Cubs downed by Stanley, 13-1

By Jody Michael
The Stanley Blue Jays scored multiple runs in three different innings en route to a 13-1 win over the Crosby Cubs in American Legion baseball action Monday evening in Crosby.
Stanley jumped ahead with four runs in the first inning. The Blue Jays blew the game open with seven runs in the third inning and went on to score a pair in the fourth en route to a 13-1 lead.
Jaime Boen took the loss on the hill for the Cubs (0-4) and fell to 0-2. He struck out three and walked four.
A pitch that hit Aidan Eriksmoen with the bases loaded in the bottom of the second got Crosby on the board, but the Blue Jays batted around in the third and pushed the margin to 13-1.
Tyler Harward, Tyler Deering, Isaac Ellingson, Alex Bailey, Bradon Peterson and Aidan and Evan Eriksmoen had one hit apiece for the Cubs.
Cubs drop pair in Bismarck
Crosby played a doubleheader on Thursday vs. Bismarck. The Capitals recorded 17-0 and 21-3 wins.
Bismarck dropped nine runs on Crosby in the bottom of the second inning in game one.
Boen and Evan and Aidan Eriksmoen led the team with one hit each.
Ellingson took the hill and the loss for Crosby.
Game two was also all Bismarck. A 10-0 lead was established after four full innings, but Crosby would break the shutout with three runs in the top of the fifth. Dylan Rose doubled in Boen and Evan Eriksmoen, and Harward scored on an error.
Boen struck out two in four innings of work. Bailey also saw action, striking out two in three innings.
Cubs fall in season opener
The Cubs dropped their season opener 25-3 to host Hazen in what was the program’s first game in two years.
Evan Eriksmoen got the start for Crosby and ran into trouble in the bottom of the second and third, however, when the Astros scored the first 14 runs of the contest. Eleven of those runs were earned.
Deering, who replaced Eriksmoen, allowed 11 more runs in one inning of work for Crosby. 
The Cubs were finally able to get on the scoreboard in the top of the third as Rose singled and scored Bailey, Deering and Harward to record the team’s first RBIs and cut the Astro lead to 14-3.
Hazen answered with 11 runs in the bottom of the fourth to increase its lead and make the final score 25-3.
Crosby played yesterday in Surrey and will be back in action Thursday at Garrison. The Cubs will return to Vournas Field on Tuesday at 4 p.m. against Hettinger.
