Express Sweep Series From Madison, 7-1 Monday Night

The Eau Claire Express got three hits each from Jonathan Merritt and Kole Calhoun while Express pitcher Eddie Gamboa picked up his first win of the summer, hurling seven-plus innings of 1-run, 7-strike out ball as Eau Claire improved to 3-and-1 to start the second half, and 20-18 overall. The Express take the next three days off for the 2007 Northwoods League all-star game in Mankato, returning to action Friday night when Eau Claire continues their six-game homestand with the first of two with the Duluth Huskies. Game time Friday at Carson Park is 7 pm.
