Madison, Wis. – The Madison Mallards (7-3) will play the Green Bay Bullfrogs (7-3) tonight at the “Duck Pond.” First pitch is slated for 7:05 pm. 

The Mallards come into the series on a four game win streak after finishing a sweep of the Kenosha Kingfish in a home-and-home series last night. Leading the Mallards to a 13-4 victory was left fielder Logan Regnier (Central Michigan) and pitcher Tom Constand (Western Illinois).  Regnier was 4-for-4 with two doubles, two singles and crossed home plate three times while driving in one run. Constand was steady on the mound in 5.1 innings pitched, giving up one run on five hits and striking out four Kenosha batters.

Tonight, Mallards pitcher Chris Oakley (North Carolina) will square off against the Bullfrogs. The 6’7”, 235-pound righty is 0-1 in two appearances this year with a 3.17 ERA in a combined 5.2 innings pitched. He received a loss last Saturday against the Wisconsin Woodchucks, giving up two runs on five hits in a 0-6 defeat. Oakley will face right-handed Bullfrog pitcher Ryan McCourt (Coffeyville Community College). McCourt is 1-0 on the year after pitching 5.1 innings against the La Crosse Loggers on May 31st, giving up no runs on five hits and striking out three. 

Tonight’s game at the “Duck Pond” will feature in-game entertainment by The Russian Bar Trio presented by Charter Communications.

The Mallards wrap up a four game home stand tomorrow versus the Bullfrogs at the “Duck Pond.” Tomorrow night is the Luedkte-Storm Mackey 10 year Anniversary of the 2004 Championship Team Celebration with a Mallards Tumbler Giveaway.
