Fish Drop Rain Soaked Game to Bullfrogs
GREEN BAY, Wis. – Looking to end their first losing skid of the season, the Kenosha Kingfish (3-3) were delayed twice en route to a 4-2 loss at the hands of the Green Bay Bullfrogs (3-4).
Keanu Mendez (Concordia) got his first start with the Kingfish but only lasted 2.2 innings thanks to an hour and a half long delay due to rain and lightning in the area. The delay was already the second as there was a shorter 15-minute rain delay during the top of the second inning.
Connor Doyle (San Diego) started out the game with a run for the Kingfish, taking a lead-off walk. After advancing to second on an error by the pitcher and to third on a groundout, Doyle scored on a wild pitch by Bullfrog starter Will Shirah.
Doyle also scored in the third inning for Kenosha, reaching on another base on balls. After a stolen base, Doyle once again scored on a wild pitch.
Jon Ostroff (George Mason) took the loss for the Kingfish but pitched 4.1 good innings out of the bullpen when he took over for Mendez after the weather delay. Ostroff only allowed two runs on two hits with a strikeout. Max Rimac (Cisco College) also was on the bump for Kenosha, pitching an inning out of the pen after Ostroff. It was Rimac’s second appearance and he allowed no runs in one inning of work.
Tuesday evening, the Kingfish wrap up their road trip with a final game in Green Bay at Joannes Stadium. The game will be at 6:35 pm CT with probable starter Colton Johnson (Illinois State) taking the mound.
