Green Bay ends road trip

by: Manny Rodriguez

KOKOMO, Ind. The Green Bay Booyah fell in Kokomo to the Jackrabbits, 6-5, in ten innings on Sunday afternoon.

The Booyah trailed after an inning of play, 2-0, but Johnny Hipsman (Richmond) laced a home run to right field in the second to half the deficit. The Booyah then added another two in the third thanks to a Jake Berg (Jacksonville) single with the bases loaded that scored Nadir Lewis (Princeton) and Max Wagner (Clemson). With that, the Booyah led 3-2.

Green Bay added to their lead in the sixth inning after Brendan Ryan (Texas A&M-Corpus Christi) hit a single that scored Hipsman. On the ensuing at-bat, Lewis hit a single of his own that plated Ryan to make it 5-2.

The Jackrabbits were able to answer in the bottom of the inning by scoring three and tying it at five.

The score would remain tied until the 10th inning, when the Jackrabbits hit a leadoff single down the right field line to walk-off.

Ben Hart (Dixie State) pitched 5.1 innings, allowing ten hits, five runs, one walk while punching out three. He left in the sixth inning after getting hit in the foot with a comebacker. He finished with a no decision.

With the loss, the Booyah return home from their three-game road trip winless.
