posted by Jimmie Kaska - 

It's the final day of the first half of the Northwoods League season, which features a Lakeshore-Kenosha doubleheader after Monday's impressive rally by Lakeshore to beat Kenosha. Also, Madison begins a stretch of three straight home games.

Lakeshore 5, Kenosha 4 - The Lakeshore Chinooks took the lead in the seventh and defeated the Kenosha Kingfish 5-4. Lakeshore tied it in the seventh from a home run by Jim Govern (Eastern Illinois) and scored the eventual game-winner in the same inning from an RBI single by Zach Clayton (Oregon State).

Madison 4, Wisconsin Rapids 2 - The Madison Mallards held the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters to just one inning of scoring and won the game 4-2.

Willmar 12, Eau Claire 5 - The Willmar Stingers took the lead in the third with five runs which was enough to go on and defeat the Eau Claire Express 12-5.
