He also had a huge game at the plate, hitting two home runs, a three-run shot in the first inning and a grand slam in the sixth. He finished the game 2-for-4 with three runs and seven RBI. Gavin Biegler also added three hits in the win.
In game two, Taylor Doll went the distance for the Perham, allowing just one run on four hits over his seven innings of work as the home team completed the sweep with a 10-1 win.
The Buzz keep the hot bats alive, pounding out 16 hits in the win. Ben Brill had a big game, collecting four hits and four RBI, including a two-run home run in the fourth. Andrew Muer also added four hits with a pair of doubles.
