Mequon, WI – For the first time since June 5th, the Green Bay Booyah found a way to win on the road in a 5-2 victory over the Chinooks on Thursday night.

The hit brought in Mike Ferri from second and Cooper Morrison from first.
In the top of the fourth, Green Bay scored again, this time off an RBI double from Jacob Buchberger that scored Nick Kreutzer from second base. Buchberger finished the day 1-4 with an RBI. The Booyah scored yet again in the fifth inning when Blaise Maris brought in Jarrett Ford on a sacrifice fly.
At the plate, West finished 2-4 with two RBIs in total. Morrison went 1-3, and Ford went 1-4 with two runs scored. Kreutzer finished the day 1-3 with an RBI on a walk, and Maris also went 1-3. In total, the Booyah picked up nine hits, four walks, and only struck out six times.
