The Albion Cornerstone Legion Juniors began a busy week with their first loss of the 2014 American Legion baseball season.
That didn’t derail the local nine for long, however.
Cornerstone bounced back with two road wins, improving to 5-1 after the initial two weeks of the summer season.
The Cornerstone Juniors were scheduled to host St. Paul Tuesday and travel to Seward Thursday in a lighter slate of action this week.
