Wins on the home diamonds
The B-B-E Jaguars fastpitch team picked up their first win of the season by a 6-2 score over visiting Swanville on Friday. They're now 1-10 overall heading into a home Central Minnesota Conferendce doubleheader against Kimball Area (6-2, 4-1 CMC) on Monday that begins at 4 p.m.
I missed on reporting these scores on Thursday night. The Jaguars fastpitch team traveled to Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted for a CMC doubleheader. HL-W-W swept the series with 11-3 and 15-4 (5 innings) wins.
Here's video from the end of the fastpitch game on Friday:
At Elrosa, the B-B-E Jaguars baseball team won the first game of a CMC doubleheader by a 4-0 score over Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted. In game two, the Jaguars led 6-0 through three-and-a-half innings before the Lakers scored three runs in the bottom of the fourth. It ended up being the only inning of the whole night that HL-W-W put points on the scoreboard at Saints Field, as B-B-E won the nightcap by an 8-3 score to improve to 6-1 overall this season. B-B-E's defense allowed just seven hits across both games.
The Jaguars are 5-1 in the CMC and have an important rematch with Paynesville Area next Monday on the road. Since handing the Jaguars their only loss of the season by a 7-2 score, the Bulldogs have gone 3-4 and stand at 3-3 (fourth) in the CMC. B-B-E is in third place in the CMC behind Maple Lake and Pierz, who are both still unbeaten in the CMC at 6-0 and 5-0, respectively.
