The Bandits wrapped up the 2010 regular season with a 9-1 win over the De Pere RiverBandits. Miles Mayer picked up the win with seven solid innings of work. Stewart Larson was 5x5 on the evening and fell just one hit short of tying Joe Borchardt's record of hits in a game. Borchardt was 6x6 in the Bandits second game ever back in 1998. Nat Richter was 3x4 and continued hitting at his torrid pace and Sam Spurney added another pair of doubles, giving him 17 on the season. The Bandits must now wait to see if DePere can sweep Sheboygan in a DH on Friday night.
The Bandits playoff hopes are so slim, you might not even see any light. The Bandits needed Sheboygan to lose three of their four remaining games and that meant that Manitowoc, going into Wednesday night, needed DePere, who is 1-19, to beat the Sheboygan A's in two of three contests they have remaining with them this week while the Bandits must defeat DePere on Thursday night. Lo and behold, De Pere mustered a win at Sheboygan Wednesday night by a score of 9-5, giving them just their second win of the season and keeping the Bandits playoff hopes alive. The Bandits no
The Appleton Legends jumped out to an 8-0 before the Bandits were able to push across even one run although outhitting the Legends 13 hits to 12. In the bottom of the seventh inning, the Bandits would put up six runs before scoring another in the ninth but would fall 8-7 in Appleton as Galen Duff lined out to second base to end the contest and darken the hopes that the Bandits would make the 2010 Playoffs. Menasha also fell tonight, losing to Sheboygan 14-11 and ending their season at 13-11. If the Bandits defeat De Pere on Thursday night, they would also be 13-11. T
The playoff picture remains out of focus, but got a lot dimmer, as the Menasha Macs defeated the Manitowoc Bandits by a score of 5-2 on Monday night at Menasha behind a walk-off 3 run homerun. Green Bay and Sheboygan split their Monday night doubleheader, giving Green Bay a share of the regular season crown and one of four playoff spots. The remaining three playoff spots are up for grabs between Manitowoc, Menasha, Appleton and Sheboygan. This is the final week of the regular season and the Bandits host the Legends tonight at Municipal Field at 7:30 before hostin
After travelling to Kenosha on Saturday and dropping another pair of close games in the WSL 3-2 and 3-0, the Bandits' bats came to life in an 11-1 vicotory over the Sheboygan A's on Sunday night in Sheboygan. The win gives the Bandits 12 wins in the NEWBL, putting them back into the playoff hunt. The Bandits have three NEWBL contests during this final week, Menasha on Monday at Menasha and then a home game on Tuesday against Appleton and a home game on Thursday against De Pere.
The Bandits were able to secure a pair of victories on Thursday night as they hosted the De Pere Riverbandits at Municipal Field. De Pere was recognized as the home team for both games as it was a scheduled makeup of a June rain out at De Pere. The two games were on complete opposites of the spectrum as game one went nine innings and ended with a narrow 3-2 victory for the Bandits. Parker Johnson pitched eight solid innings to pick up the win and Galen Duff recorded his second save of the season. In Game two, De Pere's pitchers struggled with control and the Bandits
The Green Bay Storm completed the season sweep of the Manitowoc Bandits, winning 7-5 at Municipal Field and capping off a 4-0 run in the regular season. With just over one week to go, the playoff picture is as muddied as ever as six teams vie for four playoff spots. Greg Herr tossed six innings with most of the damage coming on homeruns by brothers Doug and Rob Coe. Stewart Larson and Josh Krowiorz each doubled for the Bandits but no hitter had more than one hit on the evening. The Bandits took an early lead by scoring three runs in the bottom of the first inning whe
The Oshkosh Giants road a seven-run sixth inning to defeat the Manitowoc Bandits 8-4 in Oshkosh on Tuesday night. Brennan Rhode took the loss giving up eight runs, four earned, in five 1/3 innings. Matt Roberts made his 2010 Bandits debut by finishing the game and striking out four while walking one. Ben Warwick was 2x2 in the contest. The Bandits are currently mired in a seven game losing streak, one they hope to break tonight when they host the Green Bay Storm in Manitowoc at Municipal Field. The Storm have won all three contests with the Band
The Bandits made the four-hour road trip to Eau Claire to take on the Eau Claire Cavaliers for a four game weekend series. Saturday saw the Bandits lose both contests by narrow margins. Eau Claire won the opener, 2-1, then the nightcap, 2-0, in a doubleheader sweep of the Manitowoc Bandits. The Bandits and Eau Claire play the final two games of the series on Sunday morning beginning at 10am as the Cavs have to vacate the ballpark for a Northwoods League game in the the afternoon. Sunday's results were more of the same as the Bandits dropped the opener
The Manitowoc Bandits had runners on first and third base with two outs in the ninth inning but were unable to top Sheboygan in a 7-6 loss on the road Wednesday night in a Northeast Wisconsin Baseball and Wisconsin State League contest. Brock Wetenkamp went 2-for-5 at the plate for Manitowoc with a double and Sam Spurney was 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles. Pitcher Brennan Rhode received the loss after striking out six and walking one batter in six and two-thirds innings of work. Only three of the seven runs he gave up were earned.
