Aided by a brilliant performance by starting pitcher Zak Hermans, the Bullfrogs snapped a three game losing streak on Tuesday night with a 6-1 victory over the Wisconsin Woodchucks at Athletic Park in Wausau.
After a rapidly moving first three innings, Green Bay struck first in the bottom of the fourth when Ransom LaLonde brought home Justin Seager with a two-out single.
The Woodchucks tied it up in the bottom half of the frame. Joe Serrano came in to score on a Eric Filia-Snyder single to tie the game up at 1-1.
The Bullfrogs plated one more in the fifth when Mac Acker drove in Chris Hoo to make the score 2-1.
The biggest inning of the night for Green Bay was the sixth. With two down, Hoo doubled home LaLonde and Jason McMurray. Hoo later scored on a Colin Shaw single. The score through six innings was 5-1 in favor of the Bullfrogs.
Hoo drove home another run in the eighth to finish off the scoring at 6-1. All of Green Bay’s runs on the day came with two outs.
Hermans allowed one earned run in seven innings of work and struck out a season-high 10 batters. He was relieved by Alex Abrams who struck out the side in the eighth inning. Will Landsheft pitched a scoreless ninth.
The Bullfrogs improve to 21-13 on the year with the win.
