La Crosse, Wis – The Kingfish have officially caught fire. The team defeated the Loggers by a score of 8-2 Sunday, completing a road sweep and claiming their fourth win in their last five games. Starting pitcher Rex Morrow recorded the win, handing the loss to Logger righty Scott Burke.

The key to victory was once again a big inning from the offense. With the game tied at zero apiece, Kenosha proceeded to post seven runs in the third frame. The inning saw 12 Kingfish batters enter the box as they relentlessly pummeled Burke. After C Michael Adkins and 2B Chris Godinez notched singles, two more base hits would come from 3B Alex Borglin and DH Pat Porter to score a run and subsequently load the bases. 1B Alex Dunlap, LF Zach Jones, and CF Buddy Reed would then record an RBI in consecutive at-bats. SS Kyle Brooks would later double home Jones and RF Steven Sensley to bring the score to 6-0. Brooks then came around as a result of a Logger error to put the finishing touch on the seven run inning. Despite the teams trading runs later in the game, the contest had already been decided by the Kingfish explosion.    

Kenosha pitching was once again on its game as well. Morrow put together yet another quality start, bringing his season ERA to a lowly 2.97. He struck out six while allowing just one run in five innings of work. The tandem of right-handers Dillon Mazzoccoli and Garrett McKenzie would keep the ball rolling out of the bullpen, allowing just one run in the final four frames.

Impressive performances at the plate were seen up and down the lineup for manager Duffy Dyer. Every one of the nine Kenosha batters reached base, while seven hitters scored at least once. Godinez (3-4, HR, 2 R) is on an absolute tear as of late, having recorded multi-hit games in seven of his last eight contests. His .359 average now ranks fourth in the NWL. The other middle infielder, Brooks (3-5, 2B, R) continued his recent hot streak as well. The North Florida product is now hitting .455 in the past week. Porter, notching two hits and scoring a run, put together a modest day by his standards. The Ohio State junior now leads the NWL in; RBI, runs, doubles, and slugging. He amazingly also ranks second in hits, home runs, and triples.   

King Elvis’ crew now heads home for a well-deserved off day before traveling to Michigan to take on the Battle Creek Bombers. The team’s next home date will be Thu, July 17th as the club celebrates “What If Night” presented by Snap-On. The squad currently sits in second place in the South Division, and at 9-5 now has as many victories as the first place Lakeshore Chinooks.
