Sun Prairie, Wis. -

A month ago on the baseball diamond, Middleton beat Sun Prairie 5-2. That game was at Middleton. During Tuesday's Prep Mania Game of the Week, this time in Sun Prairie, the home team got revenge against their Big Eight rivals with a 3-2 Sun Prairie win in eight innings. 

The teams were scoreless in the 3rd inning when Sun Prairie's Michael Marchese hit a fly ball to right field to score Brian Assalone and gave the host Cardinals a 1-0 lead. The very next batter, Zach Fairchild, hit one up the middle to score Marchese and pushed the Sun Prairie lead to 2-0. 

In the 4th, Middleton responded, scoring on a bases loaded walk and a fielder's choice. 

The score stayed tied through seven innings. In the 8th, Fairchild again stepped into the batter's box with Marchese on 1st. Fairchild hit a line drive into the left-center field gap that scored Marchese and gave Sun Prairie a 3-2 win. 

Sun Prairie is now 14-2 in the Big Eight, while Middleton falls to 6-4.
