DockHounds Start Slow After The Break

Oconomowoc, Wis. – The DockHounds had a lot of momentum coming into the second half of the season Friday night in Oconomowoc. The first matchup of the season between Lake Country and the Sioux Falls Canaries went the way of the visitors by a final score of 11-4.

After Jorge Guzman struggled on the mound in his DockHounds debut, Augie Voight and Marco Becerril came out of the bullpen to finish the game for the Hounds. Becerril was without a doubt, the star of the game for Ken Huckaby’s squad. In just his third appearance in a Lake Country uniform, Becerril went 5 innings in relief, giving up 4 hits and just 1 run, walking 2 and striking out 7.

Offensively, the middle of the DockHounds order continued to hit the ball well.

Three-hitter Demetrius Sims reached base three times, on a single and two walks. From the cleanup spot, Marcus Chiu had three hits and was a homer short of the cycle. The Hounds first-baseman had a single, double and triple to go along with 2 RBIs.

Lake Country will look to bounce back tomorrow evening as Mike Shawaryn will get the start on the Mound. He will be opposed by Ty Culbreth for the Canaries. First pitch is scheduled for 6:05 from Wisconsin Brewing Company Park.
