Eau Claire, WI – The Eau Claire Express (13-20) dropped game one of the two game series in Bismarck against the Larks (22-11) with a final score of 5-1.

The Express offense outhit the Larks but failed to score more than one run. Eau Claire threatened in the 3rd inning.

The Express would put a runner on third again in the 4th inning. Cody Milligan (Oklahoma State) reached on a fielder’s choice. Andrew Pratt slashed a double to center field to put Milligan at third.
