This will be the fifth and sixth time these two teams meet over the last 11 days. The Booyah enter this game with three straight victories. The last time the Booyah lost was on July 2 to the Chinooks, a 13-3 loss at Kapco Park.
The Booyah enter the ballgame fresh off yesterday’s win over the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters, 10-8. The Booyah used a four-run fourth and fifth inning to throttle ahead. The Rafters didn’t wave the white flag however as they scored the final five runs of the game, including three in the ninth, to cut their deficit down to two. The go-ahead run came to the plate and flew out to right field to end the game.
