Despite picking up 12 hits, the Alexandria Blue Anchors were unable to drive home any of their base runners Tuesday in a 3-0 loss to Mankato in the season opener at Knute Nelson Ballpark.


Mankato scored a run in each of the first three innings to take an early 3-0 lead. It took Alexandria two innings to figure out MoonDogs starting pitcher Trevor Lubking, but after that they were able to get runners on base.
