Wednesday night was yet another walk-off win for the Madison Mallards, as they beat the Kalamazoo Growlers by a score of 5-4. The Mallards improved their record to 47-21, and 19-13 in the second half.
Kalamazoo was in control most of the game, but the Mallards didn’t give up easily. Madison entered the seventh inning down 4-2, until Garrett Kueber came up to bat. The bases were loaded thanks to three consecutive walks, and Kueber was able to get a fly ball deep enough to score the runner on third.
Alex Reyes came on to hold the game at 4-3 for the eighth and the ninth, leaving it up to the offense to send it to extras.
Andrew Baker led off the Mallards’ half of the ninth with a single, Jake Randa pinch-hit and was able to reach second on a throwing error going to first. With Baker standing on third and Randa on second, Cam Cratic grounded out to drive in the tying run. Garrett Kueber was able to produce a single to left field, which brought in the winning run, Jake Randa.
