Still hampered by injuries, the Monett American Legion baseball teams dropped a pair of game to Aurora last night at the Monett field.
Monett lost the first game, 8-1, and the night-cap, 9-4. Monett is 5-16 on the season.
"We had yet another injury last night when Colten Phillips was hit by a pitch," said Monett Manager Blaine Trout. "He was taken to the emergency room as a precaution but he is fine."
In the first game, Monett managed one run when Marcus McCaffrey had a pinch hit single and later scored on a passed ball.
Mitchel Gibson was the losing pitcher.
Aurora scored eight runs in the second inning of the second game to take control.
Monett got all four of its runs in the third inning, keyed by a double by Jake Smith.
Chris Trout had a pair of stolen bases in that game for Monett.
Doug Aldridge was the losing pitcher.
Monett is next in action this weekend in the Marcus O'Hara Wood Bat Tournament at Monett. After a bye today, Monett will take the field at 10 a.m. tomorrow against the winner of today's game between Aurora and East Newton.
If Monett wins the 10 a.m. game, the local Legion team will play again at 8 p.m. tomorrow. If Monett loses the Saturday morning game, Monett will play at 2 p.m. tomorrow.
