Green Bay looks to extend its win streak to three games against the Wausau Woodchucks.
Wausau, Wis.- Green Bay will hit the road for the fourth time in five days to take on the Wausau Woodchucks. It will be the Rockers’ first visit to Athletic Park this season where the game will begin at 6:35 p.m.
On Monday night, the Rockers won their second straight game when they beat the Woodchucks 8-2. Green Bay’s first win of the year in this season’s series with Wausau was a team victory, as they were able to put together six consecutive innings with a run scored. Shortstop Cooper Kelly (Kansas) hit his first home run of the year in the second inning.
Drawing the start on the mound was Jackson Murphy (Roanoke). He earned the win for the game, pitching five innings and only allowing one run. Relief pitcher Jacob Faulkner (Princeton) struck out six batters in his three innings of work.
