Shortstop has hard-hitting night to remember as Grafton pummels Port in NSC finale


GRAFTON’S C.J. KOEHLER delivered a pitch during a 19-8 win over Port Washington last Friday. Koehler worked the first three innings of the game, which was the North Shore Conference finale for both teams.

After slipping into a five-game losing skid during an up-and-down season, the Grafton High School baseball team found itself badly in need of an offensive energizer last week.


Enter Robbie Doring.

The junior shortstop powered the Black Hawks to a 19-8 win over Port Washington on Friday with a career-best night at the plate.

Doring, who’s not known for his long-ball skills, hit two homers, drove in five runs and scored three times in a 3-for-4 performance. The blitz was part of a 17-hit attack in a five-inning, North Shore Conference win that left Grafton coach Brian Durst
smiling.

“We put together the best offensive lineup we could without compromising our defensive integrity,” said Durst, whose team won its second straight game and finished NSC play at 8-10.

“It was nice to get on a roll after having struggling the last few games.”

Grafton’s victory — in the league finale for both teams — was its second high-scoring win over the Pirates this season. On May 31, the Hawks defeated Port, 14-7.
The rematch was even more one-sided. Grafton jumped ahead, 5-0, in the first inning and kept on going, stretching the lead to 14-3 in the top of the third.

The Pirates (3-15) generated plenty of offense by scoring in each of the first four innings and eventually pulled within 14-8. But the Hawks settled the slugfest with another five-run outburst in the final frame before the game was called on the mercy rule.

Grafton posted single-game season highs for runs and hits, doing all the damage against Port starter Nick Godersky and reliever Kyle Pallo.

“We were shorthanded with pitching to start, and they jumped on Nick right away,” Port coach Jeff Dornburg said.

“He had to go the first three innings because we didn’t have anyone else to use. They hit the ball well against us.”

Doring was the winner in a race for Grafton slugging honors. His run production came on a two-run homer in the third and a three-run shot in the fifth.

The Hawks had plenty of other standouts, as well. Kevin Scholz went 4-for-4, B.J. Weisflog was 3-for-5, and Ryan Hartwig and Beau Benzschawel each had two hits.

Benzschawel’s key blow was a three-run triple in the second inning.

Alex Nennig also cracked a two-run homer in the first, when Port helped the Hawks by committing three errors.

“We came out focused and didn’t let up,” Durst said. “It was good to see. It’s what we talked about doing in each game the rest of the season.”

Despite struggling on the mound and in the field, the Pirates had success at the plate. They collected 13 hits off three pitchers, including starter C.J. Koehler, who worked the first three innings.

Leading Port were 3-for-4 efforts from Chase Hollander and Kiley Prellwitz. Hollander, a junior, had two doubles and two RBI and scored twice.

Grafton 5, Slinger 1

The Hawks trailed, 1-0, after three innings but moved ahead to stay with a two-run fourth in a conference home win that snapped a five-game losing streak July 7.

Freshman Nate Lukas pitched the first six innings for his first varsity win. The left-hander struck out five and walked two before giving way to Ryan Schmitt for the final frame.

“Nate did an excellent job,” Durst said.  “He threw strikes, and our defense made the plays behind him.”

Grafton took a 2-1 lead in the fourth on a run-scoring groundout by Eric Moeller and RBI single by Tim Grams.

In the fifth, the margin grew to 4-1 on a sacrifice fly by Nennig and RBI single by Moeller.

Koehler’s sacrifice fly in the sixth capped the scoring.

Grams and Weisflog each went 2-for-3.

Germantown 3, Grafton 1

Brian Keller got the best of the Black Hawks in a pitchers’ duel with Koehler on July 5.

Keller allowed only one hit, a infield single by Scholz in the top of the second inning, when Grafton took a 1-0 lead.

With one out, Benzschawel was hit by a pitch, and Scholz reached. Moeller then grounded into a force play, but a throwing error allowed a run to score.

Koehler allowed only five hits in a complete-game effort. However, Germantown scored once in the fourth and added two runs in the sixth on an error and wild pitch.

Keller struck out six and walked none. Koehler had four strikeouts and two walks.

Grafton will conclude its regular-season schedule this week with two nonconference games — 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Elkhart Lake and 5:30 p.m. Friday at home against Howards Grove.

The Hawks will open WIAA tournament play July 19 against Homestead.

Kiley Prellwitz’s run-scoring single in the bottom of the 10th inning gave the Port Washington High School baseball team a win — and a much-needed boost — Monday.

The freshman drove in Jeff Ross from third base as the host Pirates edged Oostburg, 5-4, in a nonconference game.

The victory snapped an eight-game losing streak for Port, which is trying to regroup for the WIAA tournament that opens next week.

“We played a pretty good game with decent pitching, hitting and defense,” Port coach Jeff Dornburg said.

“Hopefully this is something we can build on heading into the tournament.”

The Pirates, who improved to 5-19, led much of the game after scoring three runs in the second inning.

With one out, Nick Godersky tripled and Jeff Ross walked. A balk brought in Godersky and moved Ross to second base.

Aaron Brockman and Kevin Schmidt followed with back-to-back RBI doubles to give Port a 3-1 lead.

The Pirates took a 4-2 lead in the fourth on a RBI groundout by Brockman.

Oostburg (2-20) rallied to force extra innings by scoring single runs in the sixth and seventh. Port committed an error in each frame.

In the 10th, Ross started the final rally with a single and stole second base. Oostburg failed to retire anyone on Andrew Bortolotti’s sacrifice bunt, putting runners on first and third.

After Brockman was walked intentionally to load the bases, Prellwitz delivered the game winner.

Brockman pitched the final inning for the win, striking out the side.

Derek Haley worked the first six innings for the Pirates, followed by three innings from Prellwitz.

Ross and Prellwitz each had two hits. 

In Central Lakeshore Conference games Monday, Cedar Grove-Belgium lost to Howards Grove, 8-6, and Ozaukee was edged by Sheboygan Lutheran/Kohler, 2-1.

Cedar Grove-Belgium fell behind early and trailed the whole game. The Rockets pulled within 6-5 in the fifth inning but gave up two runs that helped seal the outcome.

Despite the loss, Cedar Grove-Belgium remained in first place in the CLC standings with a 14-3 record, two games ahead of runner-up Sheboygan Lutheran/Kohler (11-4). Howards Grove improved to 12-5.

Darren Koopman pitched a complete game for Cedar Grove-Belgium, allowing six hits, walking four and striking out six. The Rockets committed three errors behind him.

Josh Ruppel led Cedar Grove-Belgium with two doubles and three RBI. Zach Feind had an RBI double, and Koopman and Kyle Kirst each had one hit.

Cole Reinemann got the win, striking out seven and walking three.

Ozaukee (9-7) fell in a pitchers’ duel in which each team had just four hits.

The Warriors trailed, 2-0, after Lutheran/Kohler scored in the fourth and fifth. In the bottom of the fifth, Ozaukee pushed across its run when Hunter Hess doubled home Zach Beck.

Sean Job took the loss in a complete-game effort. He struck out four and walked three.

“It was a classic ball game,” Ozaukee coach Bob Kiefer said. “I felt bad that we lost, but I can’t fault the effort our kids put in.”

Missed scoring chances hurt the Warriors, who stranded several runners in scoring position, including the tying run in the seventh inning.
