Uncontested Victory for the Chucks over Rockers 10-3

Wausau, Wisc. – The Wausau Woodchucks have won six straight games in a row after sweeping the Green Bay Rockers with a commanding final score of 10-3. 


The Chucks had a dominating first two innings, launching themselves to an eight run lead over the Rockers that would go uncontested for the remainder of the night. Brent Widder (Evansville) gave the Chucks their first base runner of the game and was soon driven in by Hunter Dorraugh (San Jose State). Later that inning, Zach Levenson (Miami) belted a double to deep center field to score two with newcomer Chase Hug (Evansville) scoring Ryan Sepede (BYU).


The 2nd inning was just as eventful as the first for the Woodchucks as they scored 4 more runs off a barrage of hits and walks after the Rockers brought in their first relief pitcher of the game. Dorraugh and Levenson led the charge with two more hits to drive in runs. By the end of the second, the Chucks were up 8-2.


The Woodchucks were able to tack on two more runs, one coming in the third and the other in the fifth. The Rockers would try to get something going with a run in the 6th inning, but their efforts would prove unsuccessful, as that would be their last run of the game. Jace Baumann (University of Wisconsin-Stout), Matt Milnar (Southwestern Oklahoma State) , and Korey Bunselmeyer (Illinois) had three flawless 3 up 3 down innings to end the game with a final score of 10-3.
