(ABC 6 News) — Saturday night was the final Northwoods League baseball game of the year for the Rochester Honkers.

After beating the Eau Claire Express at home Friday night, the Honkers went to the Express’ field to try for one last win. Things went well in the first inning after Rochester reached home plate first off Brendan O’Sullivan’s RBI single.

But in the third inning, the express came to life, Rochester’s initial 3-0 lead was cut to one run following Reed Latimer’s 2-run double. Things got worse from there as Eau Claire pulled away, only conceding a sac fly RBI in the seventh.

Ultimately, the Honkers ended their 2022 season with a 13-5 loss and finish with a 32-36 total record.
