Warriors' Gilbertson joins Border Cats

Ridgewater College right-handed pitcher James Gilbertson made his debut with the Thunder Bay Border Cats of the Northwoods League on Tuesday Night at Arthur Stadium.

Gilbertson retired the last two Duluth batters in the ninth inning in a 9-4 loss to the Eskimos.

Gilbertson, from Whitehall, Wis., signed a full contract. Pitcher Chris Braaten of Sunburg and outfielder Benji Hager of Owatonna previously played under 10-day contracts.

All three will be sophomores this fall at Ridgewater for coach Joel Barta, who also coaches the Border Cats.
