WAUSAU, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- Clearly there's no place like home. The Loggers wished they could click their heels an return to Copeland Park early after going 1-5 on their longest road trip of the season.
But that was only a movie. The reality was La Crosse had to weather one more game against the Wisconsin Woodchucks on Sunday afternoon.
The Loggers had a five run lead in the first, which included a three-run homer from Chris Keck. In the 9th, however, La Crosse trailed by that same margin.
Bobby Juan tried to rally the troops late. Juan reached on the base hit through the infield gap. Then a wild pitch to Steven Moen allowed Juan to trot over to second. The La Crosse native eventually got to third before Connor Teykl set him free with a short bouncer cutting the deficit down to four.
That would be as close as the Loggers get. La Crosse losing by a final of 11-7. They finished the road trip 1-6 and fall to 5-6 on the second half of the season.
