Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. - The Rafters fell to the Kenosha Kingfish last night, dropping them to 14-18 on the season.

In 2018, the Rafters lead the Kingfish 3-2 in the season series.
Despite the Rafters' tough loss, Jack-Thomas Wold (UNLV) went 3-for-4 with five RBI and a run scored. Two of his hits were doubles. Wold now leads the Rafters in doubles (11), hits (38) and tied in RBI (24).
On the mound for his Rafters debut is Tyler Giovinco (Army West Point). The lefthanded junior had an impressive 2018 spring season. At Army West Point, he had a 9-5 record and a 3.25 ERA. Starting in 15 games and pitching 94 innings he struck out 77 batters.
