Miscues haunt Flames in league defeat

BROWNSVILLE – The Plymouth Flames managed only two hits and committed five errors as they were dealt a frustrating 4-2 loss by the Brownsville 49ers in Rock River Baseball League play here Wednesday night, July 18.

Plymouth dropped to 7-7 in the Northern Division (13-13 overall). The 49ers improved to 8-6 in the division.

Brandon Winfield fanned an amazing 18 batters en route to a complete-game win. Winfield allowed one earned run on only two hits, with five walks.

Three of the Brownsville runs were unearned as a result of four Plymouth miscues.

Flame pitcher Zac Cain pitched a strong game but took the loss. Cain went the distance and gave up one earned run on just five hits to go with three walks and two hit batters.

The Flames scored a run in the top of the fifth and one in the eighth. In the fifth, Jake Steinhardt scored on a passed ball after belting a leadoff triple. In the eighth, Blake Hall cracked a leadoff double and eventually scored on Derek Hall’s groundout.


In a Southeast Wisconsin Baseball League game Saturday afternoon at West Bend, the Flames and the Kenosha Kings battled to a 9-9 tie. The game was the SEWBL regular-season finale for the Flames

The game was called in the bottom of the sixth inning due to rain, with the game tied 9-9. Flame manager Rick Meyer said the game will not be completed and he said it will probably be counted as a tie.

The Flames rallied for four runs in the sixth to knot the game, 9-9. Derek Hall’s tworun double brought Plymouth to within 9-8 and then he scored on an error. The game ended with a runner on second with one out.

Derek Hall led Plymouth in hits with three and shared the RBI lead with Tyler Betry at two each.
