LA CROSSE, WI – Looking to bounce back after opening night, the La Crosse Loggers were ready to take the home turf once again against the Duluth Huskies in hopes of pushing to .500 on the season.

Standing on the mound to start for the Loggers was junior RHP, Taylor Turner (Madonna). Turner began throwing strong allowing just one run on one hit through two innings. Events quickly took a turn for the worse when Duluth scored five runs in the top of the third inning. Failure to find the strike zone resulted in Jason Seever (Arizona) to come in to relieve Turner.

Seever rapidly went to work to try and get the Loggers back into the competition. That he did, Seever pitched 3.1 innings holding the Huskies to zeros across the board. Not to forget to mention, he struck out seven batters. After a redshirt junior season at Arizona, Seever was eager to put his skills to work in a La Crosse Loggers' uniform. Unfortunately, his efforts would not be enough.

Offensively, the Loggers' bats were scattered scarcely throughout the lineup totaling six hits on the night. Collecting the hits for the Loggers were Taylor Sanagorski (Emporia State), Nick Schranck (UT-Rio Grande Valley), Ryan Mantle (Jefferson CC), Sage Bruhl (MATC), Garrett Christman (Butler), and Mike Ferri (UW-Milwaukee) with Derik Beauprez (Nova Southeastern), Mike Ferri (UW-Milwaukee), Ryan Mantle (Jefferson CC), and Yahir Gurrola (North Florida) recording one RBI each.

The La Crosse Loggers will start another two-game homestand against the Mankato MoonDogs with the next game set for 7:05 PM Thursday evening. Gates will open at 6 PM as the first "Happy Hour" with Howie's on La Crosse is set to take place.
