Minor League Scorebook
Baird: 2-5, 1 K
Haerther: 4-5, 1 2B, 1 HR, 7 RBI
Arenas: 4.0 IP, 3 R, 0 ER, 5 H, 3 K, 0 BB, 0.00 ERA
Berg: (W, 1-0) (in relief), 4.0 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 H, 8 K, 0 BB, 1 HR, 2.25 ERA
Casey Haerther's two-out, three-run jack in the first inning put the Owlz ahead 3-0, but that lead turned out to be short-lived as the Ospreys got three of their own on an error, a hit batter, and a pair of triples in the bottom of the frame. Orem got another run in the top of the third on an RBI single by Haerther, and five more in the fifth. In all, Haerther drove in seven of the Owlz' 13 runs. One reason for that productivity is the fact that Haerther faced Missoula starter Charles Brewer at UCLA and was well-acquainted with his repertoire.
The win, of course, gives Tom Kotchman's squad the Pioneer League title. And with that, the end of Minor League Scorebook series. Hope everyone's enjoyed it.
