WAUSAU, WI – After accumulating 17 hits and 13 runs last night in Madison, the Woodchucks bats fell short of beating the Mallards today in Wausau. The Woodchucks lost by a close score of 6-5.


The game started slow for both teams. The Mallards scored first on an RBI single from Drew Benefield. The Woodchucks first score came in the second inning. Byron Murray reached base after being hit by a pitch. Murray then advanced to third after Angel Tiburcio hit a single to center field. Murray later scored from third on a fielder’s choice after Kaeber Rog grounded out. The score was then even at 1-1.


The Mallards added two more runs in the fourth inning to give them a 3-1 lead. The Woodchucks inched closer in the sixth inning when TJ Reeves hit a single to center field that scored Brandon Seltzer from third. This made the score 3-2.


The Mallards had a power surge in the eighth inning. They hit two home runs that brought home three runs. This extended the Mallards lead to 6-2.


The Woodchucks faced their final chance to comeback in the bottom of the ninth inning. With the Chucks down by four runs, Angel Tiburcio stepped to the plate with two men on base. He then launched a three-run home run over the left center wall. This made the Woodchucks ninth inning rally come alive.


The Chucks were not able to drive in another man after Tiburcio’s home run, leading to a final score of 6-5 with the Mallards leaving Wausau victorious.


The two teams will face each other again on Friday, July 5th when the Mallards travel back to Athletic Park.
