Woodchucks fall in tight game against Green Bay, 4-3

WAUSAU, WI – The Woodchucks were beaten in a close game against the Green Bay Booyah on Wednesday night, 4-3. The Chucks rallied to score two runs in the ninth inning, but were unable to overtake the Booyah.

That’s all the Chucks would get until the ninth inning, which they entered trailing 4-1. Adam Frank scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning with a single, but the Chucks would still fall 4-3.

Matt Taylor went four innings in his start for the Woodchucks, and didn’t allow a run. He only let up three hits, and struck out six. Dathon McGrath entered after Taylor, and was given the loss. He allowed two runs over two innings, surrendering four hits. JD Shultz tossed a scoreless inning, and Jace Baumann was tagged for two runs over two innings.
