Bullfrogs' First Winning Streak Since First Week Of Season



The Bullfrogs extended their winning streak to three games with a 10-1 blowout victory over Wisconsin Rapids on Tuesday. It was the largest margin of victory for Green Bay this season.

Wisconsin Rapids’ defense got off to a rough start on the evening. There were four errors in the first two innings that allowed Green Bay's offense to get rolling.  Andrew Ely (Washington) scored in the first inning off of a Boomer White (TCU) single to give the Bullfrogs a 1-0 lead.

Green Bay came back in the second inning to score four more runs with two more RBI for Boomer White. After two innings, the Bullfrogs already had a 5-0 lead with starting pitcher Matt Esparza (Tennessee) also cruising on the mound. Esparza had his best outing of the season on Tuesday, after his statistical worst outing of the season in his last time out against the Rafters.

Esparza carried a no hit bid through six innings and looked to keep it alive in the seventh with a 7-0 lead over the Rafters. His chance ended with one out, as Jonathon Moroney (Texas A&M) hit a triple in the gap in right field. Jackson Slaid (Montevallo) hit a double to the same gap in right field to get the Rafters' first run on the board. Esparza stranded Slaid at second though, keeping a 7-1 lead after seven innings.

Green Bay added three more runs leading up to the ninth for a commanding 10-1 lead. Robert Youngdahl (Notre Dame) pitched a scoreless eighth, while Brian Trieglaff (TCU) pitched a scoreless ninth to finish it off for a 10-1 Bullfrogs victory.

The win went to Matt Esparza (1-0) and the loss to John Kravetz (3-2).  Green Bay improved to 16-18 on the season.
