Kenosha, WI. – The Kenosha Kingfish shutout the Kalamazoo Growlers on Monday afternoon’s Opening Day matchup.

Kenosha scored their first run in their half of the first inning due to errors made by Kalamazoo’s defense.

Kalamazoo had minimal opportunities to score, thanks to the dominance exhibited by Kenosha’s pitching staff. Ross Thompson, the Kingfish starter, put up 9 strikeouts through 5 innings of work. In total Kenosha’s pitchers struck out a total of 16 batters.

Tucker Zdunich gave Kenosha a 2-0 in the 6th inning with his solo home run that went to right field.
