Rafters Travel to Green Bay for Division Tilt

June 14, 2019 - Northwoods League (Northwoods) - Wisconsin Rapids Rafters News Release

Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. - After steamrolling Fond du Lac in a comeback victory Thursday, the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters (9-8) look to pull even with the Green Bay Booyah (10-7) in the Great Lakes West Division standings Friday.

Despite trailing 3-0 in the sixth inning, the Rafters posted six runs in the bottom of that frame and never relinquished the lead on their way to a 12-3 triumph. New Rafter Davion Downey went 2-for-4 with three RBIs in his debut.

Wisconsin Rapids, which boasts the no. 2 pitching staff in the league, will start Gareth Stroh tonight. The lefty gave up one hit over four innings in his lone start this season. Chris Jefferson, a New Mexico State product with a 1-0 record, will get the start for Green Bay.

Wisconsin Rapids returns home Saturday for a 6:05 game against the Booyah for a Lebakkens Father's Day tool set giveaway, along with a postgame pint glass giveaway presented by Awards N More and Kari Van Ert of State Farm.
