For the fourth time in 2021, Mother Nature disrupted play at Athletic Park in Wausau.

And it was with the help of Mother Nature that the Wisconsin Woodchucks could officially defeat the Green Bay Booyah 3-1 on Monday.

The Woodchucks and Booyah initially underwent a lengthy delay in Monday night’s contest. At 7:22, heavy rains and lightning in the vicinity suspended the teams’ matchup after three innings. As a persistent rainfall slowed to a sprinkle and eventually tapered out in its entirety, the tarp was removed from the playing surface around 9:15 and a 9:45 start time was set.

A 1-0 lead became a 3-1 advantage for the Chucks after four and a half innings. As play was stopped again at 10:28, the game could become official, and Wisconsin could claim the win.

Before the opening stoppage, the Woodchucks scored a run in the bottom of the first Monday with a pair of doubles from Jordan Schaffer and Kevin Kilpatrick.

The teams picked up play in the top of the fourth after waiting for over two hours during the delay.

Green Bay tied the game immediately after resuming play, but the Chucks went back ahead 3-1 in the bottom of the fourth behind a Colton Vincent RBI and a Kilpatrick plate appearance that was scored as a fielder’s choice. This score held as the game became official after rain stopped play for a second time.

Wisconsin is now 19-10 and still atop the Great Lakes West Division.
