Pirates sweep weekend games, clinch division title

The Prescott Pirates amateur baseball team won all three of its St. Croix Valley Baseball League games this past weekend to clinch another St. Croix Division title.

The Pirates downed Ellsworth 10-0 in seven innings on Friday. They won 5-1 vs. Hudson at home Saturday and finished the regular season with a 7-6 win over New Richmond, also at Firehall Field, Sunday.

Prescott has won 13 straight games since a 7-6 loss to Cannon Falls, Minn., in a tournament back in June.

The playoff pairings for the Wisconsin Baseball Association (WBA) Tournament will be made tonight in Chippewa Falls.

Read more on the Pirates weekend of wins in the print edition of the Prescott Journal, on newsstands and in town on Wednesday.
