The Madison Mallards can not wait to get out of La Crosse. In the two game series, the Loggers scored 25 runs compared to the Mallards 11. Last night, the Loggers (9-5) overpowered the Mallards 10-5 in front of 3,578 fans at Copeland Park.

Billy Phillips started the game for the Mallards, giving up nine runs, seven of which were earned, in five and a third innings. Phillips struggled from the get-go, as he gave up four runs in the second inning putting the Mallards in a 4-1 hole.

The Mallards didn?t roll over though, as they trimmed the Logger lead to 5-4 in the fourth inning. Much like Friday night?s game, the Loggers put together a big inning, this time pounding out five runs in the bottom of the sixth.

Greg Thomson was a bright spot for the Mallards, going 4-5 with two runs batted in and a stolen base in the leadoff spot.

The Mallards (7-8) return home to face the Alexandria Beetles tonight at 7:05 PM. Tickets for all Mallards home games are still available both online, at, and at our office located at Warner Park.
