Green Bay dominates Kenosha
by: Manny Rodriguez
ASHWAUBENON, Wis. – The Green Bay Booyah defeated the Kenosha Kingfish on Thursday at Capital Credit Union Park, 13-5.
The Booyah got off to a quick start, a 2-0 lead after one thanks to a pair of RBIs by Jake Berg (Jacksonville) and Dayson Croes (Quincy).
The Kingfish answered with two in the top of the second inning but in the bottom half, the Booyah began to pull away. A five-run inning included a two-run double by Dalton Pearson (Georgia State) and a two-run home run to right field by Berg. This made it a 7-2 ballgame.
The Booyah added one in the third courtesy of Elias Flowers’ (Jacksonville) sacrifice fly that scored Nathan Blasick (West Virginia). In the fourth, the power hour continued for Green Bay. They added two thanks to a two-run home run to right field by Kaden Hollow (Dixie State). That gave the Booyah a 10-2 lead.
Next inning, Nadir Lewis (Princeton) and Brendan Ryan (Texas A&M-Corpus Christi) slugged back-to-back home runs. Lewis’ two-run shot, and Ryan’s solo home run made it 13-2.
Kenosha scored three in the eighth, but it wasn’t enough. A 13-5 win makes it six straight wins for the Booyah.
Ryan Stefiuk (Vanderbilt) picked up his first win of the season, pitching 5.2 innings, allowing five hits, two runs with six strikeouts.
