Bullfrogs Sweep Bucks
June 27, 2010
Even fourteen hits couldn’t save the Bucks. The Waterloo Bucks (13-12) lost their third straight game to the Green Bay Bullfrogs (14-10) by a score of 12-2, surrendering a three-game sweep and dropping to fifth place in the competitive South Division.
The Bullfrogs jumped all over Bucks’ starting pitcher Corey Witkowski (2-2) right away, putting up three runs in the first inning. Witkowski walked away with the loss after giving up five runs and seven hits in just three innings on the mound. Reserve pitchers Eddie Medina (1-1), Paul Twining (1-0), and Luke Putz (0-1) also got called to try to stop the high-powered Green Bay offense, but none were successful. Bullfrogs’ reserve pitcher Mike Thomas (2-0) earned the win after replacing starting pitcher Brad Schreiber (0-2) in the fifth inning. Thomas successfully suffocated the Waterloo offense by keeping the Bucks scoreless and allowing only three hits during his two innings on the mound.
Offensively, Waterloo put up fourteen hits in the game, but failed to capitalize on them, scoring only two total runs. Eight different Bucks contributed hits in the game including three hits from both CF Landon Anderson and 3B Brandon Williams, and two hits from both C Jeremy Lucas and 2B Ellis Lowe. Lowe (pictured) batted two-for-four on the day, driving in one run and one RBI for Waterloo. But the Bucks just couldn’t keep up with the Bullfrogs, who piled on fifteen hits and twelve runs as they ran away with the game and the series sweep.

After a day of much needed rest tomorrow, the Bucks will continue their road trip on Tuesday in Wisconsin Rapids against the Rafters (9-14). Game time is scheduled for 7:05 P.M. at Witter Field. Taylor Massey (2-0) will make the start for the Bucks against Wisconsin Rapids’ starting pitcher Mitch Running. The Bucks will look to stop the bleeding and pull out of their tailspin by beating the Rafters on the road.
