Green Bay unable to hold on to early lead
by: Manny Rodriguez
MEQUON, Wis. – The Green Bay Booyah fell to the Lakeshore Chinooks at Kapco Park, 13-3.
After getting behind in the run column after an inning, the Booyah showed grit by cutting the two-run deficit to one after Jake Schroeder’s (Northern Illinois) first run batted in of the summer scored Tristin Garcia (Western Kentucky).
The Booyah then scored two in the third inning when Johnny Hipsman (Richmond) collected an RBI that scored Brendan Ryan (Texas A&M-Corpus Christi) and Nick Dagnello’s (College of Charleston) sacrifice fly scored Hispman to take a one-run lead.
But the Chinooks woke up after that and scored 11 unanswered runs to run away with the ballgame.
Despite the loss, the Booyah hold the season series lead of the Chinooks, 4-3.
The Booyah will look for redemption tomorrow as they will meet up with the Chinooks on Saturday at Capital Credit Union Park. First pitch is scheduled for 4:05 p.m.
The Booyah will give the ball to ace Logan Lee (Northwood) on Saturday. The Michigan native, who is in his third season in Green Bay, is 3-0 on the season with a 2.42 ERA.
