The La Crosse Loggers picked up Wednesday where they left off Tuesday at Wade Stadium, pumping across four runs in the top of the first inning en route to an 8-3 victory and a Northwoods League sweep before 1,499 fans.

Donta Williams doubled twice and drove in a pair of runs for the Loggers, who at 8-1 have the best record in the league, plus a two-game lead over second-place Willmar in the North Division and a 2 1/2-game cushion on the Huskies.

After Duluth's Nicholas Sogard made it a 5-3 ballgame in the seventh via a two-run single that scored Justin Mitchell and Michael McCann, La Crosse responded with a three-run eighth to blow things open. The Loggers were coming off Tuesday's 10-inning 11-10 win in which they pounded out 16 hits.

The Huskies travel to St. Cloud today looking to extend their six-game winning streak over the Rox.
