Mankato, MN – The MoonDogs would end the 2015 season with bang as they would sweep the Express by a score of 10-1 at Franklin Rogers Park in Mankato, Minnesota to end another season of MoonDogs baseball Sunday night.

The crowd of 1,330 would again see the Mankato MoonDogs (15-21, 33-39) offense explode for 10 runs on 12 hits in the game. While the Eau Claire Express (16-21, 29-42) would be held to just one run on five hits in the game.
