7 UP Back In First Place
7 UP got back to its winning ways and has turned the ship after winning twice over the weekend. 7 UP took down the Brookfield Blue Sox on Saturday morning in a make up game. Matt Parrent got the ball and was once again on his game. Shaky 7 UP defense allowed 3 unearned runs to score on the day. The only earned run came off a Pat Tobiasz bomb that still hasn't landed. Parrent went all 9 on the day, striking out 8 while only walking 2. He improved his era to 1.51 on the season. The bats also showed up as 7 UP banged out 23 hits on the day. Nick Winter continues to get hits even though he is breaking bats at a record pace. He finished the day with 4 hits. Dan Ranieri, who has heated up in recent weeks, pounded the ball all day and had 4 hits also. Sam Mattheis, Billy Bynum, and "the skip" Adam Rohlinger chipped in with 3 hits too. But the offensive star of the day was Matt Schubert. Heading into the 8th 7 UP was holding a slim lead at 5-4. After a rough few first at bats, Schubert came up with the bases loaded in the top of the 8th and hit a towering grand slam to left to give 7 UP much needed insurance. He then would homer again in the 9th to dead center as the game was out of reach. Overall he drove in 5 on the day and even smiled after the victory.
7 UP then returned right back to action Sunday to defeat the rival Sussex Cardinals 6-3 at Carl Kuss Field. After a long night for many 7 UP players, it seemed like old times. Matt Schubert got the start and cruised all day. His only hiccup came in the 3rd when the hard hitting Cardinals plated 2 runs. Schubert would go the distance in the heat, striking out 14 Cardinals while only walking 4. He had all his pitches working and had hitters guessing all day. Schubert improved his record to 2-0 and has now struck out 35 batters in the just 24 innings of work. The offense did just enough as 7 UP played 3 runs in the first to get the lead. Nick Winter, Adam Rohlinger, and Billy Bynum all singled in the first to build the lead. 7 UP would plate 2 more runs in the 2nd, thanks to a Mike Szeszol single to left. 7 UP would then add one more in the 3rd but wouldn't get much more the rest of the day. Thankfully that was all Schubert needed though as he was brilliant all day. 7 UP now has won 4 Land O Lakes games in a row and has returned to first place. With 5 league games left, 7 UP looks to repeat as Suburban champs. 7 UP will return to action Friday night against the Falls in a big division game that will start at 7 at Regner.
