Kevin Smith went 4-for-5 with a double and two runs batted in and Kevin Vicuna collected a double among his three hits and two walks at the top of the order. That gave the Lugnuts a convincing win over the Brewers affiliate in the Cheesehead State. Brock Lundquist doubled twice with an intentional pass and Christian Williams had a two-hit effort. Yeltsin Gudino singled, walked and drove in four runs.
Maverik Buffo was dinged for a solo homer over five innings but yielded just five hits and a walk while whiffing two and inducing five groundball outs for the win. Donnie Sellers gave up two runs over three frames but struck out five and Brody Rodning surrendered an unearned marker in the ninth.
