Winning the battle

Freeburg, Montrose get past Grand Junction

It was a battle between a pair of battlers on the mound.
In the end, Kyle Freeburg and Montrose got the best of Grand Junction with an 8-2 Southwestern League win on Monday at Canyon View Park.
Montrose (10-4, 3-3 SWL) took a 4-2 lead into the seventh inning and then put the game away with four runs. The big hit came off the bat of Jake Miller, who had a bases-clearing triple on a ball that scooted past the right fielder, who made a diving attempt at the ball.
Grand Junction right-hander Caleb Coleman went the distance, but three errors in the field and a couple of more minor miscues hurt the Tigers.
“He really battled but it’s tough to pitch when we have three, four, five errors game after game,” Grand Junction coach Donnie Alexander said.
Freeburg was solid if not spectacular for the Indians, with a complete-game seven-hitter with three strikeouts.
