MADISON, Wis. – Duck hunting season in the state of Wisconsin does not start until late September. However, the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters did not get the memo, as they beat down the Mallards in Madison tonight, 12-6. The Rafters were held scoreless in the top of the first, but Wisconsin Rapids starting pitcher, Brandon Scott, also held the Mallards scoreless in the home half. However, the Rats bats got started in the top of the second. A leadoff homer from Andrew Semo, his first of 2022, gave the Rafters a 1-0 lead. Later in the inning, a two-out two-run single from McKinley Erves put Wisconsin Rapids ahead 3-0.
