Wearing their throwback uniforms, the Brookfield Bulldogs continued to roll Sunday at McCoy Field.
The Bulldogs moved into a first-place tie with West Bend after league-leading Pewaukee suffered a 2-1 loss to Merton.
Brookfield's 9-3 win over Monches on Sunday moved the Bulldogs to 12-4 on the year. Kris Franzen went 3 for 5 with three steals and an RBI, leading his teams 13-hit attack.
Jason Rutz also went 2 for 3 with a pair of doubles and two swipes, and Ryan Hinz went 2 for 4 with an RBI. Ernest Castro was also 2 for 4, and Jeff Lueck went 2 for 3.
Josh Lemke got the start and gave up two earned runs on five hits in three innings of work. Greg Basthemer got the win the day after his bachelor party, giving up no runs on two hits while striking out four and walking just one in four innings.
Mike Mierow closed the door, giving up one run on three hits while striking out a pair in two frames. The Bulldogs finished with nine stolen bases.
It won't be the last they see of Monches, with a rematch on the road set for 1 p.m. Sunday.
