Justin Watland tosses 2-hitter for the Mallards.

The Madison Mallards (21-6) cruised to a 10-3 win over the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters Monday night in the sixth game of their seven game road swing.

Starting pitcher Justin Watland (San Jose State) allowed only two bloop hits and one unearned run in seven innings of work against the Rafters, walking none and fanning seven.  Watland has now spun 17 consecutive innings without allowing an earned run.

With Kalamazoo’s 7-4 loss at Fond Du Lac, the Mallards now have a two-game lead over the Growlers with nine left to play in the first half of the Northwoods League.
