Woodchucks, Dock Spiders Resume Play After Delay

June 10, 2021 - Northwoods League (Northwoods) - Wisconsin Woodchucks News Release

WAUSAU, WI - The Wisconsin Woodchucks and Fond du Lac Dock Spiders underwent a lengthy delay at Athletic Park, but play has resumed in the backdrop of steady lingering showers.

A storm cell slowly danced through Marathon County Thursday evening, forcing the umpires to stop the matchup between frames in the second inning. The hiatus- called at approximately 7 p.m., lasted officially two hours and two minutes.

The Dock Spiders led 5-1 when the game was paused. Two third inning runs allowed Fond du Lac to extend their margin to 7-1 before making it 8-1 on a fourth inning sacrifice fly.

Wisconsin is 6-1 when trailing in games in 2021. The 7-2 Chucks will look to improve that mark while growing their one and a half game lead over the Dock Spiders in the Great Lakes West Division.

Brandon Trammell opened the scoring for the Woodchucks in the bottom of the first with a solo home run to right field. The Dock Spiders however responded with a five-run second inning, scoring on a fielder's choice, a defensive error and a double off the left field wall.

Will Geerdes started on the mound for Wisconsin. His outing lasted two innings before being relieved by Sean Higgins after the weather delay.
