The season-long struggles continued for the Casper Horseheads on Thursday in a 5-2 loss to the Hastings Sodbusters in Hastings, Nebraska.
Casper starting pitcher Josh Overstreet allowed just two hits in five-plus innings, but walked seven and was touched for four earned runs.
The Horseheads (13-27)took a 2-0 lead in the second on a single by Nic Sandoval and Braden Rogers stealing home as part of a douoble-steal.
But the Sodbusters (17-25) scored five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning and got the win despite being held to three hits.
The Horseheads pounded out 10 hits, but also stranded nine runners on the base paths. Connor Lowrie, Collin Chaney, Rogers and Robert Cruz all had two hits for Casper.
The Horseheads have a three-game series at the Hub City Hotshots this weekend before returning home for a seven-game home stand.
