Loggers hang tough to win home opener over Dock Spiders

After months of uncertainty, live Loggers baseball finally returned to La Crosse, and the team’s 2020 home opener did not disappoint.

The Loggers improved to 3-0 on the season with a 7-6 nail-biting win over the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders.

The Loggers withstood several big innings from the Dock Spiders by answering with big innings of their own, including a third-inning grand slam from outfielder Trey Harris.

Fond du Lac got the tying and go-ahead runs in scoring position in the ninth, but Loggers pitcher Kyle Amendt stranded them to end the game.

The Loggers host the Dock Spiders Saturday at 6:05 p.m.
