Bullfrogs Still Winless In Second Half



Despite three unanswered runs to close the game, the Bullfrogs fell to 0-5 in the second half of the season with a 4-3 loss to the Wisconsin Woodchucks on Monday.

Matt Esparza (Tennessee) got off to a rough start against the Woodchucks, allowing a one-out double to Garrett Rucker (Arkansas) in the first inning. Two batters later, catcher John Clay Reeves (Rice) drove in the first run of the game with a RBI single up the middle to give the Woodchucks a 1-0 advantage.

Wisconsin came back with three more runs in the top of the second inning, getting some help with two defensive errors from the Bullfrogs. An error from Tripp Martin (Samford) extended the inning allowing the bases to get loaded for Garrett Rucker up to bat.  Rucker singled to right field, scoring Tyler Stieb (San Joaquin Delta) and Edgar Figueroa (Wabash Valley College). On the same play, a throwing error from Nick Torres (Cal Poly) allowed Jake Jefferies to score from first, making it 4-0.

Green Bay was able to get the bats going in the fifth inning as Ryan Matranga (San Francisco) hit a two-run home run, his first of the season, to narrow down Wisconsin’s lead to 4-2.

The Bullfrogs threatened again in the sixth inning with the bases loaded.  A wild pitch brought Boomer White (TCU) home for the third run of the night for the Bullfrogs. Due to some baserunning miscues, that was all that Green Bay was able to get in the inning. Through six innings, the score was 4-3 in favor of Wisconsin.

The Woodchucks' bullpen then shut down the Bullfrogs bats. Aaron Fossas (Wake Forest) pitched 2.1 scoreless innings before being relieved by Jackson Lowery (Arkansas). Lowery pitched a perfect ninth to earn the save and clinch a 4-3 Wisconsin victory.

The win went to Woodchucks starter Ryan McCarthy (1-1). The loss was charged to Esparza (1-2), and save to Lowery (5).
