Squires Use Big Sixth Inning To Top Peru

The Manchester baseball team had one of those nights when nothing was going right to one inning when everything went right to defeat Peru on the road 11-8.

For the first five innings Peru would capitalize on 8 Squire errors and held Manchester to just three hits to lead the Squires 8-2 heading to the sixth. Peru had scored 7 unearned runs.

That’s when everything went from going wrong to going right. The Squires would erupt for 9 runs in the top of the sixth before an out was made, stranding runners but leading 11-8. The Squires pulled starting pitcher Logan Brunn in the sixth and then relied on Connor McLaughlin to get the save, which he did.

Brunn, Mclaughlin, Cripe and Schuler had hits in the big inning. The Squires also drew 4 walks in the inning.

Brunn got the win, pitching 5 innings, allowing 8 hits and 8 runs (1ER). Connor Mclaughlin recorded the save.

Logan Brunn and Jurgin Cripe had two hits each. Connor McLaughlin, Caleb Thomas and Cody Harlan each had a hit.
