The Madison Mallards came back from a seven run deficit Thursday night, but they couldn't keep the momentum against the Wisconsin Woodchucks.

The Woodchucks ended up getting a 16-9 victory Thursday at the "Duck Pond."

The Mallards dug a big hole for themselves early. They were down 7-0 going into the bottom of the third after roughing up Mallards starting pitcker Nick Smith.

However, the Mallards scored two in the third and one in the fourth before tying the game 8-8 after scoring five runs in the fifth inning.

But it was all Woodchucks after that. They scored another eight runs in the final four innings. The Woodchucks got 21 hits on the night, while the Mallards got 16.

The Mallards are now 6-3 in the south division of the Northwoods League. They won the first half of the season and are guaranteed a spot in the playoffs.

The Mallards will head to Mequon Friday to finish a game that was suspended in the 16th inning on June 22nd. They will continue the previously suspended game at 5:30 pm. The game was suspended because a City of Mequon ordinance states that an inning cannot begin past 11:00 pm. The game was tied at three after 16 innings. They will play another game at 7:05 pm.

They will play the Chinooks away from home on Saturday at 6:35 pm before concluding their series with Lakeshore on Sunday with a 5:05 pm game in Madison.
