The Green Bay Bullfrogs took advantage of a strong performance by starter Derek Callahan to beat the Madison Mallards 4-2 Wednesday night at the Duck Pond.

Callahan only gave up two runs on five hits over 7 2/3 innings, and those runs didn't come until the eighth inning.

The Mallards tried to come back, loading up the bases in the bottom of the ninth inning. But a line drive to short by John LaPrise ended the game instead.

Mallards starter Nick Smith had his best start of the season, giving up two runs on just three hits over five innings. The Mallards fall to 10-6 in the second half of the season, and is 31-18 overall.

The Mallards battle Green Bay again Thursday night at the Duck Pond at 7:05 p.m. before heading to Green Bay Friday to finish the series.
