The Arlington Legion baseball teams split two games with Pender on Thursday evening at the Washington County Fairgrounds.

Coach Ed Menking's Seniors squad bested their visitors 3-1, while the Juniors took a 5-2 loss.

The Eagle Seniors scored two runs during the bottom of the sixth inning to pull out their win. Cooper Hilgenkamp provided the big hit, singling against a drawn-in infield, Menking said.

“Good game,” the coach added.

The Arlington Juniors, meanwhile, fell just short. They loaded the bases during the seventh inning, but were unable to come up with the big hit during the three-run loss.
