FARGO — The Milwaukee Milkmen scored seven unanswered runs on Thursday as they clinched a series win over the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks with a 7-1 American Association Baseball win in front of 1,440 fans at Newman Outdoor Field.

The RedHawks (4-8) got on the board first in the opening frame when Brennan Metzger scampered around the bases after a lead-off single to start the inning. Correlle Prime grounded into a double play to score Metzger and give Fargo-Moorhead a 1-0 lead.

Prime extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a single in the third inning. He has hits in his last 13 games stretching back to Game 5 of the 2019 North Division Championship Series.

Milwaukee (7-4) scored three runs in the third and added runs in the fourth, sixth, eighth and ninth innings to finish with seven runs in the game.

On Wednesday night, Milwaukee scored the first eight runs and held off a late RedHawks rally to win 10-6 in front of 1,103 fans at Newman Outdoor Field.

A six-run fifth inning for the Milkmen put the visiting team in front 8-0, the same score the RedHawks led Tuesday night's game by before a Milwaukee rally kept the game close. Adam Walker capped the inning with a three-run home run, his third of the 2020 season.

Drew Ward got the RedHawks on the board with a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth, his second long ball in as many games, and brought in another run in the sixth with an RBI double. Ward went 2-for-5 in the game with a home run, a double and two RBIs.
