Pierre Slips Past Smittys

ABERDEEN, SD (GC.com) –

Pierre Post 8  9-8

Aberdeen Smittys

The Smittys lost a 2nd 1-run game to the Post 8 squad yesterday as Pierre eked out a 9-8 win at Fossum Field.  Aberdeen left the bags juiced as Aiden McCafferty was retired to end the game on a fantastic play at SS by Pierre.  Aberdeen had four errors in the loss and got out-hit, 13-11.  The Smittys fell behind 2-0 after 1inn and were never quite able to catch up… getting down by as many as 4R and as close as 1R multiple times.  Isaac Van Orman piled up 4H, scored 2x, and drove in one; while Tyler Traphagen plated three.  Brandon Kusler crossed the dish thrice, and on the bump he lasted 8inn and cranked out 10K w/ 6R (2ER) allowed in taking the loss.
