The Lakeshore Chinooks (6-7) looked to bounce back in the final game of their road trip, but were unable to overcome the Madison Mallards (5-6), falling 5-4 at Warner Park on Saturday night. With the loss, Lakeshore is now 3-6 on the road this season.  

Madison scored early, striking first in the bottom of the second. Korbyn Dickerson drew a one-out walk to put a runner on the basepaths for the Mallards. Owen Jackson then hit a double all the way to the warning track in center field that would allow Dickerson to score, putting Madison on top 1-0.

Lakeshore committed two costly errors in the bottom of the following inning. To start things off for Madison, Jackson Chatterton drew a one-out walk and advanced to second on a balk by Mitch Alba. With two outs, Drew Townsend bobbled a flyball in deep center field that caused another run to score, giving the Mallards a 2-0 lead.

Gabe Roessler, who made his debut for Lakeshore, then fielded a ground ball and attempted to tag out the runner heading to third but was unable to. He instead tried to throw out Korbyn Dickerson at first, but was too late, letting another run cross the plate for Madison. 

Jake Goolsby then hit an RBI single to put the Mallards ahead 4-0. Alba was then taken out and Liam Stumpf got out of a bases-loaded jam, but the Chinooks had their work cut out for them heading into the fourth inning. 

11 straight Chinook batters were retired before Lakeshore got on the board in the eighth inning. Cootway got on first after being hit by a pitch. Taeg Gollert then hit a single to left field that led to a throwing error, allowing Cootway to score. 

Roessler then hit a single to center field that scored Gollert from second base. The runs kept coming for Lakeshore as Cody Kelly grounded out to the right side, which plated another run, tacking on another run for the Chinooks. Andy Nelson came up to the plate and doubled down the left field line to tie the game up 4-4. 

Neither team was able to score until the bottom of the ninth. Connor Krauseneck (L, 0-1), Lakeshore’s reliever, came in and hit two batters to put runners on first and second. Keenan Taylor then hit a grounder up the middle past the glove of Roessler to score a run and walk it off for the Mallards. 

Gollert and Roessler both went 2-for-5 on the day with each earning one RBI. 

Stumpf and James Reese, two of Lakeshore’s relievers, pitched a combined 5.1 innings, giving up seven hits and zero earned runs while striking out six batters.

The Chinooks will head back to Mequon tomorrow to face the Mallards once again at Moonlight Graham Field. First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. CST.
