SUTTER 8, BEAR RIVER 3
The Bruins fell behind early on and never recovered on the road against non-league foe Sutter Tuesday.
The Huskies jumped on the Bruins with three runs in the second inning, another four in the third inning and adding an insurance run in the sixth. Bear River responded with two runs in the fourth, but would only add one more run the rest of the way.

In all Bear River had six hits and gave up seven to the Huskies, but five errors hurt them. Of Sutter's eight runs, four were earned.
Bear River is now 0-7 in non-league play. The Bruins will now gear up for their first Pioneer Valley League game of the season Thursday at home against Center.
