ASHWAUBENON, Wis. – The Green Bay Booyah earned a walk-off win over the Madison Mallards on Thursday at Capital Credit Union Park, 4-3.

In the sixth, the Mallards were able to even it up after an RBI double by Joe Hauser. They took the lead in the eighth inning when two runs came in via a pair of errors by the Booyah.
But in the bottom of the eighth, the Booyah were able to load the bases after stringing together three straight singles. After two men struck out, Jake Berg (Jacksonville) hit a two-run double to score Brendan Ryan (Texas A&M-Corpus Christi) and Dalton Pearson (Georgia State) to tie things at three.
