Express Keep The Bats Rolling
Eau Claire, WI– The Express is able to keep their bats hot after last nights win against the Duluth Huskies
Eau Claire Express Postgame Recap:
To say the least, a thriller tonight as the Express takes down the Moondogs 9-3 in explosive fashion. Both offense and defense executed, tallying runs and strikeouts left and right.
On the mound, between Mankato’s Jack Brown and Dallas Baptist’s Luke Trahan, only 6 hits were allowed while recording 7 strikeouts through 9. Brown took the first 5 innings and the win as Trahan held strong on the backend, pitching the last 4 innings.
On the offensive, balls were coming off the bats clean as the Express tallied 9 hits, including 2 doubles and a 3-run Home Run from Cal Poly’s Nick Marinconz. Key performances from Stanford’s Eddie Park and Santa Barbara’s Omar Gastelum paved the way for victory as between the 3 players previously mentioned, 5 hits and 6 RBIs were recorded.
Altogether, a fantastic performance from the home team Express brings momentum and electricity to Carson Park. Both components we look to take into our matchup against the Moondogs once again tomorrow.
