The game was a makeup from a rainout on June 11 and replaced the nonconference contest at West Bend West which was regularly scheduled for Monday, July 6. The Panthers, who bounced back from an 8-0 EWC loss to Sheboygan Falls Friday night, raised their EWC-leading record to 14-1 (18-5 overall).

A combined one-hit shutout by junior TJ Moegenburg and senior Cole Karczewski, and a six-run explosion in the bottom of the third inning highlighted the Panthers’ win. The game ended after 4½ innings due to the 10-run rule.

“We played well. Our pitchers did a good job of keeping the ball down. Our defense played well and we hit the ball hard,” said Panther head coach Butch Cain.

“We were aggressive [at the plate]. We hit with authority to the gaps.

“Overall, we played well as a team. We hustled hard and we came out with a lot of energy,” said the coach.

The Panthers grabbed a 3-0 lead in the first. Zac Cain hit an RBI single and each of the other two runs scored on an infield error apiece.

In the PHS third, six players had one RBI hit each – Tyler Willeford and Cain with triples, Matt Olig on a double, and Derek Schweiger, Jack Sacket and Zach Gambrell with singles.

The Panthers tallied their final run in the fourth. Ethan Keller dou- bled and scored on an infield error.

The Panthers banged out 10 hits, led by Gambrell, Cain and Derek Schweiger with two each. Cain had a team-high two RBIs. Gambrell led in runs with two.

The only hit for the Purple Raiders (0-16 in the EWC and 0-25 overall) was a single by Dalten Myers with one out in the second.

Moegenburg started on the mound and went three innings. He gave up one hit and three walks and had no strikeouts. Karczewski pitched the final two frames and walked none while striking out two.

The losing pitcher was Adam Taylor who went the distance. Taylor allowed seven earned runs and two walks with a pair of strikeouts in four frames.
