FOND DU LAC, WI -The Dock Spiders hit the road in search of their third straight win on Tuesday night as they took on the Kenosha Kingfish. The Dock Spiders scored first as a fielder choice from Paul Smith (Rice) allowed Jack Gorman (Presbyterian) to score which gave the Dock Spiders an early lead. The Kingfish answered the bell as they scored one run in the bottom of the first and then another one in the bottom of the second off an RBI single from Matt Wolfe in the first, (Vanderbilt) and then a wild pitch from Dock Spiders starter Jacob Young (Fairmont State) scored Mason Morris (Ole Miss). Young settled in and tossed five innings of three run ball but surrendered three runs. The Dock Spiders registered two hits all night as Kingfish starter Cole Tolbert (Ole Miss) hurled five innings of one hit ball.
