LOVES PARK, Ill. (WTVO/WQRF) — The Rockford Rivets started the season slow by dropping their first three games. They’ve turned it around though with a three-game winning streak.
Monday night they outscored the Wisconsin Woodchucks 9-5. Their bats stayed hot from Sunday when they put 12 runs on the board against the Woodchucks. In Monday’s game the big blow was a grand slam homerun by infielder Chase Estep in the sixth inning. That staked the Rivets to a 7-3 lead.
The Rivets now hit the road for a pair of games Tuesday and Wednesday at Fond-Du-Lac. They’ll be back home for games Thursday and Friday against Wisconsin Rapids.
