DAILY GLOBE

HERON LAKE -- As if Minnesotans don’t already know how fleeting summers can seem, the Worthington Cubs will have their final home game of the 2016 regular season on Wednesday.

It should be a good one, though. The 7:30 p.m. contest will match league leaders. The visiting Milroy Irish are the leaders of the Gopher League. Worthington, meanwhile, is in first place in the First Nite League.

The Cubs prepared for their Wednesday showdown on Saturday with a 4-0 shutout over host Heron Lake. Lucas Henning secured the win with nine innings of mound work, allowing only two hits while walking no one and striking out 16.

Worthington, 14-2 overall, got a three-hit effort at the plate from A.J. Hayenga. Tommy Hayenga drove in all of the Cubs’ runs with an RBI double and a three-run homer. Adam Munkel doubled.

Eric Jass and Austin Watkins had the Lakers’ two hits, both singles.
