Green Bay Booyah 5, Fond du Lac Dock Spiders 4
The Dock Spiders rallied late, scoring a run in the sixth and two runs in the seventh before pushing across the tying run in the top of the ninth, but Green Bay would have the last laugh, as they walked off the Dock Spiders on a single from Andy Blake (Columbia) that scored Stephen Hrustich (Northwestern University), sending the crowd home happy. The Booyah jacked a pair of home runs, as Brady West (North Greenville) and Alec Burns (West Virginia) both went deep, with Burns picking up three RBI as well. Blake was a perfect 3-3 at the plate with a run scored and the game-winning RBI. Jack Mahoney (Wisconsin-Milwaikee) got the start on the bump for the Booyah and threw four clean innings allowing two hits but no runs. Joe Taylor (Nicholls State) would pick up the win despite giving up the game-tying run, as he threw one inning allowing three hits and recording a strikeout.

Rockford Rivets 9 Wisconsin Woodchucks 5
The Rivets swept the series against the Woodchucks on Monday thanks in part to a sixth inning grand slam off the bat of Chase Estep (Kentucky) that broke the tie and gave the Rivets their first lead of the game. The loss dropped the Woodchucks to 0-5 on the season despite a strong pitching performance from Brett Wicklund (Illinois State), who threw five innings, allowing three unearned runs and recording a strikeout. Myles Austin (Alabama) led the Woodchucks offense, going 3-5 with two singles, a double and an RBI.

The big play of the inning came when HARRIS ripped a double into center field to score a pair of runs for the Larks. Myles Harris (Boise State) would finish the game 1-3, with two RBI. The only Lark to record multiple hits was Brant Schaffitzel (Drury), who was 2-3 with a run scored and an RBI. Brian Baker (Northern State) got the start on the hill for the Larks, and threw five innings, allowing two runs on three hits with six strikeouts to pick up the win.

Minnesota-Iowa Pod
Rochester Honkers 5 Mankato Moondogs 4
The Moondogs fell behind early after a four-run first inning for the Honkers, but couldn’t complete the comeback, as they remain winless on the season.
