In front of a crowd just shy of 2,200 people, the La Crosse Loggers arrived home to Copeland Park prepared to capture their first win of the 2021 regular season.
To do so, they’d need to get a couple of clutch hits. Those hits came from Ronald Sweeny III and Kyle Casper, who’s two solo shots proved the difference in a 5-4 win over the Minnesota Mud Puppies. Sweeny’s home run in the third tied the game at 1, then after giving up three to the visitors in the sixth, La Crosse would score the winning run in the eighth on a sac fly from JT Reed to bring in Darrian Escobar-Winter.
With the win, La Crosse improves to 1-2 on the season with the series finale tonight at Copeland Park.
