Bullfrogs Fall to Kingfish in Series Finale
Kenosha, WI. - The host Kenosha Kingfish (11-18) trailed 2-1 before scoring four unanswered runs in the third and fourth innings to split the two-game series against the visiting Green Bay Bullfrogs (12-20) by a final score of 5-2 from Simmons Field Friday evening. Both teams were held to just two hits each in the final four innings of action.
Kenosha struck first in the opening frame on a two-out RBI double by Evan McDonald to put the Kingfish in front 1-0. The Bullfrogs then posted a two-spot in the third inning with a RBI double from Riley Mihalik (Junior, Rider Univ.) followed by the go-ahead single from Luke Robinson (Sophomore, Western Carolina) to give the Frogs a 2-1 advantage.
The Kingfish answered immediately in the bottom of the third inning after drawing four straight walks with two outs to knot the score at 2-2. In the fourth inning, a Will Wagner two-run triple broke the tie and put the hosts ahead 4-2. Kenosha added one more run on a RBI ground out to stretch the margin out to 5-2.
Blake Nelson (Junior, Univ. of Michigan) topped the Green Bay hitting charts, finishing 2-for-4 with a pair of singles. Nelson extended his hit streak out to five games, tallying 10 hits in his first eight games played this season. Mihalik went 1-for-2 with two walks and one run driven in. Cooper Morrison (Sophomore, UC Davis) was 1-for-2 with one double, one run scored and a walk.
Kenosha starting pitcher Cale Cuddie earned the win, improving to 2-1. Green Bay relief pitcher Eli Baez (Sophomore, St. Bonaventure) took the loss, falling to 0-1. After the three-run fourth inning by the Kingfish, the bullpen duo of Baez and David Toth (Freshman, Hillsdale College) held Kenosha to just two hits with a combined four strikeouts. Kenosha reliever Jack Zimmerman earned his first save of the season.
The Bullfrogs conclude their three-game road trip tomorrow night, opening up a home-and-home series with the Madison Mallards. First pitch is slated for a 6:05 p.m. start from The Duck Pond at Warner Park. Fans can tune in to the live radio broadcast on WOCO (107.1 FM) or online at WOCO.Caster.FM.
