CUBA CITY – The Cuba City baseball team took to the diamond four times in a five day span last week and fell to in all hard-fought contests to slip to 2-6 in SWAL play and 3-12 overall on the season.

The Cubans began their week with a 5-1 non-conference loss at Lancaster on Monday, May 2, and then dropped a home-and-away series against Riverdale falling to the Chieftains, 3-2, at home on Tuesday, May 3, and getting blanked, 4-0, at Muscoda on Thursday, May 5.

Finally, back at home on Friday, May 6, the Cubans gave SWAL-leading Darlington all they could handle until a three-run rally by the visiting Redbirds in the fifth inning sent them to a 6-2 victory at the newly refurbished Kendall Murray Field.

Trailing 2-0 to ‘Birds in Friday’s game, the Cubans rallied to tie the game a 2-2 with single runs in the third and fourth innings. Kyle Bass walked and scored on a error to put the hosts on the board, and Dylan Timmerman walked and scored on an error in the fourth to deadlock the game.

Darlington got RBI-doubles from Tyler Osterday and Hayden Hardyman in the top of the fifth to put them back on top to stay.

Sean McVay went 2-for-2 with a pair of singles for Cuba City in Friday’s game.

Cuba City hosts Southwestern on Friday, May 13 (4:30 p.m.); and they have road games at Richland Center on Monday, May 16 (5 p.m.), and at Fennimore on Tuesday, May 17 (4:30 p.m.).
