PLUM CITY - Fate was not kind to the Elmwood Expos amateur baseball team this past weekend.

The Expos suffered two late-inning losses by a single run, on Sunday to Prescott and on Saturday at Plum City 9-8 at Legion Park.

Kris Krueger's grand slam homer in the bottom of the eighth turned around a 8-5 Elmwood into a one-run advantage for the Blues they held onto in the top of the ninth.

Krueger, Brice Pelzel and Jake Hurlburt all had two hits for PC. Zach Watkins crushed a two-run homer for Plum City.  Logan Wolf and Danny Ginal both had two hits for Elmwood. Ginal hit a double drove in four runs while teammate Cody Holden and Brett Keys both had two RBIs. Wolf and Adam Churchill both had three stolen bases.

Plum City's bats weren't as active against Hudson Sunday at Legion Park. The River Rats held on for a 1-0 win. Winning pitcher Paul Johnson held the Blues to just four hits while striking out eight. Kellen Pearson's solo home run 315-feet into left field was the lone run of the ballgame. Hudson won despite giving up 14 strikeouts to Plum City pitcher Tony Garner. Kevin Anderson hit a double for PC.

Also last weekend, Ellsworth bounced back from a loss to Prescott Saturday with a 7-2 win at St. Croix Falls Sunday. Bay City went north to face St. Croix Falls and Osceola with the Bombers beating SCF 9-5 while losing Sunday at Osceola 5-4. Spring Valley was beaten at home by Menomonie Sunday 12-4.
