The Cannon Falls VFW baseball team had only one game last week, a 1-0 loss last Wednesday, July 2.
Cannon played great defense until the 7th inning, when Northfield scored its only run.
Tanner Carlson was the tough-luck loser. He went 6-2/3 innings, giving up one unearned run and five hits.
Carlson had two hits, as did Jason Traynor. Hayden Strain had one hit.
"It was a great game," commented coach Bucky Lindow. "We played great defense until the last inning; in this league you need to be nearly perfect on defense. We had runners on nearly every inning, but only once put a runner on 3rd base."
Cannon was at Janesville on Tuesday. They host Winona at Frank Hawks Field at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, go to Stewartville for an 11 a.m. game on Saturday, and host Albert Lea at 5 p.m. at Frank Hawks Field on Monday, July 14.
