Green Bay looks to keep bats hot
by: Manny Rodriguez
ASHWAUBENON, Wis. – The Green Bay Booyah will finish their two-game series against the Madison Mallards on Sunday at Capital Credit Union Park.
The Booyah look to follow last night’s 15-run, 18-hit performance with another with the G.O.A.T.S colors on. Green Bay set the tone early on, getting out to a 4-0 lead after two innings. At one point, the Mallards were able to cut their seven-run deficit to just two. But Green Bay was able to stop their momentum with some fine pitching, which led to the Booyah bats heating up again.
Brendan Ryan (Texas A&M-Corpus Christi) was able to lead the team in hits last night, going 4-for-5 with a two-run home run to right field. The long ball in the eighth inning was his second home run of the season. He crossed the plate four times. Eight of the nine Booyah hitters picked up at least one RBI while all nine of them scored at least one run.
With the win, the Booyah were able to improve to .500 against the Mallards this season.
Mykel Page (Southern) is expected to start for the Booyah on Sunday. The right-handed pitcher is 3-1 on the season with a 1.41 earned run average.
Justin Medlin will get the nod for the Mallards. He is 3-0 on the season with a 1.96 earned run average.
First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 pm. Fans can take home a G.O.A.T.S. bobblehead, presented by Festival Foods. Families can Play Catch on the Field postgame, presented by Capital Credit Union. Capital Credit Union logoed baseballs will also be given away.
