Growlers Shut Down Kingfish 4-0
Kenosha, Wis. – The Kingfish (16-23) were blanked at home by the Growlers by a score of 4-0. An exceptional pitching performance by Kalamazoo’s Trey Ganns held the Kingfish scoreless in game 1 of the 2-game series.
In defeat, the Kingfish saw a strong start from Andrew Reisinger (1-3). After a shaky first inning, Reisinger settled down and gave the Kingfish six innings in which he allowed just 3 runs.
Bobby Skogsbergh was the lone reliever, and allowed one run over the course of the final 3 innings. Skogsbergh was imposing his will on the Growlers, as 6 of the 9 outs he recorded came via strikeouts.
Rob Henry went 2 for 3 at the plate for the Kingfish, and Gunnar McNeill went 2 for 4. McNeill and Henry were the only hitters in the lineup to notch multiple base hits. Kalamazoo did not surrender a single extra base hit on the evening, and stranded 9 Kingfish on base.
The Kingfish will host the Growlers tomorrow night at 6:05 CT. On Sunday and Monday, the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters will come to town for the first time this season.
