The Battle Creek Bombers were down early and had no answers for the La Crosse Loggers Wednesday night. The Loggers would score six in the first and seven more in the third to double up the Bombers 14-7 in the first of two games at Copeland Park.

Cayce Bredlau (Austin Peay) and Tyler Walsh (Belmont) each had two hits and drove in two runs. Walsh would launch his second homer of the season in the losing effort.

Fred Manke (Minnesota) would get his first start of the season and was roughed up for six runs in just a third of an inning to take the loss on the mound. He's 0-1 on the year.

The second game of the series is tonight in Wisconsin. Cameron Ming's (Arizona, 1-2) start was pushed back to tonight for the Bombers, while the Loggers will Brandon Lawson (South Florida, 0-0) will get the nod. First pitch at "The Cope" is at 8:05pm.
