The Madison Mallards will look to maintain first place in the Northwoods League South Division tonight as the team wraps up a two-game series against the Wisconsin Woodchucks.

The Mallards, over .500 for the first time this season, have won two straight. Last year against the Woodchucks, Madison won eight of 12 games.

Marc Lewis (pictured below), who was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 26th round yesterday, will take the mound for the Mallards tonight. In one start so far this season, Lewis pitched six shutout innings while striking out three, walking none and giving up five hits en route to a no-decision. He has a 0.00 ERA.

Currently, Madison is tied for first in the NWL South with Eau Claire, Rochester and tonight’s opponent.
