Express Beat Out Bombers Friday Night

The Eau Claire Express beat the Battle Creek Bombers last night, seven to four. The Express started off with a three run lead in the first inning and they did not stop there.

In the first inning, Bombers pitcher, Chad Jasman, loaded the bases with a walk. Then Josh Scheffert hit a 2 RBI single with two outs. Andy Leonard was walked and recored a single on that walk.

In the fourth inning there was a double play to end the Express’ batting. Josh Lyon hit a sacrifice fly to score a run and make it four to two in favor of the Express.

Josh Rosecrans, Noble Enriquez and Beau Didier were put into a pickle situation. It looked like they were juggling out there and Enriquez hung onto the ball for the put out on Morris.
