The Madison Mallards have dropped the first two games of the second half of the season. The Battle Creek Bombers muscled their way past the Mallards by a score of 10-2 last night behind some explosive offense.
Early on in the game, the Bombers were able to build a sizable lead behind two home runs at accounted for seven of their runs. Although the Mallards were able to collect a respectable eight hits, their only two runs came off of the bat of David Vinksy, who had a home run in the third inning. The Mallards relief pitching was able to limit the damage after the third inning last night, as they threw the last 6 innings without surrendering another run.
The Mallards will look to get back on the winning track as they open up a two-game series in Kenosha. After the series in Kenosha, the Mallards will stay on the road for another series against Battle Creek. Be sure to tune in to 96.7 FM/1670 AM The Zone to hear every pitch this season.
