Kingfish Swept by Chinooks in Doubleheader

Kenosha, Wis. – In the first double header of the season for Kenosha, the Kingfish fell to the Lakeshore Chinooks both in the morning and evening.

The morning game was played in Mequon and saw an offensive showdown. The Kingfish got out to a 6-0 lead, and the offense was in full swing. The lead would not stand, however, as Lakeshore roared back with 10 runs, including a 3-run home run and a grand slam. The score ended 10-8 in favor of the Chinooks.

Charlie Hecht worked 5.2 IP and surrendered 6 ER off of 6 hits. He was relieved by Ty Harris, who struggled on the mound. Harris was only able to record one out, but allowed 4 runs off of a grand slam. Bobby Skogsbergh made his Northwoods League debut and finished the final two innings off without allowing a run.

The Kingfish offense was excellent, picking up 12 hits and 8 runs. Marty Bechina had the standout performance going 4 for 5. Pat McInerney and Gunnar McNeill each picked up a pair of hits, and helped pace the Kingfish lineup.

In game two, back at Simmons Field, the Kingfish were shut out 5-0. Lakeshore scored early in the second inning, and never looked back. Andrew Reisinger took the mound, lasted 4.1 innings, and surrendered 4 runs, 2 of which were earned. Additionally, he walked 3 and struck out 4. Rigo Beltran and Adam Dressler combined for 4.2 innings of relief, and only gave up one run between them.

Marty Bechina was in the offensive spotlight again with a 2 for 4 day at the plate. Pete Schuler also went 2 for 4 on the evening, with the other three hits scattered between Pat McInerney, Micah Coffey, and JD Hearn.

The Kingfish take on the Rockford Rivets tomorrow at home for a 7:05 pm first pitch. After that, the Kingfish are on the road in Rockford on Wednesday, and at Lakeshore on Thursday and Friday.
