Murray Hurls Complete Game to Improve Five O's to 3-1

5/22/2016
The Five O's are off to their best start since 2010 behind the right arm of Jordan Murray who tossed a complete game win against formed Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Don August and the Menomonee Falls Lakers on Sunday. Jordan spread out four runs (two earned) on eight hits while striking out six, walking six and hitting two batters. After an uprising by Pabst Blue Ribbon fans last week, they were elated to see Murray bring his pregame attempt back to the team huddle and he did not disappoint. Those PBR fans are quick to point out that the team is 3-0 this year when the Blue Ribbon is involved.

Oconomowoc took an early lead with a run in the top of the 1st and another in the 3rd. Falls came back to tie it with two runs in the bottom of the 5th. The Five O's answered with two more runs in the top of the 6th to make it 4-2 with hits by Derek Nelson and David Beluschak. Things remained that way until the bottom of the 8th when Falls was able to ding Murray for two more runs, tieing the game at 4-4. The Lakers threatened to take the lead but Murray stranded the go-ahead run on second base and that was as close as they would come to scoring the rest of the game. In the top of the 9th leadoff hitter Chris Trafton worked an incredible walk after starting down in the count 0-2 and then stole second base. Josh Bouche then stepped up with a scorching double to center field to give Oconomowoc a 5-4 lead. Menomonee Falls managed a single in the 9th but Murray made sure he did not advance past first base and sealed the win with his 6th strikeout.

Leading the offense for the Five O's was Josh Bouche who was 3 for 5 with 2 RBIs including the eventual game winning RBI in the top of the 9th. Jeff Rhoads contributed two hits as well.

The win improves Oconomowoc to 3-1 in the LOL - which ties them for second place in their division. They have a double dip Memorial Day weekend ahead of them with a game on Saturday at home against Merton and then traveling to Sussex on Sunday. Both games start at 1:00 pm.
