Green Bay hosts the Mallards for the fourth time this season after losing series opener.
Ashwaubenon, WI. – The Rockers are set to host the second game of the four-game homestand at Capital Credit Union Parks as the Mallards come back to town. First pitch for Friday night’s game is set for 6:35 p.m.
In Thursday night’s game, the Rockers dropped the close game to Madison 4-3. The game would be controlled by each side’s starting pitcher throughout the first five innings where only one run would score. Green Bay’s starter Christian Foutch (Arkansas) would strike out a season-high nine batters.
The game came to a close on a go-ahead hit from Mallard outfielder Nick Williams (Michigan State) in the top of the ninth inning. The base knock came on the first pitch after play resumed following a one-hour rain delay.
With the loss, the Rockers are now 10-11 in the second half and sit three and a half games out of first place. The team’s overall record remains above .500 at 29-26.
This will be the tenth meeting of the season series between Green Bay and Madison. With last night’s win, the Mallards took a 5-4 advantage in the series with three games left.
On the hill for the Rockers in Friday night’s game will be Maddox Long (Harding). In his last appearance against Madison, the right-handed pitcher threw six innings, allowing just two hits and striking out four batters.
