Fond du Lac holds off Green Bay late
by: Manny Rodriguez
ASHWAUBENON, Wis. – The Green Bay Booyah fell to the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders on Saturday night at Capital Credit Union Park, 3-2.
The Dock Spiders drew first blood as they were able to score a run in the second and the third inning. The score would remain stagnant over the next three innings until the Dock Spiders added an unearned run in the seventh to make the difference three.
Green Bay began working their magic in the bottom of the seventh after Max Wagner (Clemson) was hit by a pitch to start the frame. With one away, Jakob Runnels (St. John’s River State College) was able to hit the ball to the deepest part of the ballpark to score Wagner. Runnels made it to third on a stand-up triple. On the ensuing at-bat, Tyler Hollow (Dixie State) hit a single to left-center field that scored Runnels to make it a one-run game.
In the bottom of the ninth, Wagner worked a one out walk and was followed by a single to right field by Kaden Hollow (Dixie State). However, with the tying-run on second base and the winning run at first, the Booyah left those men stranded to end the game.
Tyler Chadwick (West Virginia) pitched six innings and allowed just two runs while striking out five.
The Booyah and the Dock Spiders will finish their home-and-home series on Sunday afternoon at Herr-Baker Field. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 pm. Both teams will head into the All-Star Break afterwards.
The Booyah will return to Capital Credit Union Park on Monday, July 26 for a bout against the Wisconsin Woodchucks. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 pm.
