Pitching comes alive, O's win 3
Win first half ender & second-half opener
June 29, 1994

Five O's player Bob Anderson takes a mighty cut during action Sunday at North Lake. Anderson and the O's went 3-for-3 over the weekend in Land O'Lakes league action

   After going through slugfests for the past two weeks, the Oconomowoc Five O's were looking for some pitching this past weekend.
   It got what it was looking for.
   Eric Olson, Chad Brown and Kevin Karenz churned out three straight wins, helped along by a coolly efficient offensive attack, to help the O's start out the Land O'Lakes second-half season.
   Saturday afternoon, the O's defeated Genesee at Roosevelt Field to close out the first half, manufacturing three runs in the first inning on only two hits.
   Genesee rallied to take a 5-3 lead in the fifth, but Cooney's Tim Nelson continued to terrorize Land O'Lakes pitching as he smashed a two-run home run to tie the score.
   Nelson also belted a solo homer in the seventh to break a 6-6 tie.
   The O's coasted downhill to a 10-6 win as Olsen went the distance on the mound, allowing just one hit in the final three innings.
   Oconomowoc immediately left Roosevelt Field after the victory to travel to West Bend for round two of the four-round West Bend Classic. Chad Brown delivered a masterful effort on the hill, and the O's edged Waukesha 3-2 in extra innings.
   The winning run scored as Mike Michalsky drew a bases-loaded walk to bring home Nelson.
   On Sunday afternoon, Oconomowoc sojourned to North Lake to open second-half play. The Lakers touched Karenz for two runs in the first inning before Oconomowoc rallied to build a 5-2 lead.
   Jeff Ranta led the offense with four hits, while Steve Smith added three.
   Karenz mowed through the Lakers lineup until Brian Tolzman ripped a three-run homer to tie the score in the sixth inning.
   The blow was just a momentary chink in Karenz' armor though as he went unscathed the rest of the way.
   The O's took the lead back in the seventh inning when Smith singled home Nelson. The team also added two more runs down the stretch.
   The O's record now stands at 9-3 overall. The 4th of July weekend will see the O's host Monches on Sunday and Merton on Monday. Both games start at 1:30 p.m.
   In late action Monday night, the O's were knocked out of the West Bend Tournament by host West Bend.
   The O's would up on the short end of a 13-5 score, possibly in part to the game's late start.
Because of a miscommunication at the playing site, the tournament game, scheduled for 9 p.m., did not get underway until 11 p.m., resulting in a late night for most of the players.
   The O's were scheduled to play another game at 7 p.m. Tuesday night.
