Bulls hand Pirates first defeat

Jackson 000 100 441 = 10-11-3
Windom 100 000 021 = 4-6-2

A skeleton crew for the Windom Pirates struggled to find its offensive footing Sunday afternoon and Jackson’s offense came to life late.

That allowed the Bulls to claim a 10-4 victory over the Pirates at Island Park, sending Windom to its first loss of the season.

The Pirates took a 1-0 lead early in the game. Brett Willaby led off the bottom of the first with a walk, stole second and scored on a Noah Kloss single.

Jackson tied the game with a run in the fourth, then took the lead with a four-run seventh innings.

Jackson added four more runs in the top of the eighth, taking a 9-1 lead before the Pirates could answer. In the bottom of the eighth, Kloss hit an RBI single and a run scored when Kyle Espenson reached on an error.

Windom’s final run scored on a Nick Christensen sacrifice fly in the ninth.

Willaby and Kloss each had two hits for the Pirates.

Kobe Lovell took the pitching loss, allowing five runs on nine hits in 6-2/3 innings. He walked two and struck out 10.

Worthington 101 000 202 = 6-10-0
Mt. Lake 000 010 200 = 3-5-1

The Mt. Lake Lakers fell behind early Sunday and could never quite catch up, falling 6-3 to the Worthington Cubs in First Nite League play at Munson Field.

The Cubs scored single runs in the first and third innings, then answered each time the Lakers tried to mount a comeback.

Mt. Lake got on the board in the bottom of the fifth when Zach Spinks drew a bases-loaded walk.

Then, trailing 4-1 in the seventh, the Lakers cut the deficit to 4-3 on a Spinks RBI double and a Levi Jahnke groundout.

Worthington put the game away with a pair of runs in the top of the ninth.

Zpinks had two of the five Laker hits in the loss.

Spinks also took the pitching loss, allowing four runs on nine hits in seven innings. He walked two and struck out five.
