Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. – Following a 4-1 loss to the Lakeshore Chinooks (12-17), the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters (14-16) head to Kapco Park aiming for a split of the home and home series. Lakeshore struck first last night off an RBI single from Christian Boulware. The Rafters would score their sole run in the fifth as Mike Rojas (Auburn) led off the inning with a homer to left. Lakeshore took the lead in the eighth scoring twice from an RBI sacrifice fly and a Rafters error. One more Chinooks run came home in the ninth on an RBI groundout.
