Madison, WI- On Tuesday night, the best players of the Northwoods League hit the field in front of scouts and fans alike to showcase their talents. Four members of the Bucks represented Waterloo on the North team. Sean Borman and Austin Barrett each started the game at third base and catcher, respectively, and Kevin Kaczmarski would come in later in the game in left field. The fourth Buck was Jordan Foley, who made an appearance in the 5th inning. In the end, the South took down the North by a score of 4-3.

Borman was the lone Buck with a hit tonight, going one for two with a double. Barrett and Kaczmarski were each hitless in their two plate appearances with Kaczmarski drawing a walk in one of them. Foley came in the 5th inning and went two-thirds of an inning, striking out one and giving up no hits or runs.

The game was a pitcher’s duel for the most part, featuring 12 pitchers from the North side and the 11 pitchers from the South side. The North started the scoring in the top of the 4th inning when Willmar’s Michael Suchy scored on a wild pitch by Eau Claire’s Andrew Hedrick. Sean Borman helped keep this inning alive with a two out double that set-up Suchy on third base. Austin Barrett was able to stay alive after falling down 0-2, forcing Hedrick to throw extra pitches, including the wild one that allowed a run to score.

The North added a second run in the 5th to go up 2-0 when James Ramsay of Duluth hit a single to score St. Cloud’s Andy Henkemeyer.

The South would fight back and score one in the bottom of the 5th off an RBI single by Brendon Hayden of Wisconsin. In the 6th, the South added two more runs with back-to-back solo home runs by Eau Claire’s Alex Real and Ty Forney.

Down 3-2 going into the 7th, the North would tie things up. Paul Karmeris of Duluth hit a leadoff double and Alexandria’s Jimmy Pickens scored him on a grounder.

The South would take the lead right back in the 8th inning when Madison’s own Tyler Marincov hit the third solo home run of the game for the South. This ended up being all the South needed as the North were unable to reach base at all in the 9th.

Alex Tuckey of Battle Creek was credited with the win and Seth Fuller of Wisconsin Rapids earned the save for the South. Mankato’s Patrick Goelz took the loss for the North.

The Bucks will start up action again on Thursday as they are visiting the Rochester Honkers with first pitch set for 7:05 pm. Remember to check out for all your latest Bucks information.
