Wausau American spoils Antigo's season
space
It was a high scoring affair Wednesday at Doepke Park in Wausau as Antigo battled Wausau American for the District 5 championship, but a 24-16 loss for the 9-10-year-old All-Stars unexpectedly ended its 2013 season.

There was more than one tough break for Antigo. Its first being the loss of one of its two pitching aces, Eli Fleischman. Sidelined by a broken leg, Fleischmanís absence took its toll as many boys played unfamiliar positions, bad break number two.

Wausau was gifted seven errors and 10 walks, which lead to most of the runs scored by the Americans. Taking the loss on the mound for Antigo were, Neil Bretl, Cole Musolff, and Will Kubany.

On the offensive side, the future Robins kept themselves within striking distance most of the game.

Logan Copas scored four times without a hit. For Elliott Orgeman, it happened twice. Bretl had a double and a single with an RBI and a pair of runs.

Brady Renfro went 4-for-5 with three doubles and a triple for eight total RBIs. Kubany had a pair of singles and RBIs on the night. Musolff fired off two singles with one run.

Mason Burkhart hit a double while Alex Samolinski had a single. Caleb Kautza finished with a two-run scoring double.

The action although heavy, turned out to be a hard-fought end for the team.

After the contest, the Antigo boys took turns signing Fleischmanís cast, while he sat in a wheel chair, for the teamís last moments together.

Although their state tournament bid was over, many on the squad play for the 9 and 10-year-old Stallions team and will be playing ball again the weekend of July 26 as the season winds down for Antigo area baseball.
