Amateur Baseball: Pirates split pair of home games

The Perham Pirates split a pair of games in HI-10/Countryside Amateur Baseball action last week.

The Pirates completed a season sweep over Bluffton last Wednesday with a 3-2 win in 10 innings. Perham had won the earlier meeting this season, 7-2.

Eric Weller pitched all 10 innings for the Pirates, allowing eight hits with five strikeouts.

The offense for the Pirates was held in check by Braves starter Dustin Geiser. The Pirates managed seven hits in the win, with the biggest one coming with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th. The inning started with two groundouts, but Justin Berns kept the inning alive with a walk. Taylor Doll followed that walk with a base hit that moved Berns to third. Ryan Enger then had a long at bat that ended in a walk. With the bases loaded and two outs and a 2-2 count, Tyler Doll drilled a line drive over the center fielder's head for a game winning hit.

The Pirates remained at home on Sunday, but dropped a 9-3 game to the Pelican Rapids Lakers.
