The Monett Cubs (6-3) picked up a needed win on Thursday, defeating Lamar 13-3 in the Carthage Tournament.
Monett scored two runs in the first inning, and single runs in the third and fourth innings.
The Cubs' offense exploded with five runs in the fifth and four more in the sixth to inflict the mercy rule.
"I saw some very encouraging achievements today," said Monett Head Coach Michael Calhoun. "Defensively, we played well and didn't commit any errors. Andy Hagedorn looked solid on the mound. Offensively, it took us awhile to get going, but once we got our timing, we were able to surge ahead for the win."
Hagedorn picked up the win for the Cubs. He threw five innings, allowed three hits and struck out seven.
Doug Aldridge went three for four with three runs scored. Marcus Enloe was two for four with a homerun and two RBIs. Jake Smith finished two for three with two RBIs.
The Cubs will be in action today at 4:30 p.m. at Carthage against Mt. Vernon. The Cubs will play their final game in the Carthage Tournament tomorrow at 10 a.m. Their opponent is yet to be determined.
