    The Wisconsin Rapids offense started slow and could not recover in loss to Green Bay

    Green Bay, Wis. – In game two of a two-game road series with the Green Bay Booyah (4-2), the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters (2-4) could not find an offensive rhythm in a 7-0 loss Sunday night.

    The Booyah posted three runs in the bottom of the second inning, but the Rafters defense held them scoreless over the next three frames. In the sixth inning, however, Green Bay broke the game open with four runs to take a 7-0 lead.

    Despite getting hits from Richie Schiekofer, Johnny Gonzales and Anthony Galason, the Rafters could not plate a run in the game. Starting pitcher Nathan Hemmerling gets the loss in four innings of work and Green Bay’s Jaret Godman picks up the win.

    The Rafters return home to face the Wisconsin Woodchucks at 6:35 at Historic Witter Field for Bang for Your Buck Monday. The Woodchucks are currently 4-2 on the season.
