The Madison Mallards snapped a two-game losing streak Thursday night, but they needed extra help from their closer to do it.

Hunter May shut out the Green Bay Bullfrogs for the final 2 1/3 innings to help the Mallards hold on to a 6-5 victory. For May, it was his 11th save of the season, which leads the Northwoods League.

The Mallards go three runs in the third, and scored the rest of their runs in the sixth inning, thanks to a homer by Tate Matheny and RBI's from Erik Forgione and John LaPrise.

The Bullfrogs would come back in the seventh, thanks to a two-run home run by Ryan Drobny. However, May came in with runners on first and third and picked off Tom Sawyer at first before throwing one pitch.

The Mallards are now 11-6 in the second half of the season. They go on the road for a three game road trip before the all-star break next week. They play their next home game next Thursday at the Duck Pond.
