FOUR-RUN SEVENTH RESULTS IN ANOTHER WALK-OFF WIN
GREEN BAY, WI – The Dodgers picked up their second walk-off victory of the week, overcoming a three-run deficit in the seventh inning to defeat the Burlington Barons by a score of 4-3 at Joannes Stadium on Friday night.
Burlington got on the board first, scoring two runs in the second and another in the third off of starting pitcher Matt Willems, who managed to turn in a quality start, going six innings while striking out three.
The Barons carried their three-run lead into the seventh inning, when Jake Thyes and Jacob Lacy drew back-to-back walks with one out. Center fielder Matt McNabb followed with a base hit to load the bases and second baseman Matt Bald punched a single into right-center to bring home Thyes with the Dodgers’ first run.
With the tying run on second and the bases still loaded, Noah Robinson blooped a base hit into left field, scoring Lacy to make the score 3-2, and then Griffin Summers drew a bases loaded walk to tie the ballgame.
Jayden Adrians, who started the game at third base before taking over for Willems on the mound, stepped to the plate with the winning run just 90 feet away and drove a single into right as Bald raced home with the winning run.
Robinson and McNabb finished the game with two hits each for the Dodgers while first baseman Cole Clark added a single and a walk to lead the offense and Adrians was credited with the win after tossing a scoreless seventh inning in relief.
