WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. – The Green Bay Booyah defeated the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters at Witter Field on Sunday, 6-2.
The Booyah got out to an early lead when Tyler Hollow (Dixie State) hit a double the opposite way that scored Johnny Hipsman (Richmond) in the second. The Booyah tacked on another in third when Jake Berg (Jacksonville) pulled a single to right field that plated Dalton Pearson (Georgia State). In the fourth, Preston Hall (College of Charleston) hit a solo home run to right field, his first of the season.
Green Bay would add another two in the sixth when Hollow hit a single that scored Hipsman and Nick Dagnello (College of Charleston) hit one the opposite way that scored Jake Schroeder (Northern Illinois).
The Rafters would threaten in the seventh inning. After loading the bases and scoring one with one away, Boston Mabeus (BYU) was facing a pinch hitter in Andrew Duran. Duran hit a line drive back at Mabeus who caught the comebacker and flipped to first for the inning ending double play.
In the ninth, the Booyah got a little insurance thanks to Dayson Croes’ (Quincy) single the other way that scored Elias Flowers (Jacksonville).
The Rafters scored one in the ninth and had the tying-run at the plate, but he flew out to Pearson on the warning track to end the game.
Evan Estridge (Clemson) pitched six-plus innings, allowing four hits and just one run. He did not allow a walk and punched out eight hitters. He picked up his third win of the season to improve to 3-3.
