March 15, 2007 12:00 am

The Del Norte High junior varsity baseball team lost 5-4 in extra innings on the road at Brookings on Wednesday. Head coach John Valdez said the main culprit for the loss was too many fielding errors. "That killed us today," he said. Starting pitcher Nate Bruder pitched four strong innings and Michael Young hit a two-run double for Del Norte. The Warriors are 1-3 for the season. The team next plays a doubleheader against Brandon, Ore., on Saturday. Originally scheduled to be played on the road, the game was recently moved to Crescent City. The first game begins at noon.
