Hot hitting, especially by Isaac Stoll, helped the Perham buzz American Legion team to four wins in five game on the road last week.
Stoll went 15-for-19 with 6 doubles, a triple, one home run, six runs scored and 13 RBI over the last five games for Post 61.
He began his hot-streak with a 4-for-4 game with three RBI in a 6-0 win at Thief River Falls. Eric Weller and Herschel Masinas had two hits a piece and Philip Moenkedick went the distance on the mound for the win.
TRF scored a pair of run in the bottom of the sixth to take game two of the doubleheader, 12-10.
Ben Warne led the offensive attack, going 3-for-4 with a homer and four runs scored. Masinas and Dylan Anderson also had home runs in the loss.
The Buzz finished off their northern swing on Friday with a doubleheader sweep at Crookston, 18-6 and 15-1. Perham had 32 hits in the 10 innings that were played, as both games were called after five innings because of the 10-run rule.
Perham scored four runs in the first, four more in the third inning to open up an 9-2 lead in game one. They put it away with six more in the sixth. The Buzz not only knocked out 17 hits in the game, but took advantage of 10 walks given up by Crookston pitching.
Anthony Ruther earned the win for Perham. Stoll was 4-for-5 with five RBI, Masinas was 3-for-5 with four RBI and Moenkedick was 3-for-4 with a triple and two RBI.
Perham stayed hot going into game two as they scored four runs in each of the first three innings on their way to the 15-1 win.
Andy Kratzke was 3-for-4 with three RBI and Stoll added a homer and drove in four. Marcus Hendrickson was the winning pitcher for the Buzz.
The Buzz hit the road again on Monday, winning at Park Rapids, 9-3 in a nine inning game.
Dylan Anderson picked up the win with four innings of relief of starter Mac Stoll.
Perham trailed 2-1 when they scored five times in the fifth inning. They added single runs in the sixth, seventh and ninth.
Hendrickson was 2-for-4 with three stolen bases and three RBI. Isaac Stoll was 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles. Masinas and Weller each added two hits.
Perham (13-9) will host Fergus Falls at Matt's Field today (July 19) in a doubleheader starting at 5 p.m. They travel to Moorhead on July 23 before.
Frazee rededicates field
with win over NYM
Frazee honored SSG Greg Riewer, who was killed in action in Iraq earlier this year, by renaming their baseball field after him and putting up a new electronic scoreboard. Frazee gave the new scoreboard a good test run with a 7-1 win over New York Mills Monday night.
Frazee scored two in the first, two more in the third and three in the fourth off Mills starter Mike Baune. Brendan Frost pitched the final two innings for Post 116.
Mills (4-8) recorded their lone run in the second when Alex Helmeke scored on an error.
NY Mills played a doubleheader at D-G-F on Tuesday. Scores were not reported at press time.
Post 116 will finish the regular season on July 20 at Pelican Rapids. The Sub-District Tournament will be at D-G-F July 26-29.
