Green Bay falls to Fond du Lac

by: Manny Rodriguez

FOND DU LAC, Wis. The Green Bay Booyah fell in extra innings to the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders, 7-6 on Tuesday.

The Booyah had a 2-0 lead after a half inning thanks to a two-run double to right field by Kaden Hollow (Dixie State) that scored Dalton Pearson (Georgia State) and Dayson Croes (Quincy). But, in the bottom of the first, the Dock Spiders grabbed two of their own to even it.

The Dock Spiders wouldn’t stop there. They scored another two in the second inning to take a two-run lead and scored another run in the fourth to make the difference 5-2.

But the Booyah had a big seventh inning with a new pitcher on the bump for the Dock Spiders. With the bases loaded and one out, Brendan Ryan (Texas A&M-Corpus Christi) worked a walk to bring in Tyler Hollow (Dixie State). With Pearson at-bat, Elias Flowers (Jacksonville) scored on a wild pitch to make it a one-run game. Pearson then had a sacrifice fly that scored Nadir Lewis (Princeton) to tie the game. Croes then hit a double to center field that scored Ryan and gave the Booyah a one-run lead.

But in the ninth, pinch hitter Victor Scott hit a leadoff double and later came around to score on a sacrifice fly to tie the game. In the tenth, after the Booyah came up empty, Calvin Harris had a single with one out to score Tavian Josenberger for the win.

The Booyah look ahead to a pair of games on Wednesday in Wausau as they will take on the Woodchucks. Game one will begin at 12:05 pm and game two will start at 6:35 pm.
