The Green Bay Bullfrogs are hosting the Kalamazoo Growlers tonight in a two game doubleheader. The Bullfrogs come into the game with an 11-21 record. The Growlers are 15-18 on the season and are coming off of a huge win over the Bullfrogs 19-6. The Frogs and Growlers have both been eliminated from the playoffs and the games tonight will decide who takes 9th place for the season. The Bullfrogs are 3-3 against the Growlers this season. If the Bullfrogs can manage a sweep today Kalamazoo would be the first team that Bullfrogs would have a season series win against.
Yesterday was originally supposed to be a doubleheader, however, rain in the area and some rough field conditions postponed the first of yesterday’s games by three hours. Our staff here with the Bullfrogs worked very hard getting the field playable for last night’s game. The Bullfrogs will play another doubleheader on Sunday against the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders to close the season. The Growlers will be playing four games in 48 hours as they have a doubleheader on Saturday as.
Last night the Bullfrogs lost to the Growlers in ugly fashion 19-6. Last night’s game was a continuation game from June 12th. The game started in the top of the second inning with two runners on for the Growlers. The Growlers would take advantage of the extra base runners scoring six runs in that first inning of play. They would go on to plate another run in third, two in the fifth and five in the sixth and seventh. Dan Leckie would hit a home run in the fifth inning for the Bullfrogs avoiding the shut out. The Frogs would manage to plate two runs in the eighth and three in the ninth off of some relief pitching for the Growlers.
Dan Leckie was last night’s Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine Player of the Game. Leckie hit his fourth home run of the season. Leckie’s stat line on the night 3-4, 1 HR, 2 R, 1 RBI.
