SPEARFISH — The Spearfish Sasquatch defeated the Hub City Hotshots 10-2 in Saturday's Expedition League baseball opener at Black Hills Energy Stadium, in Spearfish.

The Sasquatch scored in each of the first four innings to open a 9-2 advantage. Z Westley's two-run single highlighted a three-run second, and he added a solo home run in the fourth.

Jaxon Rosencranz turned in a two-run, three-hit effort for Spearfish. Beaux Escobar added two runs and two hits.

McLemore said the pitchers threw strikes, and the defense committed no errors on the night. Starter Joe Lewis earned the win.

Parker Borg scored one run and added two hits for Hub City. Grant Farmer was tagged with the pitching loss.

Spearfish (1-0) will host Hub City at 1:35 p.m. today.
