SIX RUN SIXTH DOOMS HONKERS
LA CROSSE, WIS – The Rochester Honkers dropped game one of a two game series to the Loggers 11-8 Sunday night at Copeland Park.
The game didn’t start well for Rochester. La Crosse took a quick 4-0 lead in the first, three of those runs coming off the bat of a Blaise Priester (LSU) three run home run. However, the Honkers followed that up with eight unanswered runs. They put up three runs in the third, thanks to run scoring hits by Michael Brown (Washington) and Kimo Fukofuka (San Jose State). Scored three more in the fourth thanks to four La Crosse errors and scored a pair in the sixth.
They took an 8-4 lead into the bottom of the sixth, and that’s when the floodgates opened. The Loggers batted around and scored six runs on six hits against Jace Root (Santa Clara) to take a 10-8 lead. The Honkers had no response offensively as they end up losing 11-8.
Game two of the series is tomorrow night from Mayo Field. First pitch is set for 6:35 p.m.
