It's an important week for Brookfield High School Baseball this week, as Central and East battle each other Thursday and Friday.
Earlier this week the second-place Spartans (9-4) split with Marquette, losing on the road on Monday and then winning Tuesday night behind a brilliant 2-0 6-hitter by Brian Sylla at home. East is only one game in the loss column behind first-place Muskego (12-3).
Central bounced back from a loss to Falls (8-6) on Monday and clobbered the Indians, 10-3, on Tuesday at McCoy Field. Mike Mierow slammed a 3-run homer and drove in four runs and Billy Calawerts had a double and two singles to spark the hitting. Collin O'Gorman didn't allow an earned run in seven innings.
Keep sharp instruments away from TE coach Matt Dahlstrom. East dropped a 5-4 decision to Hamilton in the bottom of the seventh when the Chargers scored twice for the win. Brian Schneider and Dan Sayles homered in the loss.
If the Red Raiders are going to have a winning record, they can't afford to lose games like this with their ace (Sayles) on the mound.
