Robbie Schartner threw a complete game, holding Washington Island to just 3 runs as Egg Harbor advanced to the Door County Baseball League’s playoff championship game on Sunday. The Indians topped the Islanders 9-3. Schartner also contributed 3 hits to the cause. Egg Harbor scored 3 in the first inning and never trailed. A big blow in that opening frame was a 2 run homer by Eric DeJardine, he had 2 hits, including a double. Egg Harbor led 7-0 after 4 innings. Other leading hitters included Cory Fuller who had 2 hits, one of which was a solo home run in the 4th inning while Matt Ash and Robbie Schartner had 3 each and Woody Schartner and Joe Sawyer had 2 each.
Mike Jorgenson had a double and single and Matt Foss 2 singles to lead the Islanders.
At Kolberg, the home team held a 7-4 lead after 6 innings, but their bull pen failed and Sister Bay scored 3 runs in each of the last 3 innings to win 13-9. Justin Hartel and Tucker Emerson hit home runs in those innings, for Hartel it was his second of the game. He had 5 runs batted in with the 2 round trippers. Hartel also scored 3 runs in the game with 4 hits. Jon Woerfel had 3 hits while Emerson and Andy Kaczmarek had 2 each. Sam Forkert earned the win in relief of Will Hendriksen, he came on in the 5th with a run in, a man on and one out. He then struck out the next 2 batters to get out of the inning and in all he struck out 9 in 4 and 2/3 innings.
The game ended on a double play as Kolberg looked like they were starting a rally, a walk a base hit, then a strike out followed by the 6-4-3 double play.
