Clippers 1-1 at Chilton Baseball Tourney

Sturgeon Bay’s baseball team won big and lost big at Saturday’s three-team tournament in Chilton.

The Clippers defeated Manawa in six innings, 16-6, then lost to Chilton in five innings, 16-0.

“We played very well in the first game against Manawa, however we weren’t quite ready for Chilton,” said Sturgeon Bay head coach Neal Henrigillis. “[Chilton is] one of the best Division 2 teams in the state and they showed it right from the get-go. It was a good test for us. That Chilton game will allow us to regroup and get better going forward.”

In the win against Manawa, the Clippers tallied 13 hits. Danny Lodl and Brody Kollath recorded three hits apiece. Emmett Braschnewitz and Curt Meyer both had a pair of hits. Lodl and Meyer both doubled.

Caden LeMieux pitched the first four-plus innings and recorded the win, allowing five runs, two earned, on four hits with five walks and two hit batters while striking out one. 

Sturgeon Bay gave up 11 runs in the opening frame against Chilton and could only muster two singles in five innings coming from LeMieux and Bryce Plzak.

Lodl pitched the first two-thirds of an inning and took the loss.

The Clippers, who are 6-6 overall and 4-4 in the Packerland Conference, play a league doubleheader Tuesday at Peshtigo.
