The Eau Claire Express managed just six hits and dropped their second straight game Sunday in a 5-1 loss to the Waterloo Bucks at Riverfront Stadium in Waterloo, Iowa.

After the start of the game was delayed by more than an hour and a half by rain, Jared Mang gave the Express a 1-0 lead in the first with an RBI double. But Ryan Hamilton gave up three unearned runs in the third and a two-run home run by Brody Weiss in the fourth for the Bucks.
