The St. Stephen Steves are returning to the Region 8C Tournament for the 8th consecutive year after an 8-6 win over the Freeport Black Sox on Saturday at Trobec Memorial Field.  The Steves jumped out early with a bases-loaded walk to Ben Omann and a 2-run single by Brandon Waldvogel to make it 3-0 after 1 inning.  St. Stephen added another 3 runs in the bottom of the 3rd when Cody Wolhart led off with his first career Victory League Homer to make it 4-0, Blake Guggenberger then was hit by a pitch, Ben Omann singled with 1 out, Brandon Waldvogel walked to load the bases and Mitch Reller walked Nick Krippner to force in a run to make it 5-o.  Freeport then brought in lefty Nate Winter to pitch.  Ben Bierscheid delivered a sacrifice fly to make it 6-0 before Winter got the 3rd out of the inning on a fly out to right and the Steves led 6-0 after 3 innings.  In the top of the 4th, Freeport got on the scoreboard when Troy Frieler took a lead-off walk and then Brandon Sawyer drove a Home-Run over the wall in left-center to make it 6-2.  The Steves responded with a 2-run Homer of their own in the bottom of the 4th when Tony Schmitz cracked a 2-run shot to right-center with Blake Guggenberger aboard to make it 8-2 after 4. It stayed that way until the top of the 8th when the Black Sox made a big push.  It began with Jake Braegelmann's lead-off, ground-rule double.  That hit spelled the end of the day for Steves starter Chris Belling, who gave way to Tony Schmitz.  Carter Sawyer walked to put 2 men on with no outs.  A Troy Frieler single to right filled the bases.  Brandon Sawyer's sacrifice fly to center made it 8-3.  Eric Evaslage then crushed a 3-run Homer and suddenly it was 8-6.  The Steves then went back to the bullpen, bringing in Blake Guggenberger.  He had thrown a Complete-Game against Freeport last weekend in a 7-6 Steves win.  Guggenberger registered back-to-back strikeouts to end the inning with the Steves lead trimmed to 2 at 8-6.  In the bottom of the 8th, Freeport righty Eddie Zambrona, who relieved Nate Winter with 1 out in the 7th, worked a scoreless bottom of the 8th to give the Black Sox one last chance.  Bryan Benson reached base on an infield error to lead off, meaning that the Sox would have 3 chances with the potential tying run at the plate.  Blake Guggenberger got Trevor Sawyer to ground out to 1st, advancing Benson to 2nd with 1 out.  Guggenberger then fanned Jake Braegelmann for out #2 and got a ground out to shortstop off the bat of Carter Sawyer to end the game with the Steves winning 8-6.  St. Stephen will go to Avon Sunday to face the Lakers for the South Division Title, beginning at 1:00 pm.  A second game would follow if the Steves win the first game.
