Sunday Social: June 10 – Issue No. 5

Posted on June 11, 2012 by CJ Siewert

Welcome to the fifth issue of Sunday Social. From this point forward, Sunday Social will be posted each Monday with reported scores from the previous Monday through Sunday.

A pair of invitational tournament champions was crowned on Sunday. The Metro Merchants defeated the Minneapolis Cobras in the Cannon Falls Tourney, while the Blue Earth Pirates topped the Freeport Black Sox 6-5 in the 14th Annual Tigertown Classic, hosted by the Belle Plaine Tigers. Blue Earth earned its third title at the Belle Plaine tourney as the Pirates also won it all in 2005 and 2008. The Pirates are now 12-0 on the year.

Metro Merchants vs. Minneapolis Cobras recap courtesy of: http://www.ballcharts.com/merchantsbaseball

Metro took command early in the first 6-0 thanks in part to Cobra walks. A grand slam called foul could have been icing on the cake in the first inning, but nonetheless a good start. Merchants continued to get consistency throughout the line-up as D. Ellfeson and C. Coffin each hit their first home runs of the year. Veteran Joel Perzel pitched well allowing just two runs through five innings to get the win. Metro took a 12-2 lead into the seventh, but the Cobras would not go quietly scoring six in the seventh off reliever M. Eickmann. C. Beneford got the save pitching the eighth and ninth, but hats off to the Cobras for making Metro sweat till the end.

As always, keep posting your scores to your social media pages and we’ll share them here each Monday. Also spread the word to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
