Dogs Muzzled in Battle of Former Big Leaguers
Rosemont, Ill. — David Holmberg struck out eight and allowed just three runs as the Milwaukee Milkmen edged the Chicago Dogs, 4-3, in front of a sold-out crowd at Impact Field. A night after the Dogs blasted five home runs, the league’s most powerful offense hit just one — a Blake Allemand two-run shot in the fourth inning. Holmberg and the dominant Milwaukee bullpen kept the Dogs scoreless after the fourth inning, and two early RBI base hits from Zach Nehrir were enough to seal the series win.

Losing Pitcher: RHP Eddie Butler

Star of the Game: INF Blake Allemand. Last night’s walk-off hero drove in all three Chicago runs on Thursday, courtesy of a second-inning double and his fourth-inning longball.
