Haas/Morrow: Duo For Doubleheader
Kenosha, Wis. – After tonight’s doubleheader, the Kenosha Kingfish will have played eight games in six days, epitomizing the phrase “No rest for the weary”.

The Kingfish start the night at 5:05 p.m. with two seven inning game and the chance to pull above .500. Starting pitchers Trevor Haas and Rex Morrow will be looking for the wins.
Trevor Haas has been emerging as a top-quality pitcher for Duffy Dyer’s team. In his last ten innings pitched, Haas has only given up two runs and has a 3.46 ERA on the year. Rex Morrow will come in to start the second game with his 3.93 ERA. He has not given up any home runs on the season, which will bode well for the Kingfish as they fell victim to a grand slam in both of yesterday’s games.
