Kenosha, Wis. – The Kingfish began their final regular season home series this evening against the Battle Creek Bombers. They came into the series a half game back of the Wisconsin Woodchucks and the final South Division playoff berth. The Kingfish continued their recent hot play with a statement 10-3 victory.

The Kingfish fell behind in the second 1-0 but were not phased in the slightest. They came back swinging and tied things up in the bottom of the second before blowing things open in the third. The third started with Chris Godinez reaching first on a hit by pitch, a familiar feeling for the second baseman. He has now been hit 25 times this season, the highest mark in the NWL. A single from Buddy Reed and a walk to Pat Porter then loaded the bases with no outs. Next was Zach Ratcliff, who was issued another free pass from Bomber pitching to drive in a run. Alex Dunlap followed Ratcliff by slapping a two-RBI single to the outfield to bring the Kenosha lead to 4-1.

The Kingfish offense put up another big inning in the eighth when Buddy Reed brought in two on a triple to right. After he came around to score on a wild pitch, the damage was at 10-3.  All told King Elvis’ crew scored in five of their eight frames at-bat and saw different players score. Notable performances were seen up and down the line up, thought a few stood out in particular. RF Buddy Reed (2-5, 3B, 2 R, 2 RBI), SS Zack Kolakowski (2-3, 3 R), and DH Alex Dunlap (2-4, 2 RBI, R) all did their part to make the offense click. LF Pat Porter (1-3, 2 RBI, R) increased his hit streak to eight while adding to his NWL-leading RBI total of 62. He is now tied for 5th all time for RBI in a season in NWL history with one game yet remaining.

Starter Trevor Haas ended his season with a career best performance. Haas went for seven innings while striking out seven Battle Creek batters. The right-hander yielded just one run on his way to earning his fourth win of the year.

The Woodchucks also won their game tonight, maintaining their half-game lead on the Kingfish.  Tomorrow marks the last day of the regular season for both teams as a final push for the playoffs is made. If Kenosha wins and Wisconsin loses, the Kingfish will earn their way into the postseason. Any other combination of results will usher the Woodchucks to the playoffs
