Kenosha, Wis. – After going 3-1 on their road trip, the Kenosha Kingfish (26-14) host the La Crosse Loggers (21-17) at 6:05 p.m. at Simmons Field tonight.
The Kingfish came out on the wrong end of a slugfest last night in La Crosse, falling 13-10. Eric Filia had three hits and one RBI and newcomer Grayson Byrd launched a double and home run for the Kingfish. In the end, the Loggers bats were too much, pounding out 17 hits against Kingfish pitching. Kenosha’s Shea Murray took the loss and Jordan Jess picked up the win for the Loggers.
Starting tonight on the mound for the Kingfish is Trevor Haas. The right-hander from Valparaiso is 1-1 in eight games with a 6.75 ERA this season. In 17.1 innings of work, the junior has struck out seven batters and only walked five. Haas specializes as a long reliever for the Kingfish but will make a spot start today.
Kyle Nelson opposes Haas for the Loggers today. Nelson is 2-0 with a 1.08 ERA in four games this year. The freshman from UC- Santa Barbara started against the Kingfish on June 23, throwing five innings of three hit ball and fanning five to earn the victory.
