Wisconsin Rapids, WI June 9, 2010 (PRESS RELEASE)- The Rafter's offense burst out for their largest run total to date in a 7-3 win Wednesday, over the visiting Battle Creek Bombers.
Down 1-0 early Wisconsin Rapids tallied three runs in the second and never looked back. Zach Harazin notched a 2-for-4 night with two RBI in just his second start. The UW-La Crosse freshman is making the most of his temporary contract with the Rafters.
"It will be great to be able to look back on this and know I contributed to one of the team's wins," Harazin said. "This is a great opportunity, even if just for a few weeks, I wouldn't have missed this for anything."
Mitch Running held the Bombers to just two runs through five innings in his first start of the season. Running struggled through the first, allowed a run and tossed 27 pitches. But the second UW-La Cross Eagle to star on the night bounced back to strike out five and surrender just five hits to get his first win. Tommy Organ nailed down the final seven outs and struck out the side to end the game.
The Rafters and Bombers square off again Thursday night at 7:05. All fans will receive a poster schedule courtesy of the Shoe Box. Catch all the action on AM 1320 WFHR and online at wfhr.com.
