WAUSAU, WI – A day removed from a loss in the rain at Athletic Park, the Wisconsin  Woodchucks were back in action at home looking for redemption in the series finale against the  Fond du Lac Dock Spiders. 

They left no doubt early that they would be back in the win column Friday evening. 

The Chucks set the tone from the beginning, with Tyler Kehoe scoring Kevin Kilpatrick on just  the second at bat of the game. Bash Randle scored later in the frame after walking in his first  plate appearance as a Woodchuck in an inning which also included a run on a passed ball. 

Kilpatrick and Kehoe also logged RBIs in the fourth inning to extend Wisconsin’s lead to 5-0. 

The Woodchucks didn’t allow a run in the early-season, first place determining matchup.  Wisconsin’s pitching staff combined for 12 strikeouts and no walks Friday. 

With the win, the Chucks remain in first place in the Great Lakes West Division by a game and a  half over Fond du Lac. Wisconsin is 8-3 on the season and has not dropped a series in 2021. 

Top Performers 

Starting pitcher Osvaldo Mendez pitched five shutout innings with nine strikeouts and just one  walk. He allowed five hits while converting a first base pickoff attempt.  

Kehoe went 2-3 with a double, a walk and an RBI.

Kilpatrick was also 2-3 with a walk and an RBI. 

Harley Gollert threw three frames out of the bullpen, striking three batters out and allowing just a  singular hit.
