Kenosha, Wisc. – The La Crosse Loggers fell at the hands of the top-seeded Kenosha Kingfish in Simmons Field tonight. The Loggers’ season ends and the Kingfish move on to face the Madison Mallards tomorrow in Kenosha.

Pay McInerney put Kenosha in the driver’s seat with a solo home run blast with two outs in the second inning. The Kingfish broke out in the 5th inning. John Brodner doubled to lead off the inning. After a sacrifice hit that moved him to third, Liam Carter (Missouri) came in to pitch for the Loggers.

The Loggers starting chopping down the Kenosha lead in the 6th inning. Will Savage (Columbia) advanced on a leadoff walk. He advanced to second and third on two consecutive wild pitches by Kingfish reliever Rico Garcia. Savage scored during the same at-bat on a balk. Jordan Zimmerman (Michigan State) added to the comeback in the 7th on his two-out solo home run, cutting the lead to 7-2.

Adam Dressler shut down La Crosse’s hopes for a comeback victory on the road with a scoreless inning and two thirds to finish off the game. The loss ends a record-breaking, action-packed 2015 season.
