Zimmerman Strikes Out Ten in Milkmen Victory


GARY, Ind.- In game two, Milwaukee Milkmen (57-41) starter Ryan Zimmerman threw 6.2 innings of one-run baseball while striking out ten Gary SouthShore RailCats (39-59) en route to a 4-1 victory, Zimmerman’s tenth win of the year.


Despite 8.2 innings from Trevor Lubking who allowed four runs, three of which earned, on five hits while striking out nine, the RailCats struggled to provide run support in the loss.


Lubking threw five scoreless innings while allowing just one hit before Jay Charleston stepped in as a pinch hitter. Charleston would belt his first homer of the season, a three-run shot over the left-field wall, to give the Milkmen a 3-0 lead.


An inning later, Trey Martin drove home the fourth run of the day with his first of two singles as the Milkmen extended the lead. 


The sole RailCats run of the day came on an MJ Rookard solo home run in the seventh inning, his second of the year.


Game three of the four-game set between the Gary SouthShore RailCats and the Milwaukee Milkmen is scheduled for tomorrow, September 5 at 6:10 p.m. at the Steel Yard in Gary, Indiana.
