Thunder Bay (WQOW) -- The Express offense started out hot, but fizzled late in the game, hitting into 5 double plays as Eau Claire falls to the Border Cats, 7-6.
After scoring the first 4 runs of the game, the Express looked to be in cruise control after Zach Ashford's RBI-double in the top of the 4th - Eau Claire led 6-2 at that point, but Thunder Bay responded in the bottom of the frame. Colton Thomas capped a 4-run frame for the Border Cats with an RBI-single to right, tying the game at 6-runs apiece. Thunder Bay took the lead in the 6th on Thomas' sac fly - the Express had one last chance to tie the game in the 9th, but Josh Norlin grounded out to end the game.
