Legion Baseball: Kerkhoven edges NLS


KERKHOVEN -- Jessie Engler went hitless but had the key at bat as the Kerkhoven Cubs scored twice in the bottom of the seventh inning to catapult past the New London-Spicer Legion 3-2 on Thursday evening at Saints Field.

With the bases loaded and one out, Engler, who was 0-for-4 officially, sent a one-out dribbler down the first-base line.

Joe Buck, off on contact, scored standing up from third with the game-ending run.
