Steinhardt, who finished his baseball career at Plymouth High School recently, homered with the bases loaded in his first at-bat for the Flames which climaxed a seven-run explosion in the bottom of the first inning. His five RBIs led the team.

The victory clinched a Rock River Baseball League playoff berth for the Flames who finished 10-6 in the Northeast Division and improved to 21-9 overall. The Twins fell to 5-8 in the division.

“That grand slam was huge. He did well,” said Flame manager Rick Meyer about Steinhardt’s performance.

“We did very well. We hit the ball well. We’ve been playing well the last three or four weeks.”

The Flames pounded out 17 hits, led by Derek Hall, Mike Daly and Zac Cain with three each. Greg Rhude, Matt Rhude and Steinhardt had two apiece.

Hall was the winning pitcher with six solid innings. He allowed two earned runs on six hits with four strikeouts and two walks. Nick Wilson pitched a scoreless seventh. The game ended after 6½ due to the 10-run rule.

Eric Wade and Alec Tomkiewicz paced the Twins in hits with two each.

KEWASKUM GAME

In divisional action Saturday afternoon, the Flames defeated the host Kewaskum A’s, 5-0, as Matt Rhude fired a shutout. He gave up seven hits and only one walk to go with two strikeouts and one hit batter en route to improving his record to 4-3.

“Matt got ahead of the batters and had better command. He wasn’t walking guys and we played good defense,” said Meyer.

“I was very pleased with the team. It was a crisp game. Everybody did very well.”

Daly keyed the Flames’ bats with three hits and Greg Rhude collected two. Matt Rhude had a team-best two RBIs on a triple in the top of the third.

Sam Zarling led the A’s in hits with three and Anthony Matic cracked a pair.
