The Culbertson Oilers finished the 2014 Babe Ruth baseball season at the Hi-Line District Tournament Friday through Sunday, June 20-22, at Burke Field in Wolf Point.
The six-team, double-elimination tournament included Culbertson and teams from Wolf Point, Scobey, Plentywood and two from Glasgow.
Scobey beat Plentywood 13-3 in the championship game for the title.
Culbertson lost to Plentywood 10-9 Friday, in a game where the Oilers had led early in the game and lost in the seventh inning, and to Glasgow Coke 13-3 in the losers bracket.
“We struggled with pitching and too many errors,” Culbertson head coach Gordon Oelkers said.
“We’re a young team,” he said.
“[This season is] the first time we have had Babe Ruth in three years. It was a learning experience for the kids,” Oelkers said.
“On every level, it comes down to pitching,” he said.
Culbertson finishes the season with four 15-year-olds, who will be ineligible to play next year due to age limits.
