BEN VEHLOW

Waterloo McKays shortstop Ben Vehlow knocks down a throw while Fort Atkinson General Owen Chady steals second in a Sunday, July 21 game.

The Waterloo McKays’ losing streak reached nine games following a pair of Home Talent Sunday League defeats — in two different cities — Sunday.

The McKays began the day in Albion and lost 10-0 in eight innings to the Southeast Section-leading Tigers.

Waterloo then packed up and headed to Fort Atkinson, dropping a 13-1 seven-inning decision to the Generals.

Against Albion, the Tigers (13-1) used home runs by Lucas Gregory and Jaden Johnson and had 11 hits as they clinched a share of the regular-season title and home field advantage throughout the Southeast playoffs.

Gregory’s three-run home run highlighted a four-run second inning, while Johnson led off the fifth with a circuit clout.

Louis Hensler led the McKays at the plate going 3-for-4. Brett Jakel and Ben Vehlow had the other hits.

Against Fort Atkinson, Waterloo managed just one run off two Generals pitchers. That run came in the fourth inning when Weston Swartztrauber singled and scored on Jordan Hensler’s two-out RBI single.

Hensler had two of the McKays’ three hits, while Swartztrauber had the other.

The loss dropped Waterloo’s Southeast Section record to 1-11.

UP NEXT

The McKays (3-14 overall) return to action Thursday hosting the Stoughton Merchants in a 7:30 p.m. East Night League start at Firemen’s Park.

Waterloo then will play Cambridge in a Sunday League doubleheader on Sunday in Cambridge. Game 1 will begin at 11 a.m. with Game 2 to follow.
