Booyah bats go cold at home

By Murray Gleffe

ASHWAUBENON — The Green Bay Booyah gave up three runs in each of the first two innings in a 9-0 Northwoods League loss to Fond du Lac July 29 at Capital Credit Union Park in Ashwaubenon.

Chris Jefferson took the loss for the Booyah, going 5 2/3 innings, giving up three earned runs and 13 hits.

Green Bay (13-15) managed only five hits and had two errors in the field, while the Dock Spiders collected 16 hits.

Before the home fans could barely take their seats, Fond du Lac lead-off hitter Victor Scott II sent the second pitch of the game over the video board in right field for a home run.

Sam Novitske, who went 5-for-6 on the night, drove a double to left.

A couple batters later, with two outs, the Dock Spiders (16-12) added more after John Rhodes doubled and Andrew Bullock singled, bringing in two additional runs.

On the flip side, starting Fond du Lac pitcher Jake Carr had command of the mound, striking out four batters in his first two innings.

Of Carr’s 63 pitches on the night, 43 landed in the sweet spot.

Fond du Lac added to their three-run in the top of the second.

Jack Alexander singled to center to lead off and Scott added to his first inning homer with an infield single to put runners on the corners.

Novitske connected on a blooping single to give the Dock Spiders a 4-0 lead.

With the help of a Booyah error, Fond du Lac led 6-0 35 minutes into the game.

The one bright spot for Green Bay came late when newly acquired shortstop Noah Granet (Princeton University) got his first hit in a Booyah uniform.

Fond du Lac added three runs down the stretch to capture the shutout victory.

Green Bay has dropped five in a row at home and will travel to league-leading (west division) Wisconsin Rapids for a two-game series July 30-31.
