Madison, Wis. – The Madison Mallards look to move to 4-3 tonight against the Kenosha Kingfish (4-2) at Simmons Field in Kenosha. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 pm.
The Mallards lost last night versus the Wisconsin Woodchucks, falling 3-5. Starting Mallards pitcher Rob McDonnell (Illinois) was steady on the mound but received the loss, giving up two runs on three hits and striking out six while walking two. Woodchuck pitcher Logan Sawyer (Lincoln Memorial CC) received the win, going five innings and giving up two runs on seven hits, striking out three Mallards.
The Woodchucks had a big fifth inning, scoring three runs on one hit to go up 5-2. Brian Rodemoyer (Illinois State) went deep in the sixth to make the score 5-3, but that was all the Mallards could muster.
On the bump tonight for the Mallards is 6’2”, 190-pound righty Christian Taugner (Brown). The hurler out of Roselle, Illinois is 1-0 on the year and dazzled in his last outing with the club, shutting out the Kalamazoo Growers in five innings of work, only giving up one hit and one walk. The Mallards went on to win the game 6-2.
The Mallards stay in Kenosha tomorrow to wrap up their four game road trip. First pitch is slated for 7:05 pm. They return to the “Duck Pond” on Wednesday, June 4th at 7:05 pm. That night is MINI of Madison Yoga Night featuring former WWE superstar Diamond Dallas Page.
