Buhler leads Falcons to victory

by Steve Ottman

Sheboygan Falls’ Mitchell Buhler won his second game of the season on the mound and also drove in four runs, as the Falcons pounded the Ozaukee Warriors 10-1 in a non-conference baseball game Friday, June 3, in Sheboygan Falls.

Buhler was 2-for-2 at the plate with a sacrifice bunt and allowed one hit, walked four batters and struck out four to pick up the win.

Falls moves to 4-2 overall, after two weeks of play.

Bobby Musil and Zach Van Engen of Falls also had two hits each. Van Engen, Cole Heili and Nate Heili scored two runs apiece to lead Falls, while Van Engen and Jake Hand each hit a double.

Devin Christenson and Nate Heili combined for five strikeouts in relief.

Cole Heili threw a complete game season-high seven strikeouts in a 5-3 Eastern Wisconsin Conference win over the Two Rivers Raiders Thursday, June 2, in Sheboygan Falls.

Heili also batted 2-for-3 with a triple and two runs scored.

Falls evened its record at 1-1 in the EWC and gave new coach Ryan Fladvid his first conference win.

Falls scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to break the game open.

Johnny Sneen walked to start the inning. Musil then doubled and Sneen later scored on a wild pitch.

Van Engen singled to drive in Musil and Cole Heili singled to knock in the third run. Nate Heili also added a sacrifice fly.

“I was happier with the team play tonight,” said Fladvid. “We hustled on the bases and made better plays on defense.”

The Plymouth Panthers spoiled the debut of new coach Fladvid with a 5-0 shutout Tuesday, May 31.

Plymouth’s Trevor Thiel limited the Falcons to just two hits in pitching a complete game shutout.

Falls committed five errors, which ruined a good pitching performance from Russell Preder.

Preder took the loss, allowing one earned run, four hits and walking three batters, while striking out four. Christenson allowed one hit in pitching in relief.
