PIERRE-Mitchell Black only managed five hits in each game of a teener baseball doubleheader, leading to it being swept by Pierre on Tuesday.
Pierre took down Mitchell 9-5 in the first game, then struck early to claim a 5-1 five-inning victory to end the night.
In the first game, Lukas Bennett, Dylan Soulek and Noah Larson all had an RBI single during a four-run third inning to help Mitchell take a 4-1 lead. However, Pierre answered with eight runs between the third and fourth to take a commanding 9-4 advantage.
Soulek finished 2-for-3, helping Mitchell finish with five hits as a team. Larson suffered the loss, allowing six runs (four earned) on six hits and three walks over his three-inning start. Although, after Pierre plated a trio of runs against Kaden Contreras, Peyton Schroder tossed two shutout innings to close the game. Mitchell committed six errors.
Larson lasted one inning in his start in Game 2 as Pierre took a 5-1 lead by the end of the second. After Larson allowed three runs (one earned), Dylan Soulek struck out six but gave up two earned runs in the final three frames.
Tanner Puetz singled in Connor Hohn in the second inning for Mitchell, but it was held to one hit in the final three innings.
Mitchell (0-6) hosts a teener tournament on Friday and Saturday.
