American Legion Cubs drop two to Belgrade

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

The road seems to always take a steep, sharp turn for the worse in Belgrade for the Dillon Cubs, as it did on Saturday, when the local American Legion baseball team dropped a doubleheader.

Using their patented small ball approach that can fluster a team of veterans, the Belgrade Bandits topped the Cuts 18-1 and 7-2.

The typically effective pitching staff for the Southern A district defending champs limited the Cubs to just a half-dozen hits in the two games in Belgrade.

The Cubs next play Saturday, May 14, with a 1 p.m. home doubleheader against the Missoula Fusion at Cubs Field in Ray Lynch Park.
