Garcia continues to shine as Kenosha falters in 9th inning.
The Kingfish dropped their second straight contest Saturday night, as they blew a 2-0 lead in the 9th inning, losing to the Madison Mallards 4-2. Kenosha's starter Rico Garcia turned in another great performance off the mound, earning his first Pitcher of the Night honor of the season.
Coming off an all-star worthy 2014 season, Garcia returned to Kenosha for his second season, and picked up right where he left off, dominating in his first two appearances. Tonight the junior from Hawaii Pacific hurled seven shut out innings, allowed just two hits and struck out eight batters, but factored into a no-decision, as his bullpen could not maintain the lead. Garcia still remains without a win or loss, while possessing 15 strikeouts over 12 innings pitched.
Kenosha will look for their 20th win of the season as they travel to Green Bay to face off against the Bullfrogs at 1:05 PM.
