Green Bay can’t hold on to lead
by: Manny Rodriguez
MADISON, Wis. – The Green Bay Booyah fell to the Madison Mallards on Thursday evening, 7-5.
The Booyah had an early lead as Kaden Hollow (Dixie State) and Jake Berg (Jacksonville) were able to connect for a pair of RBI singles in the first frame.
After the Mallards were able to cut their deficit to one, the Booyah were able to answer with two runs in the third inning, thanks to a two-run home run the opposite way by Max Wagner (Clemson).
However, six unanswered runs over the next three innings put the Booyah behind on the scoreboard. Things got a little more interesting in the seventh inning, when Wagner connected for his second home run of the game, a solo shot to left to make it 7-5. The Booyah had a chance in the ninth inning when they were able to get the go-ahead run to the dish, but a deep fly out to center field ended the game,
Wagner was able to get on base in all five plate appearances as he went 2-for-2 with three walks.
Green Bay will start Logan Lee (Northwood) on Friday evening to end the series. This will be his fourth appearance of the season.
