Cubs rout Red Sox, 15-3
In a game that offered an unusual or even astounding play almost every inning, the Dillon Cubs offered no mercy to the visiting Bitteroot Red Sox B team on the opening day of the annual Maybelle Arthur Tournament at Cubs Can-Am Field in Dillon.

Pete Gibson led off the Cubs first by blasting a home run over the left field fence to start a Dillon offensive onslaught that led to a 15-3 win in a game shortened to four and a half innings by the mercy rule.

Nick Huber went the distance for Dillon on the mound.
