FOND DU LAC, WI - The Dock Spiders dropped their Eighth straight game to the Rockers on Thursday night at Capital Credit Union Park. Both teams traded off scoreless innings early on until the top of the fourth inning when Parker Knoll (Lawrence) launched his second home run of the season which gave the Dock Spiders a 1-0 lead. The Rockers tied the game in the bottom of the inning as Andrew Harris (Wisconsin-Parkside) laced an RBI single which scored Jayson Jones (Arkansas). The Dock Spiders tallied two more runs in the top of the fifth, capped off by an RBI single from Bradley Comer (UW-Stevens Point) for his first hit as a Dock Spider. However, the Rockers put up two more runs in the bottom of the inning as a walk with the bases loaded issued to Jayson Jones that scored Kendall Ewell (Kentucky) and Mateo Matthews (Wagner) being plunked, scored JoJo Jackson (Georgia State) which gave the Rockers a 4-3 lead. In the bottom of the seventh, Andrew Harris (Wisconsin-Parkside) cranked a two-run home run which broke the tie and gave the Rockers a 6-3 lead. The Dock Spiders notched one run in the top of the eighth as an error by Rockers Max Mims (Southwestern) scored Jake Surane (Wisconsin-Oshkosh) but that was all the Dock Spiders offense produced down the stretch, as the Rockers took the 6-4 victory.
