West Bend East senior George Seaman’s opposite field, solo home run in the bottom of the 10th stunned Beaver Dam 1-0 in a WIAA Division One Regional Final on Thursday night in West Bend.
The walk-off dinger was the only blemish on any pitchers resume for either team during the game. The Suns Nolan Gawrych and Sam Geldnich combined to strike out 12 and give up just five hits in the 10 inning ballgame. Beaver Dam’s hurlers Logan Thomas and Alex Soto were just as impressive giving up just six hits during game. Geldnich tossed two and two thirds innings of hitless baseball to earn the while Soto takes the hard luck loss.
Senior Griff Wicklund collected two of the Beavers five singles during the game.
Beaver Dam’s season comes to an end at 10-8 while West Bend East (20-7) advances to the Oshkosh North Sectional on Monday and will face Cedarburg.
