Cubs still in search of second amateur baseball win

The Worthington Cubs amateur baseball team was on the road Sunday afternoon in Hadley and wound up getting thumped by the Buttermakers, 23-3.

The Cubs dropped to 1-8 in league play this season, with their lone win coming against Heron Lake. Against Hadley on Sunday, Blake Ahrenstroff paced the offense with a solo homer and double. The Buttermakers scored eight runs in the bottom of the first inning and kept the busy bats going forward to win the team’s seven-inning game.

Worthington’s game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Fairmont. The Cubs compete in the Gopher League, which is currently led by the Luverne Redbirds, who have a 7-1 record in league action. Hadley is 5-2, the Milroy Irish are 5-3, and the Pipestone A’s are 3-5, followed by Worthington.

In the First Nite League, meanwhile, the Jackson Bulls are 5-1 on the season thus far, with Fairmont and Windom right on their heels. The Martins have a league record of 7-2 and Windom is 5-2. Completing the remainder of the standings are the Lakefield Frogs at 3-7, the Fox Lake Foxes at 2-6 and the Heron Lake Lakers at 1-7.

Jackson and Luverne are scheduled to meet at 7:30 p.m. Friday in a key game at Luverne. The Bulls play another important contest standings-wise on Sunday when they host Windom at 2 p.m.
