Menomonee Falls Wins Second Straight Title

Menomonee Falls 2, Marquette 0

Defending champion Menomonee Falls (25-10) won its second straight State Summer Baseball championship with a 2-0 shutout over Marquette (27-7) in the final at Kapco Park Friday evening.

The only scoring in the game came in the Indians’ half of the third inning. After one out, Ryan Piontek and Zack Kornburger singled and Ryan Spalding walked to load the bases. Ty Weber, who set a State Tournament record for two games with six hits, drove in two runs with a single to left field.

Weber pitched a gem, tossing a shutout with nine strikeouts. Weber, Cole Mir and Nick Gile each had a pair of hits to lead the Indians’ 10-hit attack.

Marquette managed just four hits in the game, all singles. The Hilltoppers only had one runner advance to second base in the game.

The Indians claim their second title in seven State appearances. Marquette finishes runner-up for the third time in nine State experiences.
