HINTON -- The Hinton baseball team lost 10-3 to Sergeant Bluff-Luton on Monday in Hinton.

The Blackhawks (6-7) led 2-1 after two innings before the Warriors (15-4) scored four unearned runs in the third inning. They added three runs in the fourth inning, one in fifth and one in the sixth.

Hinton out-hit the Warriors 8-6, but walks and errors cost the Blackhawks.

"It was one of those games where you feel like you're right there," Hinton coach Steve Diediker said. "We gave up five unearned runs. Our staff gave up seven walks and two hit batters. That's going to make it tough to win many ball games when you do that. It seemed like we were right on the edge of taking the game over, but it just didn't happen."

Nolan Field led the offense with three singles, and he scored two of the Blackhwaks three runs.

Corey Peters pitched the first three innings. He gave up five runs, all unearned, on two hits and four walks.

Dalton Becker pitched the next three innings, surrendering five runs on four hits and two walks. He struck out two. Cole Siders allowed no runs on no hits in the seventh.

Hinton will play again Wednesay at Spalding Catholic.
