NYM Baseball: Parkers Prairie takes two from Eagles
Perham Minnesota 222 2nd Avenue SE 56573

Mills returned home on May 5 to take on Parkers Prairie in a pair of games at Jacobson Field.

The Panthers proved too much for the Eagles as they pulled off the sweep, winning game one, 11-0, and taking game two, 16-6.


NY Mills managed just three hits in game one. Tanner Wegscheid was 1-for-1 and was hit by two pitches. Mills committed nine errors in the field in the game one loss.

Wegscheid tried to keep the Eagles in game two, going 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a run scored and an RBI. Jarrod Norton hit a solo homer in the fifth and finished the day 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI, but it wasn't enough to overcome the 10-run inning Parkers Prairie put together in the fourth.

The Eagles had won five-straight overall against the Panthers, including a sweep in last year's double dip, 4-2 and 17-8.

Pair of back-to-backs
