Express take over first with win

Ryan Zimmerman threw seven scoreless innings to propel the Eau Claire Express to a 2-0 win over the St. Cloud Rox in Northwoods League action Friday night in St. Cloud, Minn.

The Express (23-11, 38-32) took a one-game lead over Mankato, a 10-0 loser to Bismarck on Friday, for the top spot in the second-half North Division standings. 

The Express, who hold a two-game lead over Willmar and hold the tiebreaker over both Mankato and Willmar, can wrap up the the second-half title and clinch a playoff spot with a win today or Sunday at home against St. Cloud.

Zimmerman struck out six and walked two. Kenny Ogg gave up one hit in two scoreless innings to pick up the save. 

The Express managed just four hits, one of which was a two-out RBI single by Luke Bandy in the eighth inning. 

Eau Claire’s first run came in the second when Adam LaRock and Devon Garcia both singled to put runners at the corners. LaRock then stole home when Garcia stole second.

The Express have now won 17 of their last 21 games.
