June19_PostgameGreen Bay, WI – June 19, 2016. After last night's elation in their first walk-off win of the season, the Madison Mallards (13-7) had a sobering experience in their first trip to Joannes Stadium.  They fell behind early and weren't able to overcome a nine-run deficit as they lost by a final score of 9-2 on Sunday to the Green Bay Bullfrogs (7-13).

With the game tied at zero after the first two innings, the Bullfrogs played solid small ball to grab a three-run lead after three innings.

The Mallards struggled to find offense, as they were able to get base runners, but were not able to get a timely hit to plate their first run of the game.

Chase Hoag (Fresno State) came on in relief for the Mallards, and allowed two hits over two innings of work.

Logan Sherer (UNC-Charlotte) also had an inning out of the bullpen, and allowed just one hit while working both corners of the plate with his fastball.

The Mallards were able to score in the ninth inning, as Nate Palace (Valparaiso) led the inning off with a single and later came around to score thanks to an error by the Bullfrogs defense. Joe Stefanki (San Jose State) also reached on an error, and later scored on a RBI single from Nico Hoerner (Stanford) to cut the deficit to 9-2, which would remain as the final score.

The Mallards will return to the Duck Pond on Tuesday, June 21st on Alliant Energy's  STEM Night with a science fair. Make Music Madison Night will also be on Tuesday, with live in-stadium boomwhackers with performance by Sunspot. Prior to the game, UW Health Sports Medicine will be providing a healthy off-speed pitching mechanics baseball clinic from 9 am to 12 pm. Cost is $40 for kids ages 8-16.
