Madison wins ninth game in a row to tie franchise record

posted by iHeartMedia Sports Staff - 

Madison held off a late rally from Kenosha to win their ninth game in a row, tying a franchise record, and stayed two games on top of the South Division of the Northwoods League on Monday night.

Madison 5, Kenosha 3

The Madison Mallards (11-3) tied their longest winning streak in franchise history, hanging on in the ninth inning, to defeat the Kingfish 5-3 Monday night at Simmons Field. The victory gave the Mallards their ninth win in a row and fourth straight series sweep. Starting pitcher Dalton Wiggins (Marietta) spun six scoreless innings to earn the victory, and has not allowed an earned run in 19 innings this year. 

Waterloo 8, Eau Claire 5

The Eau Claire Express (4-10) lost the second game of the two game set to the Waterloo Bucks (5-8) by a score of 8-5.

Fond du Lac 6, Lakeshore 3

A five-run third inning dug the Lakeshore Chinooks into an early hole and they were never able to overcome the deficit in a 6-3 loss Monday against the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders.
