Williams allowed five runs and six hits in a little over an inning on the mound for the Bucks before handing the reins to Matt Grabowski. Grabowski finished out the game by striking out one batter and holding the Mallards to zero hits or runs during his time as pitcher. Mallards’ starter Ryan Torgerson (2-0) got credit for tonight’s win, and Madison’s closer, Kyle Stewart, was credited with the save.
