Express Fall To River Bats 4-1

The Eau Claire Express dropped to 12-and-12 on the season after a disappointing 4-to-1 loss to the St. Cloud River Bats Sunday evening at Carson Park. The Express committed five errors giving little support to starting pitcher Shane Dyer who gave four runs in a rough second inning defensively for Eau Claire. The Express trailed 4-nothing in the bottom of the 6th when Mike LaLuna connected for his second homerun of the season, a solo blast to left, but Eau Claire stranded eight baserunners. Next up for the Express, they begin a three-game road trip Tuesday night in Battle Creek.
