FOND DU LAC, WI – After falling behind in the first inning, the Dock Spiders would continue to chase the lead throughout the night, however, Fondy’s ninth inning rally would fall short. The Lakeshore Chinooks defeated Fond du Lac 4-3 on Wednesday night. The Dock Spiders would load the bases with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, but no runs were able to score as Fond du Lac suffered its first loss of the 2021 season.

Key Plays

  • Later in the eighth, Lakeshore’s Dalton Doyle gave the Chinooks the eventual game-winning run with an RBI single
