The Northwoods League season is just over two weeks old, but Sam Forkert has settled into his role in the Madison Mallards bullpen. After starting a game against Green Bay early in the season, Forkert says that he is a reliever for the Mallards…. The Mallards are off to an (8-6) start after a 4-3 win over Wisconsin Rapids last night. Forkert has appeared in 5 games this summer, has recorded 2 saves while striking out 11 batters in 10 2/3 innings and has a 0.84 ERA. While the numbers look very good, Forkert says it’s a challenge every time he takes the mound.The Mallards play the Green Bay Bullfrogs tonight at 7:05 at Joannes Stadium in Green Bay.
