Bucks Win Home Finale, Move Closer To Playoffs

Will Sparks made a full on, highlight reel diving catch in the sixth inning, highlighting the Bucks 6-3 victory over the struggling Border Cats of Thunder Bay.

After putting themselves in another early hole, the Bucks were able to shore up their mistakes and crawl back into the game. This has become a trend in recent games, though the Bucks continue to win games. In this case, the Bucks fell down by two runs early. It didn't take long for the Bucks to reclaim the lead, though, and hold on and secure the victory. 

The winning pitcher in tonight's contest was Nick Veale, who improved his record to 4-1 for the season. Taking the loss for Thunder Bay was Yuji Suzuki, who is now 2-5 on the year. 

The first place Bucks continue to inch closer to the playoffs, currently a game and a half ahead of Eau Claire in the standings. The Bucks travel to Alexandria for two games against the last place Anchors, before taking on Willmar in the final series of the regular season.
