Chucks Win 12th Matchup over Green Bay Friday Night, 8-3

ASHWAUBENON, WI – The Wisconsin Woodchucks met the Green Bay Booyah 12 times in 2021. Against their foes located roughly 100 miles from Wausau on US-29, the Chucks prevailed in each contest.

In a microcosm of the one-sided season series, the Woodchucks bounced on the Booyah early and rode a late-game scoring flurry to a 8-3 win at Capital Credit Union park Friday night.

Harrison Long homered to left in the seventh before Ryan Sepede drove in Clayton Mehlbauer and Jacob Schoenvogel in the eighth to put the matchup virtually out of reach.

Wisconsin moved to 36-21 overall and 15-7 in the second half of the 2021 season.

The Woodchucks added a pair of runs in the first. Anthony Catalano drove in Long before Stephen Reid reached home on a double steal. That lead was doubled in the fourth with a third inning Reid home run over the right field wall.

The Booyah got a run back in the bottom of the third before the Chucks made it 5-1 in the fourth off the bat of Sepede.

Green Bay got within 5-3 with a two-run homer in the bottom of the fourth, but were scoreless the rest of the game as the Chucks finished the evening with three unanswered runs.

Top Performers

Starting pitcher Tyler Hoeft threw six innings, with five strikeouts and three runs allowed. He earned his sixth win of the season, which at least ties a Northwoods League-high in 2021.

Peyton Schofield claimed a three-inning save, allowing no runs and striking out five.

Long was 3-5 with a home run, double and three runs.

Reid was 2-4 with a two-run homer.

Sepede went 2-5 with two RBI.
