Kenosha, Wi – Yesterday the Kingfish showed Kenosha the way baseball is meant to be played, practically perfect. The team was on point in all areas and beat the Battle Creek Bombers 8-3. Tonight’s game ends the six game home stand and the Kingfish look to leave Kenosha with a three game win streak.
The Kingfish had 13 hits on the day. The Bombers were kept quiet thanks to Dillon Mazzoccoli and Garrett McKenzie. Mazzoccoli started the night off strong, striking out four of the first six batters and McKenzie got the win.
The bats were loud for Duffy Dyer’s team as Kyle Brooks (3-4, 3 H, 2 R) and Pat Porter (3-5, 1 R, 2 RBI) got on base early in the lineup with no outs. Porter now leads the Northwood’s League with 26 RBI.
Just as impressive were the two top-ten play worthy defensive catches from Porter and Buddy Read in the end of the sixth and seventh inning.
Looking to continue the perfection is pitcher Steven Klimek. The lefty from Rochester New York has 12 strikeouts in 11 innings pitched and has a 2.38 ERA.
The Kingfish travel to Kalamazoo Michigan to face the Growlers and then to Battle Creek to take on the Bombers once again. They return to historic Simmons Field on Saturday, June 28th and will have special guest Ozzie Guillen in attendance.
