Cubs defeated by Bottineau

By Jody Michael
Crosby’s American Legion baseball team could not slow down non-region foe Bottineau in two defeats Wednesday last week, 15-0 and 15-3, at Vournas Field.
The Cubs struggled to get all the way around the bases, while Bottineau outhit Crosby 28-6 and was the beneficiary of 12 Cub errors.
Evan Eriksmoen held the guests to three runs in the first four innings of game one before they tacked on 12 runs in the next two frames.
Isaac Ellingson and Alex Bailey shared pitching duties in the second game.
Bailey and Bradon Peterson had a hit in both contests and hold the team’s longest current hitting streaks at four games.
Aidan Eriksmoen and Grant Kocher notched the other hits for Crosby.
Kocher singled home Bailey for the Cubs’ first run, in the second inning of game two.
Bailey and Dejuan Jenkins drew bases-loaded walks with nobody out in the following inning to plate Aidan and Evan Eriksmoen, respectively, but Bottineau then escaped without allowing further damage.
The Cubs’ next three opponents neighbor them in the standings. Crosby meets Hettinger on Tuesday in Watford City, hosts Garrison on Thursday at 5 p.m. and visits Stanley on Tuesday next week.
