by: Manny Rodriguez
ASHWAUBENON, Wis. – The Green Bay Booyah six-game winning streak came to an end on Friday after a 2-0 loss to the Kenosha Kingfish at Capital Credit Union Park.
Both pitching staffs played well on Friday as the two teams combined for nine hits. Logan Lee (Northwood) gave up the only two runs of the game on a home run to right field. He went six innings, allowing five hits, three walks while striking out four. Mason Coon (Illinois-Springfield) pitched three innings of no-hit ball out of the bullpen picking up five punch outs on the way. He walked just one.
But the run support shown over the last week was not present. The first three men in the lineup combined to go 0-for-12 on Friday. Tristin Garcia (Western Kentucky) picked up two hits in the loss. Elias Flowers (Jacksonville) and Kaden Hollow (Dixie State) picked up the other two Booyah hits.
Green Bay will head to Wisconsin Rapids on Saturday to take on the Rafters as they start a two-game series. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 pm. Evan Estridge (Clemson) is slated to take the mound for the Booyah.
