The Chadron Seniors (0-5) are still looking for that elusive first win of the American Legion Baseball season, but they're getting closer after a 10-6 defeat to Gering Tuesday night.

Caden Buskirk launched a a home run and Logan Slama tripled but it was not enough to overcome Gering, which scored three times in the seventh inning to open up a 7-5 game into a 10-5 lead before Chadron's threat in the final half was halted.

Broc Berry threw six innings for Post 12 on the mound and allowed seven Chadron hits. Just six of Gering's runs were earned, and Berry struck out seven.

Chadron's junior squad beat Gering 8-0 and improve to 4-2 in the early summer.  

Both Chadron teams are in action tonight (Wednesday) at Bridgeport.
