Streak Ends at Four

Streak Ends at Four
Waterloo’s Offense Sputters in 5-1 Loss
                The Waterloo Bucks (13-10) hit the road brimming with confidence and swagger, ready to add to their four-game winning streak in Green Bay. But the Green Bay Bullfrogs (12-10) had other plans, handing the Bucks an unwelcomed loss in game one by a score of 5-1.
                Waterloo’s offense failed to make the difference it has in the past. The Bucks ended the game with only one run and four hits. What’s more is that not a single Buck recorded multiple hits in the game. Bucks’ DH Ryan Rieger ended the game with his eleventh BI of the season, and 2B Ellis Lowe (pictured) batted in the only run for the Bucks.
                Zach Cooper (0-3) made the start at pitcher for the Waterloo Bucks tonight, but was slapped with the loss after allowing three runs and five hits in six innings on the mound. Cooper was replaced with Mitch Mormann, who allowed two runs and two hits following the game. Green Bay’s starting pitcher, Kris Edwards (3-1), got credit for the win after completing six innings and only giving up one run.
