Blue Anchors lose Saturday heading into season finale

The Alexandria Blue Anchors (12-25) dropped their second to last game of the season on Saturday in a 14-2 loss to Rochester.

The Honkers blew the game open late with four runs in the seventh and five more in the ninth. Rochester finished the game with 13 hits and were aided by three Alexandria errors that led to six unearned runs in the game.

Kris Goodman and Nehwon Norkey each had two hits in the game for the Blue Anchors.

Alexandria is scheduled to finish up the season today, Sunday, with a 1:05 p.m. first pitch against Rochester at Knute Nelson Ballpark if the two teams can get the game in around the rain that was coming down around noon.
