     Park Rapids, the No. 2 seed in the south half of the section, committed four errors that led to five unearned runs in ending the season with a 16-5 record.

     The Pirates, the No. 2 seed in the north half, used a walk and a pair of balks to take a 1-0 lead in the second inning before two walks, a hit batter, a single, a wild pitch and two Park Rapids errors led to four more runs in the third for a 5-0 lead.

     Park Rapids scored its lone run in the fourth on singles by Drew Bade, Chris Goplerud and Tyler McCollum.

     Two singles and an error led to Crookston’s final run in the seventh.

     Crookston lost to Thief River Falls 2-1 in the next round to end the season with an 11-10 record.

     Bade started and took the loss, allowing five runs on three hits and three walks over the first three innings. Only one of those runs was earned. McCollum finished up, allowing one unearned run on two hits.

     “Their pitcher was on, but we finally got some hits off him,” said Park Rapids head coach Zach Holsman. “We had too many walks and errors and we left too many runners on base.”
