Bear alert

Jared "Bear" Alexander on the mound.

As happened all too often this year, it rained on the Apple Jacks. This time, it happened on Saturday afternoon in La Crescent during Applefest.

The Apple Jacks played a doubleheader. The first game was very wet with the Jacks outscoring the Fillmore Fungi 8-4.

It cleared up a bit for the game with the Roosters, but the results were not as good with Rochester rallying in the ninth to take the game 7-5.

The Jacks ended the season outscoring their opponents five times. They trailed by one or two aces four times.
