ASHWAUBENON, Wis. – The Green Bay Booyah are looking to get back to .500 tonight as they are slated to host the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders to begin a home-and-home series.
Green Bay enters tonight’s matchup off a sweep of the Kokomo Jackrabbits. In both games, the Booyah found themselves trailing early, but the combination of the pitching settling down and the bats heating up led to comeback wins. The Booyah have won seven of their last ten games, making them the hottest team in the Great Lakes West Division over that span.
The last time the Booyah and Dock Spiders went up against each other was on June 5th at Capital Credit Union Park. On that hot Saturday evening, the Booyah picked up their first win of the season as Logan Lee (Northwood) got the win. Dayson Croes (Quincy), Dalton Pearson (Georgia State) and Nathan Blasick (West Virginia) combined to go 9-for-13 in the win.
The Booyah will give the ball to Ryan Stefiuk (Vanderbilt) on Thursday. The Green Bay native is 0-1 on the season, pitching 10 innings, allowing 10 hits, nine runs, seven earned, nine walks, while striking out eight. The Dock Spiders will start Carlson Reed. He has made one appearance, pitching 3.1 innings, allowing two hits, two runs, both unearned, five walks with four strikeouts.

Half price taps through the end of the fifth inning.
