  • Errors helped compound a huge inning for the Monett Cubs on Tuesday, as they scored seven times in the second to upend Seneca, 11-7, in a Big 8 Conference varsity baseball game.
    The Indians grabbed a 1-0 lead in the top of the first, but the Cubs answered with one in the bottom of the inning to tie it before going on a tear in the second to make it 8-1.
    Though they’d felt punched in the gut, the Indians weren’t giving up. They scored two in the third and four in the fourth on a grand slam by Payton Rawlins to pull within 8-7, but the Cubs would answer with three unearned runs in the bottom of the sixth to put it away.
    Rawlins led the team offensively with five RBIs. Dalan Merriman had two hits and scored three runs. Brayden Larson and Jesse Rhoades each had two hits, while Jacob Walker and Jacob Brubaker both had a hit.
    Rawlins worked the first two innings on the mound for the Indians, striking out three. Brubaker pitched the final four and didn’t allow an earned run while striking out two.
    The Indians fell to 9-13 overall, 1-5 in the Big 8. They entertain Cassville at 4:30 p.m. today in a makeup game of an earlier postponement. Today’s game will also serve as senior night for the Indians.
    Monett won the B game, 6-1.
