PERHAM -- A five-run fourth inning was enough for Detroit Lakes Post 15 to defeat the Perham Buzz 5-3 in the championship game of the Perham Home Run Club's Wooden Bat Tournament Sunday afternoon.


Three costly Buzz errors erased a 1-0 Perham advantage leading to five unearned runs on just one hit for the Lakers.

Reed Johnson got the only Laker hit, a two-RBI single that scored Jordan Manning and Ben Lindquist to push the lead to 3-1.
