In Humboldt’s 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.

Thursday’s 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.
