Cornerstone Drops Pair, Junior Blues at Home Tonight

The Cornerstone Insurance Group Columbus Seniors were held to a single run in each of two home losses to Grand Island Home Federal last night.  Cornerstone dropped the opener 6-1 and fell 2-1 in the nightcap. 

The Seniors collected eight hits in the first game, including two apiece off the bats of Tanner Kobza, Kaden Young and Sam Kwapnioski.  But, the Seniors didn’t score until their last at-bat in the seventh, when Kwapnioski’s second double of the contest drove in their lone run. 

Columbus starter Colin Flyr was the tough-luck loser in the nightcap, as he pitched a seven-inning complete game. Flyr allowed two runs on three hits, walking one and striking out four. 

He only had one hit of offensive support – a seventh inning home run by Young.  The Columbus Seniors fell to 3-5.  They’ll visit Hastings Thursday for a doubleheader. 

Meantime, the Columbus United Federal Credit Union Junior Blues will take a 2-4 record into a home twinbill this evening against South Sioux City.  First pitch of the opener at Pawnee Park Field is set for 5 p.m.
