One hot inning was all the Perham Pirates needed as they improved to 2-0 with a 4-2 win at Bertha on Sunday in HI-10 Baseball.
Perham trailed 2-0 in the fifth when Ryan Enger led-off with a single. Tyler Doll reached by getting hit by a pitch and Matt Schornack loaded the bases when his sacrifice bunt attempt went for a bunt- single.
A walk to Mike Winjum scored the first run, then Jon Kotaska tied the game with a sacrifice fly. Schornack scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch, the Winjum came in on a RBI ground-out by Tyler Sjolie, giving Perham a 4-2 lead.
Sjolie started the game on the mound for the Pirates, allowing two runs on four hits through four innings. A.J. Masinas pitched five innings of shutout relief to pick up his second win.
The Pirates will take on Frazee Wednesday night (May 23) before a two-week lay-off. They resume play June 8 at Fergus Falls. Perham's next home game will be June 10 against Bluffton.
