MILKMEN SPLIT WITH GOLDEYES
By: Jason Howarth
Game 1 of the doubleheader was a bit of a hit fest for both teams, Winnipeg with 8 hits and Milwaukee with 10 (Half of those were doubles).
The Goldeyes would tie the game in the fourth, but the Milkmen would take a one run lead in the fourth. The Goldeyes would claim a one run lead with two runs in the fifth, but Milwaukee would score one in the fifth to tie the game at four.
That score would stand into the bottom of the ninth (extra innings under a doubleheader's normal 7 innings), when Boscan hit the walk off single to seal the deal. Adam Walker, Garrett Copeland, Jose Rosario, and Dan Ward also batted in runs for the Milkmen.
Starting pitcher for Milwaukee, Angel Ventura pitched 5.2 innings, allowing 7 hits, 4 runs (3 earned), 1 walk and 6 strikeouts. Zach Hartman walked away with the win (third of the season).
The second game was a heavy pitching battle with a scoreless game until the sixth with an RBI double by Jonathan Moroney of the Goldeyes. The Milkmen had just 4 hits in the second game.
T.J. House pitched a full seven innings in the second game, allowing 5 hits, 1 run, 1 walk and 2 strikeouts.
