The Renville County Muskrats hosted the Burlington Bulldogs for a Legion baseball game on Tuesday, June 16th at Lansford.

Renville County scored the first run of the game, when Isaac Undlin came home on a past ball by the Bulldogs pitcher in the bottom of the first inning. The score remained 1 to 0 in the Muskrats’ favor until the top of the third when Burlington scored their first two runs of the game to take the 2 to 1 lead. However, that lead was short-lived, as the Muskrats came back in the bottom of that inning to score another run of their own to tie things up at 2 all. Then in the top of the fifth inning, Burlington got their bats going and scored 4 runs to take a 6 to 2 lead, and then added another run in the top of the sixth for the 7 to 2 lead. The Muskrats then came up with 3 runs in the bottom of the sixth to cut the lead to just two, 7 to 5. But in the end, it was Burlington who handed the Muskrats their first loss of the season, as both teams would score a run in the seventh inning to make it an 8 to 6 game in favor of the Bulldogs.
