Logan Brunn was on the mound and after stopping Peru in the 1st the Squire offense wasted no time in separating themselves from the opposition.

Peru would try to claw their way back in to the game, scoring 5 runs in the top of the 3rd. The Squire offense cooled down a little, not scoring in the 3rd or 4th innings. Brunn was back on his game after the shaky 3rd and held the Tigers in check, not letting them score in the 4th.
Manchester would erupt again in the 5th, scoring 7 times. Jim Sainsbury pitched the last inning, holding Peru scoreless and the Squires got the win they needed before Thursday’s sectional.
