executed squeeze play plated another run. Sheboygan Falls answered in their half of the 5th with a run and then again in the 6th inning bringing the game to a 8-7 lead for Plymouth when Adam Miller was relieved for closer AJ Osieczanek who was able to nail down a 5 out save to secure the victory and a back-to-back Lake-shore League Playoff Championships.

Both teams played tremendous and was a great game to watch and be a part of. As the season went on it was a pleasure to see the kids develop and improve from game to game. A big thanks goes out to all the parents and families who were able to watch and support as their young athletes matured and played well as a team. It will be great watching to see all these kids in the future in their High School baseball careers.
