Chuck Bats Quiet As They Fall to Chinooks
WAUSAU, WI – The Wisconsin Woodchucks mustered just three hits in a 10-3 loss to the Lakeshore Chinooks on Tuesday night at Athletic Park.
The Chinooks struck first with a trio of runs in the opening frame, but Wisconsin kept themselves in the contest with five straight shutout innings on the mound.
Lakeshore then added a fourth run in the sixth on a sacrifice fly and four runs in the seventh to put additional breathing room between themselves and the Chucks. The visitors piled on with five further runs in the eighth.
Wisconsin’s highlight was a solo home run from Ben McCabe in the eighth. It was the second big fly of the year in six games for the catcher.
The Woodchucks are now 25-18 overall in 2021 and 4-4 in the second half of the Northwoods League season. Their four-game winning streak was snapped in the loss, as the Chinooks were able to salvage the series finale win after being swept by the Chucks in a doubleheader Monday.
Starting pitcher Cade Denton went four innings, allowing the three early runs while issuing two walks and striking out three. Peyton Schofield threw three and two-thirds innings out of the bullpen; Dane Miller pitched one and a third.
McCabe had a solo homer while going 1-3.
Bash Randle went 1-2 with a walk.
