WAUSAU- The Waterloo Bucks’ heavy hits weren’t enough to stop the Wisconsin Woodchucks, who have won nine of their last ten games. In a game of catch-up, the Bucks had trouble getting the last two runs on the board, as they lost to the Woodchucks Thursday night, 5-3.
Pitcher Chris Pack faced the Woodchucks for six and a half innings, giving up four runs. Reliever Tim Ryan took the mound the final duration of the game, giving up one run to the Woodchucks.
Three Bucks cranked doubles for the night, including Michael Giller, Pat Stover, and Frazier Hall. Giller, who is tied for first in the league for hits, hit a double, a single, scored one run, and batted in another. Hall brought in one run with his double, and Stover scored one run.
The Bucks return to Riverfront Stadium Friday night for a two game set against the Madison Mallards at 7:05. Friday is Baseball Card Night powered by Stratton Charters and Courier Communications; the first 750 kids receive a set of 2009 baseball cards. It’s also Wolf Realtors and KWWL Night; tickets can be picked up at their locations.
