Rivets Finish Road Trip with 8-2 loss to the Rafters

July 12, 2018 - Northwoods League (Northwoods) - Rockford Rivets News Release

Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. - The Rockford Rivets (19-23) fell to the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters in the final game of the Rivets' four game road trip on Wednesday night at Witter Field.

For the third straight night, the pitching started well, and the bats struggled throughout for the Rivets. Alex Bacevicius was through the first three innings scoreless, before an outburst of runs for the Rafters made it 4-0 and ended Bacevicius's day.

The runs for the Rivets were scored by Ryan Cole and Parker Bates, on a bases loaded walk, and a wild pitch, respectively. Rockford left a total of eight Rivets on base.

"We had runners in scoring position tonight, and we didn't come through," Rivets' Manager Brian Smith said, "Nobody came through in clutch situations. We get a hit in a clutch situation and we break the thing open, and get some momentum going into the next inning."

The Rivets finish the four-game road trip winless. They return to Rivets Stadium tomorrow for a game against the Wisconsin Woodchucks. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 PM.
