PERHAM — An ugly baseball game came to an almost fitting ending with a controversial call leading to a last gasp opportunity for the Perham Pirates, who defeated the Wadena-Deer Creek Shockers 8-7 in 11 innings in a Hi-10 East-West battle Saturday night.


After tying at six on the back of a combined nine errors in nine innings between the teams, the game lasted past the worst of the mosquito onslaught at sundown and ended in a wild 11th frame.
