Box Score

The Bucks lost to the Huskies in a one-sided affair, losing by a final score of 3-16. This is the fourth loss in five games for the Bucks with the Bucks giving up double digit runs in all those losses. The Huskies owned the game from start to finish, teeing off on the Bucks pitchers for 20 hits and scoring in all but two innings.  The Bucks offense was absent most of the game also, with only five hits on the day.

Jake Powers started his first game for the Bucks this season after leading the team in innings pitched last season and posting a 3.79 ERA, but was unable to contain the best offense in the league. Michael Suiter started off the game with a two-run homer in the top of the 1st inning. Suiter tore the Bucks up today, adding a three-run homer in the top of the 4th, finishing the game 3 for 4 with six RBIs and one walk.

The Bucks didn’t get on the board until the bottom of the 5th when Nico Zych singled to score Davis Hendrickson after Hendrickson tripled to lead off the inning. The only other runs scored by the Bucks were on a two-run homer by Jordan Adams in the 8th inning, the first homer hit by the Bucks at home this season.

The Bucks could not contain the Huskies offense at all today. Powers went four innings, giving up seven earned runs on six hits and five walks. Gunner Johnson followed Powers but only got one inning where he gave up three earned runs on three hits. Brett Andrzejewski made his first appearance of the season next but it was a rough one, as he went one inning and gave up three earned on five hits. Chris Dunn and Jordan Milbrath had the most success of any Bucks pitchers, each giving up one run in one and two innings, respectively.

The Bucks remain just a game back for the division lead but are now tied for second place with these Duluth Huskies.
