ASHWAUBENON, WI— It was a four hour long slugfest between the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders (5-8) and the Green Bay Booyah (10-3). The Dock Spiders held a five run lead at one point, but the Booyah wouldn’t go down quietly. 

 

An RBI double in the first inning by Kellen Sarver (Illinois) got the team on the board first. They would hold the one run lead into the third before the bats started to get hot. 

 

A four run third inning made it 5-0. Tim Elko (Mississippi) hit a three-run home run, and Luke Robinson (Western Carolina) would go back-to-back with a solo shot. 

 

Aaron Ball Jr. (Kankakee) got the start and gave up a two-run home run in the bottom of the third to cut the lead to three. Green Bay wasn’t done from there, they would add six runs in the fifth and sixth inning combined. 

 

After a three run fifth inning by the Booyah, Robinson came up and hit another solo home run to tie the game at six. 

 

They were down 9-6 going into the final three innings. The Booyah would walk in two runs for the Dock Spiders and cut the deficit to 9-8. 

 

Another three run inning by the Booyah made it 12-8 going into the final frame. Sarver would lead off with a solo home run. 

 

An Elko double gave the offense hope. Elko would come around to score and cut it to 12-10. They couldn’t answer to anymore runs and would lose 12-10. 

 

These two teams will face off tomorrow night in Fond du Lac at 6:35 PM. It’ll be the last game of the year between these two teams. It’s also “Pokemania” night.
