Green Bay’s late fight isn’t enough
WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. – The Booyah fell at the hands of the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters at Witter Park on Thursday evening, 7-3.
After a fine night offensively on Wednesday, the Booyah bats were stifled early on Thursday. Green Bay struggled to get the hits going until late in the contest as they finished with seven hits. In his debut, Dalton Pearson (Georgia State) recorded two hits in four at-bats.
In the eighth inning, after Nadir Lewis (Princeton) walked and back-to-back singles by Pearson and Tristin Garcia (Alcorn State), Nathan Blasick (West Virginia) was able to connect on single of his own that drove in two. Bubba Thompson then hit into a fielder’s choice that scored another.
Ben Hampton was hit hard in his season debut. He allowed four runs, and 10 hits in 4.2 innings of work. He finishes with a loss, dropping to 0-1 on the summer season. Fellow West Virginia Mountaineer Tyler Chadwick pitched 1.1 innings in relief in his debut. He did not allow a hit.
The Booyah will give the nod to Mason Patel (Georgia State) for Friday’s duel against the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders. The Knoxville, Tennessee native pitched 16 innings, allowing seven earned runs during the spring. First pitch from Herr-Baker Field is scheduled for 6:35 p.m.
