Thunder Bay (WQOW) — The Express lost their second straight game Friday night in Thunder Bay, falling to the Border Cats in a shoot-out 13-11.

Eau Claire got on the board in the first inning, when Nick Brueser doubled in Andrew Pratt followed by an RBI single from David LaManna to make it 2-0. After Thunder Bay cut it to one in the bottom half, the Express answered with four runs in the second inning. A Mitchell Buban two-RBI single, Spencer Myers reaching on an error, and Noah Sifrit RBI single put Eau Claire on top 6-1. However, the Border Cats answered with five runs of their own in the bottom half, to tie the game up 6-6. The Express once again took the lead in the fourth, when Pratt drove in Sifrit with a single and also a LaManna RBI single making it 8-6. Then in the fifth after Thunder Bay cut the deficit to one, Myers drove in Devon Garcia on an RBI single to go back up by a pair. However, the damage was done in the bottom half as the Border Cats plated four to go ahead for good.
