couldn’t have come at a better time.

With the Mallards down 7-6 to Lakeshore in game 2 of the best 2-of-3 Northwoods League playoff series, Ruchim clubbed a 3-run homer.  He added a 2-run blast for insurance as the Mallards went on to beat Lakeshore 14-8.

The Mallards victory evens the series at a game apiece with the third and deciding game tonight at Lakeshore.

Ruchim finished his big day at the plate by going 3 for 3 with six rbi’s and 2 runs scored.
