Green Bay has their three-game win streak snapped in series finale
Ashwaubenon, WI – The Green Bay Booyah fell back to .500 on the season as they fell 6-1 against the Loggers on Thursday night.
La Crosse grabbed the lead in the early going, scoring within the first two batters of the game off a single from Kobe Kato.

Starting pitcher Garrett Martin fell to 1-1 on the year, and Green Bay now is 11-11 overall.
At the plate, the Booyah were led by Nick Kreutzer who went 3-for4 with two singles and a double.
