Amateur baseball roundup (July 1): Express drop fourth straight

Michael Farnell’s three-run homer in the seventh inning was all the offense the Bismarck Larks needed in a 3-2 win over the Eau Claire Express on Sunday afternoon in at Bismarck Municipal Park.

The loss was the fourth straight for the Express, who were clinging to a 1-0 lead after Ryan Bishop’s sacrifice fly scored Cody Milligan in the fourth.

Jimmy Glowenke doubled to open the eighth inning and scored on a groundout to cut the lead to a run, but that was as close as Eau Claire would get.

Starter Justin Slaten threw five scoreless innings for the Express, working around five walks and three hits. Jeff Lindgren threw 7q innings to get the win for the Larks.

Eau Claire heads to Willmar to start a two-game set tonight.

— The Osseo Merchants’ Ryan Freitag had a pair of hits to take home MVP honors and help the South beat the North 8-3 in the CRBL All-Star Game in Whitehall. Whitehall’s Alex Byom threw four innings and struck out five get the win, while Beef River’s Kyle Balash also contributed a pair of hits.

— Jaxon Kostka went 4-for-4 with three doubles and four RBIs to lead the Eau Claire Pizza Hut Post 53 19U Legion team to a 15-1 win over Prescott in its final game at the Chippewa Falls Wood Bat Challenge at Casper Park. Jaelin Williams and Joe Feck both had three RBIs for Eau Claire, which took second to the hosts at the three-day tournament. Chippewa Falls Post 77 beat Oconomowoc 15-2 to finish 4-0. Eau Claire beat Chippewa Falls 5-3 to win the 17U division at the tournament.
