NWL Monday: Express 3, Border Cats 1

Thunder Bay (WQOW) — A late 2-run rally proved to be the difference, as the Eau Claire Express snapped their five-game losing streak with a 3-1 win over the Border Cats in Thunder Bay.

Just a day removed from going 5-for-5 at the plate in Duluth, Nic Ready broke a 1-1 tie in the top of the 9th inning with a deep sac fly to center field. Spencer Myers tagged and scored to give Eau Claire their second lead of the game. Tommy Gillman added some insurance a few pitches later, scoring on a wild pitch to give the Express a two run cushion heading into the bottom of the 9th. Jordan Wilson opened the scoring in the top of the 2nd, drawing a bases loaded walk.

Eau Claire’s record now stands at 2-5, with Thunder Bay falling to 2-6.  The Express will take on the Border Cats again, Tuesday, in a game scheduled to start at 9:05 p.m.
