Late Rally for Milkmen, Fall Short to Chicago

By Jason Howarth

A damp afternoon brought out the mosquitos, which was fitting for Mosquito Day here at Routine Field.

The Milkmen took the lead early in the first with an RBI single by Garrett Copeland.

The Chicago Dogs took a 2-1 lead in the fourth and would extend their lead in the six and eighth innings, with the two runs scored in the eighth coming off a pair of solo homers.

Milwaukee rallied with two runs in the eighth, one of which was an RBI single by Manny Boscan (49). The Milkmen finished with 6 hits and 7 men left on base.

Milwaukee starter, T.J. House, took his ninth loss. He pitched 3 1/3 innings, allowing 6 hits, 4 runs (3 earned), 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts.

The Milkmen remain home and start a three game series with the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. The first game will be tomorrow (August 21st) with a 7:05 pm first pitch.
