EMMONS &045; After a weekend in which it struggled offensively, the Glenville-Emmons American Legion baseball team had trouble in the field Tuesday night, committing six errors in a 12-2 loss to Blooming Prairie at Emmons.
Mitch Meier, who was 10-1 this spring for the G-E High School team, suffered his second loss of the season. He started and went three innings on the mound, giving up five runs on seven hits, walking none and striking out three. Two of the runs were unearned.
Jake Hansen pitched the next three innings and was reached for five runs &045; three earned &045; on five hits. He walked one and struck out one. Robert Flugum pitched the seventh and gave up two runs on three hits, with one walk and one strikeout; one of the runs was earned.

&uot;Obviously, the six errors and several other plays we didn’t make in the field didn’t help or pitchers any,&uot; said Glenville-Emmons coach Louie Toulouse. &uot;That was the story of the ballgame. We just didn’t field well and gave them too many chances to score.&uot;
Meier was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate but only two other G-E players had hits, Matt Learn and Nathan Cooper.
The loss dropped G-E’s record to 3-4. The team hosts New Richland Friday at 7 p.m., plays Saturday at 1 p.m. at Hayfield and travels to face the Austin VFW in a doubleheader Sunday at 6 p.m.
