Rox Fall Short in Eau Claire

Eau Claire, WI-

Facing the Eau Claire Express for the first time this season, the Rox dropped game number one of the two game road trip by a final score of 5-1.

The Rox started the scoring in the top of the 2nd inning, when Liam Bedford (Doane College) scored on a RBI single by Webb Bobo (SE Louisiana) to give the Rox a 1-0 lead. Bedford reached first to lead off the second inning after he was struck by a breaking ball in the forearm.

From there, the Rox held the lead until the bottom of the fourth, when a bases clearing triple by Joe Gilette of the Express pushed the Eau Claire lead to 3-1. 

Aside from the double, Andrew Clemen (SDSU) was fantastic on the mound for St. Cloud. Clemen tallied 6 K's through 6 2/3 IP, while allowing just three hits before being pulled in the 7th inning. 

St. Cloud actually outhit the Express in the game 8-5, but timely hits by the Express doomed the Rox as they fell by a final score of 5-1.

Connor Crane (Mcneese St.) paced the Rox offense, as he finished the game 2-4 to raise his batting average to .286.
