Dogs One-Hit, Fall to Milkmen, 4-0
Franklin, Wis. — Starter Drew Hutchinson and a four-man cavalry out of the Milwaukee bullpen stifled the Chicago Dogs on Thursday night, as the Milkmen cruised to a 4-0 win. Chicago’s offense mustered just one hit in the loss, a Logan Moore single in the second inning. The Dogs did generate six walks, three of which led to a bases-loaded opportunity in the seventh inning, but Myles Smith forced an Edwin Arroyo flyout to end the threat. The Dogs failed to register a baserunner for the remainder of the game, as Milwaukee capped off a 2-1 series win.
