Game two got off to a better start, when the Blue Ribbons jumped out to an early lead with a run in the first inning. After Sam Kohnle was hit by a pitch and Matt Bald drew a walk, right fielder Yuta Kudoh lined a double to left, driving in Kohnle with the game’s first run.

The Braves responded with a run in their half of the first, but Green Bay answered by exploding for nine runs in the second inning, capped off by a Sam Kohnle double that drove in Tyler Blum and Zach Ziesmer to make it 10-1.

The Ribbons added to their lead in the third, scoring three more runs, highlighted by a single off the bat of third baseman Ethan Habetler that scored Kudoh, but Addison put up three of their own in the bottom half, making it 13-4 through three innings.

Greater Green Bay finished out the scoring with two more runs in the fifth, as designated hitter Zach Ziesmer blasted a two-run home run, and Nathan Peterson finished out the game with 2.1 scoreless innings of relief as the Blue Ribbons improved their record on the season to 3-2.
