PHS Baseball: Perham sweeps Pequot Lakes

The Jackets rebounded from Monday's loss to Fergus Falls with a doubleheader sweep over Pequot Lakes Tuesday night, 6-2 and 8-5.

Nate Schmitz went the distance in game one, striking out seven and allowing just two hits.

The Jackets scored three times in the fourth on three doubles by Schmitz, Tyler Lynne and Jon Langlie. A double by Anthony Ruther in the sixth capped off another three-run rally.

In game two, Perham scored six times in the fourth inning with Schmitz connecting on a three-run homer.

Brad Ellingson picked up the win on the mound with five innings of work.

Perham has now won nine-straight against the Patriots. The first game will start at 4 p.m.


The Jackets will hit the road on May 8 for a doubleheader against Mid-State rival Detroit Lakes. Last year, Perham lost both regular season games to the Lakers, but got their revenge with a 10-5 win in the Section 8AA playoffs.

Perham will be looking to extend their dominance over Frazee (1-5) in the "Battle of the Bees" on May 11 at Krueger Field. The Yellowjackets are 9-0 against the Hornets since 2001.

The Jackets will make it three games in two days with a Mid-State doubleheader at Staples-Motley on May 12. S-M swept Perham last year, 3-1 and 6-2.

Schedule change

Perham's regular season game scheduled against Sebeka on May 22 has been moved. Perham will now host Sebeka on May 18 at Krueger Field at 5 p.m.
