Panthers to face Franklin in state semifinals

The Plymouth Panthers (23-7) will play the Franklin Sabers (26-7) in the opening state summer baseball tournament semifinal game Friday at 11:35 a.m. at Kapco Park on the campus of Concordia University in Mequon.

The second semifinal game will follow the PHS-Franklin contest and will match Menomonee Falls (26-7) versus Pewaukee (24-10. The winners will meet in the championship game Friday at 6:05 p.m.

PHS lost in the state semifinals last year to eventual champion Brookfield Central, 2-1. Franklin is making its first state appearance since 2011 when it won the state title for the second straight season.

“Franklin has a deep baseball history and always hits the ball with the best,” said Panther head coach Butch Cain.

“They have been shutting people down and playing some really good baseball again lately. We will need to do the little things, pay attention to detail, be where we need to be and execute to the best of our ability to give ourselves the best chance to come out on top.

“The Panthers will play hard, play together and compete on every pitch. They feel they belong at Kapco and are excited about the opportunity,” said Cain.
