Eau Claire (WQOW) -- The slide continues for the Express, which loses for the 16th time in the last 20 games, as Battle Creek beats Eau Claire, 7-1, in front of an announced crowd of 2,173 at Carson Park.
Express starter Tony Vocca gives up a pair of first-inning runs as the Bombers build a lead that they'd never relinquish.
Eau Claire is blanked on no hits through three innings by Battle Creek starter Joe Battistelli, but Ty Forney breaks up the no-hitter and later scores on a Josh Scheffert single. The Express goes on to load the bases with one out, but Jimmy Young bounces into a 5-3 inning-ending double play.
"We can't seem to catch a break right now," says Scheffert, "but I don't think we really deserve to catch a break. You kind of have to earn those types of things, you know they've earned them, so they got their breaks tonight, hopefully tomorrow we can earn ours."
