The Spearfish Expedition League baseball team couldn’t continue its momentum from a victory over Hastings Wednesday night as it lost a late lead and eventually dropped a 6-5 decision to the Sodbusters Thursday night in Spearfish.
The Sasquatch started Thursday night’s scoring in the second inning when Brent Richey scored on an error and Jaxon Rosencranz drove in a run to take a 2-0 advantage.
After the Sodbusters put a run on the board in each of the next two innings, Spearfish had an answer as it regained the lead on a Grady Wright RBI single.
With the game tied at three runs apiece in the bottom of the sixth, the Sasquatch regained the lead once again on an RBI double from Wright and another RBI single from Rosencranz.
