YOUR BACK TO BACK CHAMPS!
2 Gutty Shorthanded Wins To Extend Streak
Winning games is already hard enough when you're the defending champs and you get everyone's best shot, but doing it shorthanded, and having things go against you is the stuff that can give you the confidence you need going forward towards the end of the regular season. For 7 Up having a dude like Matt Parrent makes a lot of things better for a shorthanded team. Parrent gutted through a complete game, 168 pitch effort to help 7 Up defeat the Hartland Oilers. Offensively, Parrent helped his own cause by a pair of RBI singles, including one in the 7th that gave 7 Up the lead for good. The skip, Dan Ranieri, delivered a 2 run single in the 3rd. Sam Mattheis and Adam Rohlinger saved the day defensively for 7 Up with several big plays.
On Sunday, the 7 Up played Rubicon in the Rock River - Land O' Lakes challenge thing, and it gave 7 Up a chance to give some much deserved playing time to much of the roster. The game was tight until the 4th when the 7 Up took a commanding lead scoring 4 times, and 3 more times in the 5th. The story of the game was the arm of Dylan Hinkley, who west 6 innings, giving up just 2 hits, striking out 8, on just 56 pitches. Jacob "French last name" Boudreau and Matt Schubert each took advantage of a gusty win and gym memberships by hitting home runs. Matt Parrent again had two hits.
7 Up has a big weekend coming up this weekend, with two road games, one to Menomonee Falls on Saturday, at 11am, and Sunday we head to Pewaukee for the first time in a long time, for a 1pm start.
