The Big Horn County Little League minors squads were back on the field Tuesday at the northeast complex in Lovell.

In game one, the visiting squad from Otto faced off against the home standing Braves, and the Braves prevailed 9-5 to improve to 4-1 on the season.

Although Otto struck first and went up 3-0 in the top of the first, the Braves answered back with four runs of their own to regain the lead.

Both teams went scoreless in the second inning before Otto regained the lead 5-4 heading into the bottom of the third when the Braves went on to win 9-5.

Patrick Jameson went 2.1 innings on the mound for the Braves and struck out seven batters, and James Henderson came in the final two outs of the game and got both outs via strikeout.

The Braves had individual hits throughout their lineup
from Patrick Jameson, Kali Jameson, Jace Jameson, Jamen Crosby, Kipp Winterholler and Luke Bischoff.

Game two

The Twins and Rays played one another in the late game on the minors field, and the Rays took the 11-7 win.

The Twins got hits from Thayne Walker, Spencer Walker and Kooper May.

The duo of Adam Hill and Logan Timpany combined on the mound for seven strikeouts and eleven walks for the Twins.

With the win, the Rays remain undefeated with an 8-0 record.
