On the hill for the Rockers in Wednesday night’s game is Logan Lee (Middle Georgia State). Lee will be making his second start of the season. His first start was also against the Dock Spiders.
In addition to Matthews and Jackson, Kendal Ewell (Illinois-Chicago) is also swinging the bat well for Green Bay. He’s currently on a nine-game hit streak and has two multi-hit games over his last three starts.
