Brad Allen (Elgin CC) relieved Winiarski in the seventh and went on to give up one run in his two innings of work, while striking out two. Dan Burawa (St. John's) then entered the ballgame in the ninth inning looking for his third save of the year, and did just that, striking out two Loggers' as well to preserve the victory.
Munson picked up the loss (1-1) for La Crosse by allowing all four runs on six hits over seven innings.
These same two teams will battle again Wednesday in a 7:05 p.m. matchup at Copeland Park.
