DOGS BATS TOO MUCH FOR MILKMEN
The Milwaukee Milkmen traveled to Chicago for their final series on the road. The Milkmen were roughed up by the strong offense of the Chicago Wieners (as they are called at their park).
The final score was 10-3 in favor of the Dogs, however, for a short time it appeared that the Milkmen were going to make it a ball game. After Chicago put up a single run in the bottom of the first inning, Milwaukee’s offense began to click in the top of the second. Dan Ward was safe at first on an error by their shortstop, and Garrett Copeland followed with a walk. Jose Rosario followed with a sharp grounder to short, who threw to third to force Ward. Sam Dexter, the hottest hitter for the Milkmen in August, followed with a single driving in Copeland. Glen McClain followed with a sharp single to center field scoring Rosario and Dexter, making the score 3-1 in favor of the Milkmen.
That score remained until the bottom of the fifth when the Dogs plated three runs to take the lead 4-3. Adam Walker was the lone Milkman to have two hits while McClain drove in two runs and Dexter one. The Dogs banged out fourteen (14) hits and earned four free passes to close out the evening with six runs in the late innings for the 10-3 Victory.
The two teams continue their series Thursday night at 6:05 at Impact Field in Rosemont, Illinois.
