The Woodchucks fell to the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters on Tuesday night, 8-3 on the road.

Wisconsin flirted with a comeback late, but were unable to rally. The loss drops the Woodchucks to 0-4 at Witter Field this season.

Brandon Seltzer scored Kyle Hess with an RBI groundout in the sixth inning, which produced the first Woodchucks run. Wisconsin, however, still trailed 6-1 after six innings.

The Chucks collected two runs in the seventh, with Santiago Garavito and Myles Austin each collecting an RBI. This made the score 6-3, but that’s all the Woodchucks would score in the 8-3 loss.

The Woodchucks used just three pitchers in the game. Jace Baumann got his second start of the year, as was given the loss. He allowed four runs over 4.2 innings. JD Shultz also worked tonight, tossing 2.2 innings of four-run ball. Nathan Mirochnick went 0.2 innings as well.
