Duluth, MN) — Last night’s extra inning affair lasted nearly five hours; thattime was nearly cut in half tonight at Wade Stadium thanks to solid pitching and defense from both teams.

Throwback night pitted the Duluth Huskies wearing Duluth Dukes gear against the Eau Claire Express, wearing Eau Claire Bears gear. In the end, the Huskies offense fell just short of the 9th inning comeback bid and fell 2-1.

Riley Sanderson was solid in his third start of the year, going through 6 2/3 innings and giving up two runs on seven hits. Kevin Folman finished the impressive outing with 2 1/3 scoreless innings of relief. The offense had a hard time figuring out Eau Claire pitcher Andy Davis, as the local product outof St. Scholastica went seven full and allowed only four hits.

Tomorrow is the start of a new series against the Alexandria Blue Anchors at Wade Stadium, with the first pitch set for 6:35pm.
