PERHAM — Park Rapids (21-3) was six outs away from a berth in the Section 8AA baseball final, but the Perham Yellowjackets (20-2) exploded for a nine-run sixth inning to bury Panther hopes in a 10-3 victory between the section’s top seeds Tuesday afternoon at Krueger Field.


Perham used small ball, a long ball and got some aid from Panther fielding in the Yellowjackets’ big inning to come back from a 3-1 deficit.
