Wolverines Fall in GLHL Semis – Sunday Sports Wrap


The Calumet Wolverines ended their run in the Great Lakes Hockey League tournament with a 4-3 overtime loss to the Fox Cities Ice Dogs in their semifinal game last night. Fox Cities took an early 2-0 lead. Calumet tied the game with goals by Mike Babcock and Josh Harju. After the Ice Dogs scored early in the third period, Logan Rastello’s tally with less than four minutes remaining in regulation forced the extra frame. Ben Fiedman scored the game-winner for Fox Cities three minutes into the overtime. Ian Carroll made 43 saves.

The Wolverines advanced to the semifinals by shutting out the De Pere Deacons 5-0 yesterday morning.

The Mosinee Papermakers surprised the West Bend Bombers 3-2 in the other semifinal, and will face the Ice Dogs for the GLHL tournament title this afternoon.


The Detroit Tigers got just five hits in a 3-0 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays yesterday afternoon. It was Detroit’s second-straight shutout loss. Starter Spencer Turnbull gave up three runs over five innings.

The Tigers play at Toronto again this afternoon. Matt Moore will start against Trent Thornton. Pregame coverage will begin at 12:45 on 99.3 The Lift.

Miguel Cabrera was hit on the hand by a pitch in yesterday’s game. X-rays showed no serious damage, and he may be available as the designated hitter today.

The Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Saint Louis Cardinals 4-2 last night. Christian Yelich became the first Brewer ever to hit a home run in the first three games of the season. Travis Shaw and Mike Moustakas also homered. Milwaukee starter Brandon Woodruff gave up two runs over five innings, and got the win. Josh Hader closed the game with an immaculate inning – one foul ball, and seven swinging strikes.

The Brewers host the Cardinals again tonight. Corbin Burnes will pitch against Michael Wacha.


The Detroit Red Wings host the Boston Bruins this evening. Pregame coverage begins at 7:10 on 99.3 The Lift.

There are multiple media reports indicating that the Wings are ready to extend the contract of head coach Jeff Blashill for two more seasons. An official announcement could be made early this week.


Reggie Jackson scored 28 points, as the Detroit Pistons defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 99-90 last night. Blake Griffin missed the game after experiencing soreness in his left knee. He’s considered day-to-day. The Pistons will visit the Indiana Pacers on Monday.


The Finlandia University baseball team dropped both of its games at Wisconsin-Oshkosh yesterday, falling 10-0 in the opener, and dropping the nightcap 21-7. Those teams will play another doubleheader in Oshkosh today.

The Lions baseball team has added three new recruits for next season. Jonathan Baumler is an outfielder from Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Crespin Herrera-Kult is a pitcher from Alexandria, Minnesota. Yadiel Sevilla is a pitcher from Tampa, Florida.
