McCoy places himself in Northwoods League history, sets hits record.

The La Crosse Loggers gained some strong momentum heading into the postseason next week, defeating the Mallards in both games of their Saturday doubleheaders, winning the first game 6-1, and the nightcap 2-0. As the Loggers celebrated picking up a pair of crucial wins, their star Mason McCoy cemented himself in the Northwoods League record books, setting the single-season hits record.

McCoy had seemingly just another day at the ballpark tonight, as the All-Star 2nd baseman combined for four hits, two runs and two RBIs in the doubleheader, hitting his ninth home run, and smashing the single-season hits record that had not been broken in twenty seasons, setting the mark with 111 on the year. A sophomore who will attend Iowa next year, McCoy has proven himself to provide an MVP-caliber season in 2015, leading the league with a .369 batting average, hitting 9 home runs and driving in 42 RBIs, as well as stealing 15 bases and is second in the league with 20 doubles. 

McCoy and the Loggers will look to top off their 2015 regular season, taking on Madison again with first pitch scheduled for 5:05 PM.
