In Humboldts first six games, the Cubs outscored their opponents 112-15. The closest any of those six games ended up being was a 10-point win over Neodesha in the season opener.
So it stands to reason that eventually, someone would finally land a punch on the Cubs and then, for really the first time this season, they would have to punch back.
Thursdays home series versus Fredonia which was originally scheduled to be a home game for the Yellowjackets before rained forced the move to the Cubs turf fields provided just the area for Humboldt to show their resilience. The Cubs jumped out early then got stagnant in a 10-2 win in game one before having to tough out a 3-2 win in game two to stay undefeated and get the sweep.
