Muskrats split with Watford City

The MLS-G-KB Muskrats hosted Watford City on Monday, April 20th at Lansford for a doubleheader. Both games counted towards the teams’ season records, as an earlier game in Watford City had to be postponed due to the weather.

In game one, Watford City got on the boards first, as they scored a run in the top of the first, but the Muskrats came back and tied things up in the bottom of the first, with a run of their own. Watford City then took a 4 to 1 lead in the top of the third, as they scored three runs in that inning. The Muskrats cut into that lead in the bottom of the fourth when they managed to get another run home, making it a 4 to 2 game in favor of Watford City. However, the Wolves answered with a run in the top of the fifth to increase their lead to 5 to 2. Then in the bottom of the fifth, Connor Brackenbury stepped to the plate and jacked one out of the park for a solo homerun, making it a 5 to 3 game. But the top of the sixth was a big inning for Watford City as they scored 8 runs in that inning. It was now a 13 to 3 game. The Muskrats managed to muster up three runs in the bottom of the sixth, as Isaac Undlin and Wyatt Schmidt each got on with a single and a double respectively, before Brett Froseth stepped to the plate and sent the ball over the left field fence for the three run homer and the team’s second home run of the game. It was now a 13 to 6 game as the teams headed into the seventh and final inning. Watford City went on to win the game 16 to 7 as they scored another three runs in the top of the seventh and MLS-G-KB only scored one run.
