BROKEN BOW--The Broken Bow Junior baseball team couldnâ€™t keep up with Holdrege and lost 18-4 in three innings at Paul Brown Field Saturday evening.
Holdrege was able to capitalize on Broken Bowâ€™s inability to throw strikes. Broken Bowâ€™s Preston Sanchez couldnâ€™t find the strike zone and walked five batters in the first inning and allowed six runs.
Jake McCormick replaced Sanchez and pitched into the second inning giving up five runs and walking four batters.
Bow finally succumbed in the third inning, allowing seven runs and the game was ended due to the mercy rule.
