What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Pa\e A-11 High and tight Dillon's Cory Birkenbuel avoids a pilch by Deer Lodge Wrangler hurler Ray Peterson during Sunday's double-header home opener in Dillon The Cubs won three games and lost one for the weekend J P Piufl phtoio The American Legion base ball Dillon Cubs are off to a .1-1 nonconference start following a pair of double-headers over the weekend. The Cubbies opened the season Saturday m Three Forks with a sweep of the Gall atin Valley Outlaws. Sunday in Dillon, Deer Lodge earned a rare win over Dillon to gam a split of a twin-bill. At Three Forks, Dillon ace Danny Podunovich went the seven inning distance in the opener for a 12-6 win. He fanned 13 batters while walk- ingjust five and allowed six hits. The Outlaws scored four runs in the first inning when Podunovich allowed four of his walks, shortstop .Josh Allen booted a ball and Derrick Flikkema stroked a single bat ting in the nine hole. Podunovich then settled down to turn in a solid performance. Dillon rocked Outlaw pitch ing for 13 hits. Zane Gibbons, Kevin Duggan, Mike Rooley and Brett Maki all rapped two hits. Gibbons collected a double and a triple. Chris Metcalfe posted the 3- 1 win in the closer with a five inning performance that limited Gallatin to three hits. Mark Stonebreaker allowed just one hit in two innings of relief work to pick up the save. The game was scoreless un til the top of Dillon’s order ral lied with two out in the fifth inning. Maki and Podunovich stung consecutive doubles and Gibbons walked. Rooley rapped a two-run double to end Dillon’s 'Coring. Dillon managed m-t three other hits. Sunday in Dillon, the ( ub> played a double with the D c -r Lodge W ranglers and tried to give the opener away Dillon com m itted 10 error.' for tín game leading to m o d of the W rang le r’s runs, but Dillon overcome the defensive lapses with a late inning dinger from Bret Maki. ‘ In the first game we had nine or ten errors,\ said Dillon skipper Gail Whitworth. “That's inexcusable. I don’t really have an answer as to why that hap pened. We just didn’t get it done.” Dillon led 7-6 when Metcalfe took the mound at the top of the seventh. Metcalfe walked the first batter then retired the next two on strikes. A single moved the base runner to third and then he scored on a balk to tie the game, 7-7. Metcalfe struck out the next Wrangler to end the half inning. With one out in the bottom half ofthe inning Josh Allen hit a single and then Maki took the next pitch out of the yard to give Dillon a 9-7 win. Aaron Tash, a sixteen-vear- old first-year Cub, started the opener on the mound. Whitworth liked what he saw. “Aaron Tash did an outstand ing job. He didn’t get any sup port really,” said Whitworth. “Like I mentioned, we had some errors but the kid just threw the ball really well. He will be one of our starting pitchers through the regular season.” Deer Lodge sent Ray Peterson, their ace, to the mound in the weekend finale. Whitworth on the other hand worked four hurlers in the seven inning game. In addition, a lot of rookies got some time in the field. “I tired a lot of different guys that we really haven’t seen, some of the younger players and so fourth,” said Whitworth. ‘That’s not an excuse. I just wanted to see what they could do.” Dillon actually out-hit Deer Lodge with 8 raps to the Wran glers five. But Deer Lodge got the most out of their hits, whacking three homers, a double and a single for nine runs. Dillon managed just two runs in their first defeat of the year. “We’re just looking forward to a good season,” said the Dil lon manager. “I think this is going to be a better ball club than we had last year. Last year we did win the league and then came up one game short. We didn’t make the state tour nament for the first time in six years. I think we have some thing to prove.” See “By the Numbers” for box scores. Lö s ? u â f ô a m n i s x s B S Area sports statistics at a glance i i ì i Í } U p c o m in g S p o rtin g E v e n ts...
