Prescott Pirates opener a success as town team tops Elmwood 8-6

The Prescott Pirates amateur baseball team rallied to beat Elmwood 8-6 Saturday to win its season and St. Croix Valley Baseball League opener at Firehall Field.

Prescott trailed 4-3 in the eighth inning when they scored four runs. An infield error plated the first run, then came an RBI-double by Rob Mouton, an RBI-single by Ryan Burmeister and another RBI hit by Logan Johnson. A bases loaded hit-by-pitch to Mike Lytle plated Johnson and Prescott led 8-4.

The Expos plated two runs in the ninth but Evan Bayer held on to get the win, as he pitched the eighth inning onward. Lytle, Alex Ross and Mike Brookshaw led Prescott on offense.

Prescott will be at home next weekend for SCVBL games vs. Bay City and Spring Valley.
