On Sunday afternoon, the Mt. Lake Lakers returned home to face off against the Windom Pirates.
The Lakers got on the board first on an error by Windom to score to Blake Spinks in the bottom of the first.
Windom responded with a pair of runs in the top of the second on singles from Brett Willaby and Joel Riordan. The Pirates added to their lead by tacking on two more in the top of the third.
Alex Fink started the inning with a double and advanced to third on a Noah Kloss single to center. Another single to center by Connor Redman plated Fink. A sacrifice fly by Willaby scored Kloss to push the lead to 4-1.

In the top of the sixth— following a wild pitch to score a run— Fink laced a double to right to score Jack Meilstrom.
A single from Derek Harder scored Jahnke to cut the lead down to 6-3 in the bottom of the sixth.
In the top of the seventh, once again, Windom had an answer.
After loading the bases on the strength of single, an error, and a walk, Riordan skied a sacrifice fly to right, easily scoring Redman. The relay throw was bobbled by Jacob Brey, allowing Kade Sammons to scamper in from second, making it an 8-3 game.
Windom would add another run via a sacrifice fly, putting the finishing touches on the 9-3 win.
Kobe Lovell earned the win for the Pirates. Tyler Duerkson was credited with the loss.
