Green Bay to have another twin bill
by: Manny Rodriguez
ASHWAUBENON, Wis. – The Green Bay Booyah are slated to play in a second doubleheader in as many days. They will be hosting the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters in a day/night doubleheader.
The Booyah come into the game sliding in the standings. After a pair of losses last night, the Booyah have now lost six straight games. After beginning the season with five straight losses, the Booyah rattled off eight wins in 11 games, but are now on this slide.
Last night, the Booyah plated two in the eighth inning courtesy of Kaden Hollow (Dixie State) and Tristin Garcia (Western Kentucky) but the deficit was too much as they fell in the first game, 5-2 to the Woodchucks. The second game was tough for the Booyah as well as they were able to tie the ballgame at four in the fourth inning. But the Woodchucks answered right back with five runs in the bottom of the fourth to break things wide open. The Booyah fell in the nightcap, 10-5.
Moving to today’s doubleheader, the Booyah and Rafters will play a game at 12:05 pm and at 6:35 pm at Capital Credit Union Park. The Booyah dropped the two meetings between the teams back in the first week of the season.
