Mallards blow lead in the ninth, lose wild extra-inning contest to Bucks
This was a game the Mallards should soon forget. Bubba O’Donnell blew his first save of the year and the team committed a season-high six errors in a 3-2 13-inning loss to the Waterloo Bucks at Riverfront Stadium Sunday afternoon. Mallards starting pitcher Justin Bristow provided seven strong innings, only allowing one unearned run, and first baseman Neil Medchill and center fielder Russell Harben drove in the team’s lone runs. The same two teams will square off Monday at 7:05 p.m. All action can be heard on Madison’s Sports Radio 100.5 FM.
