Kenosha and Rockford are even in the season series.

 

Loves Park, Ill– The Kenosha Kingfish (10-8) fell to the Rockford Rivets (7-9) 9-2 at Rivets Stadium on Friday, July 23rd.

In the fifth inning, Rockford added one more on a Brody Harding sacrifice fly to score Matulia and increase the lead to 6-0.

 

In the seventh inning, Kenosha got their first run of the game courtesy of a Mitch Jebb (Michigan State) RBI double that scored Luke Stephenson (Elon) to cut the deficit down to 6-1. Rockford responded with three of their own in the bottom half of the seventh to claim a 9-1 lead. The Kingfish scored one more run in the eighth on a Chase Estep (Kentucky) double that scored Kirk Liebert (Kentucky) to cut the deficit back down to 9-2. However, that score held and Rockford salvaged the split.
