Legion drops two
The Princeton legion baseball team was swept by Zimmerman in a double header at home on June 25.
The team was shutout in both games as they faced solid pitching by the Thunder.
In game one of the double header, coach Jordan Neubauer was pleased with his team’s effort as they suffered a close loss. “We pitched well, battled and competed,” said Neubauer.
The opposing pitcher was able to limit Princeton to just three hits as he worked his way to a complete game shutout. “That was the best pitcher we have seen so far this season” stated Neubauer.
Game two was more of the same as Zimmerman was able pitch well as they pulled away in the later innings.
The losses move the team’s record to 6-6 overall.
The legion team will try to bounce back after a long break on July 9, as they face Big Lake at home.
