Booyah come from behind against Chinooks

With the win, Green Bay extended its season-high winning streak to five games.
They are now 2-0 in the second half of the season.

Entering the seventh inning, the Booyah had left six men on base.

With one away, Brendan Ryan (Texas A&M-Corpus Christi) singled to center.
That was followed by Jake Berg (Jacksonville) getting hit by a pitch and Max Wagner (Clemson) working a walk.
With the bases loaded, Kaden Hollow (Dixie State) worked a walk that forced in Ryan.
Afterward, Tristin Garcia (Western Kentucky) hit a grounder to second.
The Chinooks’ second baseman flipped to second to force Hollow out, but the return from the shortstop was errant and got past the first
