West Allis - The winning streak continued for the West Allis Nighthawks last week.
West Allis swept a doubleheader from North Shore, 6-0 and 9-7, in the Land O' Lakes Eastern Division on Sunday. The Nighthawks improved to 7-4, good for third place behind leader Muskego and New Berlin.
Jon Mann hurled the shutout, allowing just five hits and striking out 12. Ryan Welch went 3-for-5 with a home run and three runs batted in, while Joel Hoberg was 4-for-5 with an RBI, Andy Schwall 1-for-3 with an RBI and Ian Malmstadt 2-for-4.
