The Blue Anchors had eight hits but were able to push just the two runs across. Aaron Gretz had three hits, including a double, to go along with a run scored and an RBI. Roman Collins added a single and a triple, while driving in the other run.

The Anchors came close to earning their second win of the season in a 3-2 loss in the series opener against Eau Claire on Monday.

Alexandria held a 2-1 lead that night in the seventh inning, but the Express answered with two in the bottom of the seventh. Eau Claire didn’t relinquish that lead as Miles Nablo closed things out for his team by pitching a perfect final two innings for the save.

Alexandria had just four hits in the game, with two of those coming from Kris Goodman. Ryan Busch and Gretz each added a hit and a run scored.
