Woodchucks Blow Chinooks out of the Water

August 8, 2022 - Northwoods League (Northwoods) - Wausau Woodchucks News Release

Wausau, Wisc. - The Wausau Woodchucks (35-31) took the weather induced double header against the Lakeshore Chinooks (33-33) winning both games on Monday evening. The first game started in the 5th inning with a tie ball game, each team with one run, and played through nine innings, with the Woodchucks taking the game with a score of 4-3. The second game was seven innings, which resulted in a 3-1 victory for the Chucks.

With Wausau as the visiting team in the first game, they struck early in the top of the 5th inning with an RBI single by Maurice Gomez (Keiser University) to score Dwight Allen (Georgia) from third. Gomez would provide another RBI in the top of the 7th inning, driving Jc Ng (Pomona-Pitzer) around from third, giving the Chucks a 3-2 lead. Chase Hug (Evansville) would give the Woodchucks the final push they needed to take the game plating their fourth run in Jakob Boos (UWSP).

The second game was lightning fast, lasting just under two hours. Lakeshore struck first, plating one run in the top of the 4th inning. Wausau sought revenge in the bottom of the 5th, when Bradley Comer (UWSP) and Gomez each walked, setting the scene for Ng to drive in a RBI single. Hug then was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Tyler Cox (Eckerd) drove in two runs from a scorching single down the first base line, putting the Chucks in the lead with a score of 3-1, which would hold through the end of the game, giving the Woodchucks the win.

Matt Milner (Southwestern Oklahoma State) pitched a complete 7 inning game by only allowing one run on three hits on the night. He slammed the door by striking out nine batters in his outing, with 70 of his 104 pitches being strikes. His efforts would allow the Woodchucks to gain traction in their race to the playoffs.
