Eau Claire (WQOW) -- The Express rallied from a 4-0 deficit Saturday at Carson Park, but it's not quite enough, as Eau Claire dropped its fourth straight Northwoods League game.
After being shut out on one hit, Thursday, and being held to 4 hits while striking out 18 times on Friday, the Express offense continued its gradual improvement. Eau Claire knocked out six hits against two Duluth pitchers while striking out seven times. Nic Ready knocked in a pair of runs with a 6th inning single, while David LaManna delivered an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth.
Eau Claire's record now stands at 1-4, with Duluth improving to 2-3. The Express will visit the Huskies, Sunday, in a game scheduled to start at 3:05 P.M.
