Bucks Crush Huskies, Win Streak Now Seven Games
The Bucks sent the Huskies running with their tails between their legs on Friday, taking the first game of the series against Duluth.
A first inning single off the bat of David Kerrian scored Pat Mackenzie, and that was all of the scoring the Bucks needed. They would tally eight more runs between the fifth and seventh innings, though.
Adam Bray was lights out for Waterloo, allowing no runs and just four hits over six innings. He struck out four and earned his third victory of the season. TJ Peterson came in to relieve Bray and allowed two hits over three innings of work and earned an effective save.
Alex Winkelman took the loss for Duluth after giving up four runs (three earned). This is Winkelman's second straight loss against the Bucks. His last appearance came June 14, where he was the losing pitcher in a 4-3 final.
With the victory, the Bucks extend their win streak to seven games, their longest of the season. Landon Simpson takes the hill for the Bucks at 7:05 Saturday night against Duluth to wrap up the two game series.
