Kingfish host St. Cloud Rox Wednesday, May 27th at 6:35 p.m.
Kenosha, Wis. – The Kenosha Kingfish host the St. Cloud Rox for the second game of the opening two game home stand at the historic Simmons Field on Wednesday, May 27th, with the first pitch at 6:35 p.m.
The Kingfish will hand the ball to Josh Serio tonight. Serio plays his college ball locally at UW-Parkside and is a tremendous addition to the Kingfish pitching staff this season. The Greenfield, Wisconsin native looks to lead the Kingfish to their first victory of the season.
Andrew Sykes will get the start on the mound for the Rox. The 6’2”, 195-pound left-handed pitcher played his freshman year of baseball at Heartland Community College. Sykes will try to help the Rox improve to 2-0 on the year.
The Kingfish fell to the Rox 13-4 on Opening Night last night. Paul Schuster pitched five strong innings for the Kingfish, striking out five and only allowing one walk. Outfielder Nick Sergakis (2-4, 3RBIs) and catcher Jason Scholl (2-3 with a double) led the offense on the night. An enthusiastic crowd of 2,433 was in attendance to cheer on the Kingfish for the first game of the season.
