The Bulldogs are Champions!! After dropping game two in West Bend, the Bulldogs were back at McCoy Field in Brookfield for the decisive game three. Matt Ausloos took to the mound and came thru with a gem, pitching a complete game for the championship win. Ausloos gave up just 1 run on 9 hits and walked none in 9 innings. The Bulldogs jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning. With one out, Mike Mierow smashed a double down the left field line. Kris Franzen walked before Randy Sobczyk hit an RBI single. Scott Booth would then hit a double scoring Sobczyk. West Bend got one run back in the 2nd inning with a home run from Matt Parrent, his 3rd homer in two days. The score would remain 2-1 until the bottom of the 6th inning, with the Bulldogs scoring 2 more runs to make the score 4-1. With one out, Randy Sobczyk singled and stole second base. Following a ground out that advanced Sobczyk to 3rd base, Quinn Hyndiuk drew a walk and stole second base. Curt Pryal then delivered a 2-out, 2 RBI single to left field. The Bulldogs added a run in the 7th inning. Jon Keane singled and stole second. Mierow then hit an RBI double to make the score 5-1. Ausloos shut it down from there, using 124 pitched to shut down the high powered 7-Up offense. Ausloos was named Championship Game MVP and Kris Franzen was named tournament MVP. Franzen hit a walkoff double in the game 1 victory, going 4-for-5 and made great plays in center throughout the 3-game series. Up next for the Bulldogs is the league banquet Oct. 21 at Ironwood Golf Course. There will be golf during the day followed by dinner and awards banquet that night.

Let's go Franzen! Let's go Franzen! That was the chant coming from the Bulldogs crowd Saturday at McCoy Field as the Bulldogs relied on their veteran future Hall of Fame centerfielder to lead the team to another playoff win and advance the Bulldogs within 1 win of their 3rd Lakes Grand Championship in 6 years. Franzen was 4-for-5 on the day with 4 RBI. Dan Barwick was smoking the ball at the plate, as was Randy Sobczyk. Both players finished with 3 hits and 2 RBI. Scott Booth was 1-for-2 with 1 RBI. Bill Gorman, Quinn Hyndiuk, Mike Mierow and Jon Keane each had 1 hit. Brookfield jumped out to a 6-1 lead after 2 innings, but West Bend can rake the baseball and they proved that, scoring 6 runs in the next 2 innings to take a 7-6 lead heading into the bottom of the 4th inning. The Bulldogs tied the game at 7-7 after 4 innings. The 7-Up and Bulldogs would each score 2 runs in the 6th inning to make the score 9-9. Scott Booth would lead off the 9th inning with a walk, bringing Franzen to the plate. Franzen took the first pitch for a ball before drilling a changeup 400 feet to centerfield for the game winning RBI double. Future Lakes Hall of Famer Jeff Lueck took to the mound in a pressure situation in the 7th inning. Lueck responded with 1-2/3 scoreless innings pitched, giving up just 2 hits and striking out 1 while earning the victory. This Bulldogs team is special. They play for each other...as a team...with 1 goal in mind, a Championship. If the rain holds off tomorrow, it may be attained. Brookfield at West Bend tomorrow 11 am. Hope to see you there.
