Despite a first inning home run from Adam Frank, the Wisconsin Woodchucks were not able to keep pace with the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders Monday, falling by a final score of 4-2.

Frank’s first inning home run was his seventh of the season. He is now tied with Byron Murray for the team lead in that category.

The Woodchucks offense created more opportunities to score in the third inning after they loaded the bases. Then, Byron Murray hit a fly ball deep to center field, but it was not enough to exit the ballpark. Murray settled for a sacrifice fly that brought home Alejandro Gonzalez from third.

The Dock Spiders scored the majority of their runs off Woodchucks starting pitcher Beau Nichols. He tossed seven innings and allowed three runs (one earned) on five hits. Nichols walked two and struck out four.

The Woodchucks will look to bounce back against the Dock Spiders when they travel to Fond du Lac to face them Tuesday.
