Wisconsin All-Stars Defeat Hitters Baseball
The Wisconsin All-Stars U/17 team defeated the Hitters at the Carthage College Showcase September 7-8 by a score of 4-0. The Hitters were no match for the All-Stars. Branden Frank (Hartland Arrowhead) dominated the Hitters.
Branden kept the Hitters off balance the entire game by mixing his speeds and throwing his fastball in the mid to upper 80's. He pitched a complete game 3 hit shutout striking out 4 and walking 2. He retired the first nine batters in order before allowing a leadoff single in the 4th inning. That runner was quickly erased in a 4-6-3 double play. Branden allowed only one batter to reach second base, a double leading off the 5th inning but that runner was caught trying to stretch the hit into a triple on a nice relay throw from left fielder Paul Holden to shortstop Jordan Resulta (Green Bay Southwest HS). Credit should also be given to catcher Will Doherty (Wisconsin Heights HS) for calling a great game and keeping the Hitters off-balance.
The defense was solid behind Branden all day with some nice plays by the left side of the infield, Connor Moroder (Pewaukee HS) at 3rd and Resulta at short. The defense was aided by the handy glove work and excellent picks by first baseman Dan Borek (Hortonville HS).
Offensively, Joe Helmer (Spring Valley HS) led the way with a 2-3 performance with 2 RBIs and two stolen bases. Connor Hafeman (Hortonville HS) knocked in the first run, Eric Pascutti (Franklin HS) who had walked, with a gap splitting double and later scored on a fielder's choice by Connor Moroder. Hafeman also finished 2-3 on the day. In total the All-Stars pounded out 7 hits and showed great patience at the plate drawing 6 walks.
The All-Stars are truly the best high school exposure showcase team in Wisconsin.
