Box Score

Eau Claire, WI – In front of a large Carson Park crowd, the Eau Claire Express (2-6) fell in a close 3-2 game to the La Crosse Loggers (3-5).

Lakeland University Postgame Recap: The Loggers started the second inning by scoring two runs on a walk, single, fielder choice, and error. They scored their third run of the game in the following top of the third inning on a single, Express error, and a bases loaded walk.

Working from behind the whole game, Eau Claire began to chip away at the La Crosse lead in the bottom of the 5th inning. In his first game back at Carson Park, second year player David LaManna (Notre Dame) slashed a double to left field. LaManna advanced to 3rd on a wild pitch. Sam Kohnle (Winona State) hit an RBI single to drive LaManna in for the first Express run of the game.

In the bottom of the 6th the Express would once again try to diminish the Loggers lead. Brock Burton (Grand Canyon) was hit by a pitch and Troy Beilsmith (Evansville) smacked a hard hit line drive for a single that plated Burton and put the score to 3-2.

Colt Mink (Flagler) started the game for the Express and went 2.1 innings, giving up three runs on two hits and four walks. Eau Claire’s player of the game, Jack Brown (Minnesota State), entered in relief and tossed a scoreless 4.2 innings. He struck out seven Loggers in that time. Noah Denoyer was strong in the final two innings for the Express, allowing only one hit and earning three K’s.

The Express travel to La Crosse tomorrow to play both the postponed game and the regularly scheduled game. The first begins at 5:30 with the second to follow thirty minutes after completion of the first. Eau Claire will then return home to Carson Park to welcome the Waterloo Bucks for a two game set.
