BISMARCK - The Minot Metros lost both of their Junior American Legion baseball games Saturday in a Bismarck tournament.
Minot (4-4) was on the ugly end of a lopsided 16-3 affair with Hazen early in the day. Metros' pitcher Chandler Jacob helped his team in game two, allowing just five hits, but Bismarck scored in the bottom of the seventh inning for a 1-0 win.
"Chandler was a warrior," Minot coach Travis Smith said. "He leads the charge on the hill for us and today it was no exception. He was great on the hill, but we didn't provide him with any run support. He deserved the win."
Minot nearly took the lead in the top of the inning, but a Metro was thrown out at the plate.
Jacob was 2-for-4 at the plate with a double.
"We were pleased with the second game - the last game of the tournament. We thought the guys battled really hard, but we left too many guys on."
Austin Eggl was tagged with the loss in the first game and Hazen's Collin Maas earned the win. Minot finished the two-day tournament 1-3.
