Brookfield East (18-13) scored the winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning when pinch runner Andy Wiesen raced in from third on a short wild pitch to score the game-winner in a 6-5 win over Pewaukee. The Pirates (12-20) found their season coming to a close after a thrilling win over Arrowhead on Tuesday in the regional.
Mike Erberle had walked to lead off the inning and Wiesen pinch-ran for him. After a pick-off attempt went astray, Wiesen moved to second. Brian Sylla was intentionally walked, and Drew Kehoe was safe when the pitcher Jodan Hass made a wide throw on his sacrifice attempt.
With John Foley batting, Hass threw a ball in the dirt back to the screen. Wiesen hesitated, then raced for home to score as the ball, Wiesen and Haas arrived at the same time.
East led 3-1 when Pewaukee scored twice in the fifth on a two-run double by Austin Kaatz to tie the game. But Pat O'Brien, who homered in the first inning, ripped a single to right scoring Brandt Rogers, who had walked and stole second to start the fifth.
Leading 5-3 in the seventh, the Pirates scored twice to tie the game, on two errors and a sac fly by Kaatz.
But then the Spartans scored off the Pirates in their final at bat and handed them their ninth walk-off loss of the year.
