Ashwaubenon, WI – The Green Bay Booyah return to Capital Credit Union Park for three out of their next four games as they open up a four-game series against the Wisconsin Woodchucks.

The Booyah were unable to get the bats moving yesterday in a 3-0 loss at Wisconsin Rapids. Green Bay was shut out for the first time this season, with Max Wagner being the only player to reach third base for the Booyah on Sunday afternoon.
