The Chucks have won six straight to move into the final spot for the playoff race and were back at Athletic Park Thursday, trying to make it two straight against Waterloo


A little controversy early, Bucks leading 1-0, Andrew Ewing at the plate, pops up into foul territory, three Chucks go for it, it looks like it drops, but Rob Lind holds the ball up in his glove.

After a long deliberation between the umpires they say foul ball and things unravel for the Chucks, they allow eight runs in the third inning, two on this double from Jake Astor and they trail 9-0.

They get a couple back in the bottom of the fourth, Jamie Bruno with a man on, takes it over the wall in center.
