Menomonee Falls won three of its last four games. On June 8, Falls beat West Allis Central, 6-5. MFHS led 6-2 going into the bottom of the seventh.

HHS downs East

Hamilton's bats were on point last week, but the Chargers' opponents also caught fire. In four games, Hamilton was victorious in one.

Oak Creek defeated HHS on June 8, 7-2. A day later, West Allis Hale beat Hamilton, 12-9.

"Overall, our hitting has been consistent all year," HHS coach Mike Schramek said. "We really need to improve on the mound and on defense. As good as our offense has been at times, our offense is not able to make up for our errors and walks. We need to continue to improve in these areas if we want to get things on track this year. I felt we made strides in doing this versus Oak Creek. We did not commit any errors in the game and our starting pitcher Andy Kornacki was solid for 5 and 2/3, walking just two while striking out three and Noah Kristensen went the rest of the way walking zero. The difference in the game was Oak Creek's timely hitting. Six of Oak Creek's eight hits came in the first and sixth innings."

Against Tosa East, Cam Meilke went 4-for-4. Will Enneking was 2-for-3 with four RBIs and a home run. Will Geels also had two hits.
