Woodchucks rally late, lose in extras to Express

Posted:
WAUSAU (PRESS RELEASE) -

The Wisconsin Woodchucks came back to tie the Eau Claire Express in the bottom of the ninth inning but lost in ten innings, 5-3. This was the Woodchucks' sixth straight loss.

The Express took the lead in the top of the tenth inning when they loaded the bases and Zier would come into score after a ground ball would deflect off Woodchucks' pitcher Jackson Lowery's glove giving the Express a 4-3 lead. They would get an insurance run when Parker Zimmerman would draw a bases loaded walk to allow Chane Lynch to come into score giving the Express a 5-3 advantage which would be the difference for the night.

The Woodchucks will travel to Wisconsin Rapids for the resumption of their June 15 game that was postponed due to rain as the first part of a double header tomorrow night. The second game will only be a seven inning game after the conclusion of the first game. First pitch is scheduled for 4:35

Rafters right handed pitcher, Justin Peters, threw six and two-thirds strong innings and didn't issue a walk, but the Rafters bullpen combined to toss five free passes in the final two frames that led to six Loggers run.
