PREVIEW - DC Everest vs Medford and Shawano

by Chris Conley

EVERYTHING EVERGREENS (FOX SPORTS WAUSAU WSAU) Baseball's funny this way. At last weekends triangular, I thought Oconomowoc was the best of the three team. And thats the team the Evergreens beat. I thought Kenosha-Indian Trails was the worst of the three, and that's who we lost to. Leaving five men in scoring position in the last two innings didn't help.

Here's what we know about the Evergreens so far: they can hit (10, 8 and 15 hits in their first three games). The pitching, which isnt as good as last year, has been more-than-adequate. The defense, which was poor last year, looks much improved.

I'd like to see if the bats stay hot against a pitching-rich team like SPASH or Marshfield. Instead, the snow has cooled things off for a few days. Tuesdays home opener against Medford is rescheduled for May 8. Thursday's home game against Shawano will probably be cancelled as well. Its too bad, because the Evergreens were likely sitting on two wins. Both of this weeks opponents were 0-2 with non-competitive losses to open their seasons. I'd have liked the Evergreens to have a few more games under their belt before their game against Stevens Point next Tuesday.
