Kingfish Drop Bombers 6-2 at Home

Kenosha, Wis. – No extra base hits on the night for the Kingfish, but a spectacular pitching performance and a couple of two out runs were all the Kingfish needed in a 6-2 victory over the Battle Creek Bombers Saturday night at Simmons Field. 

The Kingfish (39-19) scored first in the bottom of the second on a two out RBI single by Mitch Gasbarro to bring around Jeremy Vasquez and make it 1-0 Kingfish.  Continuing with the trend, the Kingfish scored with two outs in the bottom of the third inning. First, Vasquez reached home on a wild pitch.   Later in the inning, with the bases full of Kingfish, Zach Weigel reached on an error by the left fielder, scoring two runs.  An RBI single from Eric Filia and a run via an error by the Bombers gave Kenosha a 6-0 lead after six.

Gasbarro powered the offense with a 3-3 performance with a walk and RBI.  Vasquez scored two runs and Filia chipped in an RBI.

2015 Northwoods Leauge All-Star P.J. Schuster was sharp in his first game since the All-Star break.  The Kingfish righty pitched seven innings of shutout ball, scattering four hits with six strikeouts. Schuster has now lasted at least six innings in his last six starts.  Trevor Haas worked the eighth inning and J.D. Nielsen came on in the ninth to secure the win for the Kingfish. 

Griffin Weir took the loss for the Bombers (19-38) on the night.  Weir surrendered five runs, two earned, on four hits with five walks.  Niko Pacheco delivered the only runs for the Bombers with his two RBI single in the ninth inning.
