Green Bay’s late push isn’t enough
by: Manny Rodriguez
ASHWAUBENON, Wis. – The Green Bay Booyah fell to the Wisconsin Woodchucks, 6-5, at Capital Credit Union Park on Monday night.
The Booyah trailed after an inning and a half as the Woodchucks were able to get four runs across off Evan Estridge (Clemson). He would settle down later and keep the Woodchucks offense in check.
A two-run home run by Jake Berg (Jacksonville) in the sixth inning made things 4-2, but the Woodchucks were able to return fire by scoring one in the seventh and one in the eighth to make it a four-run ballgame again.
The Booyah were able to make things interesting following an electrifying three-run home run by Nadir Lewis (Princeton) to cut the deficit to one. But Green Bay was unable to answer afterwards and fell at home, snapping a three-game home winning streak.
Max Wagner (Clemson) continues to play at a high level as he was able to record another two knocks and watches his batting average increase to .349. Elias Flowers (Jacksonville) also recorded a multi-hit game.
Estridge was able to punch out eight men in the loss.
