BISMARCK - What started as a 10-game road trip for the Dickinson Roughriders ended up being just seven, as three games were canceled due to weather over the last week and a half, but the trip came to an end Wednesday with a 12-1 loss to the Bismarck Governors.
Dickinson got on the board in the fifth after Michael McChesney drew a walk with the bases loaded to score Sam England. That cut Bismarck’s lead to 8-1 at the time, but it’s all the Roughriders would manage.
Bismarck took a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning after Logan Morse doubled to drive in Luke Leingang. Morse ended up scoring on Dickinson’s first of three errors in the game.
The Governors added six runs in the fourth, a stretch that included an error with the bases loaded, a sacrifice fly, a walk to reload the bases, a hit by pitch to drive in a run and bases-clearing double by Leingang.
After a Jaxon Ford sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fifth to make it 9-1 for Bismarck, the Governors drew another walk to load the bases, and Leingang cleared them again with another double.
In a game that was scheduled to go nine innings, Bismarck ended things early thanks in large part to Leingang, who finished 3 for 4 with two doubles, six RBI and a run scored. Ian McDonald earned the win for the Governors after allowing just the one run on seven hits in five innings of work. He struck out two and walked two.
Kendall Jones took the loss for Dickinson after he allowed the first eight runs - though none were earned - on four hits and five walks in 3 2/3 innings. England followed on the mound and pitched the next 1 1/3 innings, giving up four runs - all earned - on three hits. Treven Hopfauf finished the game by pitching a scoreless inning, allowing just one hit.
England, Tanner Ouellette and Eli Jung all had two hits for the Roughriders, and McChesney and Cam Jorda each added single hits.
The Roughriders return home to finish the regular season with a doubleheader against Mandan starting at 5:30 p.m. today at Southside Ballpark and Astoria Field.
