Seven-run fifth inning sinks Mallards in Kenosha

Posted: Updated:

KENOSHA, WI -- A seven run fifth inning for the Kenosha Kingfish (11-8, 27-24) downed Madison Mallards (12-8, 30-23) tonight at Simmons Field by a final score of 11-4.

The Mallards scored three runs in the second inning, aided by a two RBI single from left fielder Tyler Allen (Virginia). Allen finished 1-for-4 with two RBI.

They would add one in the fifth inning before the Kingfish exploded in the bottom of the frame, scoring seven runs off three different Mallards pitchers.

Receiving the loss was Mallards reliever Nate Hoffmann (Madison College), who gave up three runs on two hits in 0.1 innings of work. Hoffmann drops to 1-3 on the year after he was the first of three relievers to come on in the fifth.

Kingfish reliever Connor Kelly (Chandler-Gilbert CC) tossed one inning, giving up one run on two hits in the fifth to get the win.

The Mallards stay in Kenosha tomorrow to wrap up their two game series against the Kingfish at 5:05 pm. After tomorrow, the Mallards are off for the Northwoods League All-Star Break until next Thursday, when they resume play in a home-and-home series against the Lakeshore Chinooks.

The Mallards play one in Mequon on Thursday at 6:35 pm and return to the “Duck Pond” on Friday for a 7:05 pm game.

Friday is Jay Hazen Dentistry for Madison Muskies Turn Back the Clock Night with a Toothbrush Giveaway. It is Badger Bowl Bowling Appreciation Night, as well as Bark in the Park, where fans can bring their pooch to the ballpark!
