Woodchucks Split with Kingfish
Wausau, Wis.- The Wausau Woodchucks (30-31) faced off against the Kenosha Kingfish (29-33) in an attempt to split the series on a warm Wednesday night at Athletic Park. Nick Marshall (West Texas A&M) started on the bump for the Chucks, making quick work by only allowing one hit through the first three innings. The Woodchucks ended the night victorious with a final score of 8-6.
The Woodchucks struck first in the bottom of the 1st inning with an RBI single by Tyler Cox (Eckerd) that drove in JC Ng (Pomona-Pitzer). Wausau loaded the bases in the bottom of the 3rd inning just before a wild pitch allowed Chase Hug (Evansville) to score, putting the Chucks up 2-0.
Kenosha put up one run in the top of the 4th inning, but it would not go unanswered as the Chucks plated two more in the bottom of the inning. Cox helped the cause by smashing an RBI double to right field, scoring Ng from second base.
The Kingfish would tie the game in the 6th inning, but Hug would retaliate by blasting a massive two run home run to silence their cheers. The Kingfish would load the bases with Chucks after a series of walks, and Hug would take full advantage with a two run single in the bottom of the 7th inning, giving himself five RBIs on the night.
Kenosha was unable to come back despite scoring one more run in the top of the 8th, leaving the Woodchucks to close out the game and bring home a win with a final score of 8-6.
The Woodchucks will return to Athletic Park Saturday, August 6th to face the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders at 6:05pm. There will be fireworks following Saturday's game, brought to you by Crystal Finishing Systems. Come cheer on the Chucks and enjoy a spectacular show!
