Crookston is now 7-6 on the season.
The Pirate baseball team ran into some solid pitching Friday as Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton shut out Crookston 7-0, holding the Pirates to four hits at Jim Karn Field.
"We were not able to cash in on some opportunities to score runs early in the game and that came back to hurt us in the end," said Pirate head coach Ted Hasz. "The game was much closer than the score indicates. DGF has a nice team and deserves credit for playing well."
Senior Josh Edlund started for Crookston, lasting five innings and allowing three earned runs, four total, on five hits and six walks. He struck out six. Junior Parker Epema pitched two innings in relief and allowed three earned runs on five hits and two walks, while striking out two.
Senior Dylan Klatt went 2-for-3 at the plate with a double, while senior Kyle Proulx also had a double. Edlund was 1-for-2 with two walks and two stolen bases.
"We did struggle a bit at the plate, especially with runners on base," coach Hasz noted.
Tyler Oberg pitched four innings for the Rebels to get the win. He allowed two hits and three walks. Isaiah Greene pitched three innings, allowing four hits and striking out seven.
Crookston is now 7-6 on the season. Today's game in Grand Forks has been postponed. The Pirates are set to travel to East Grand Forks Tuesday for a doubleheader with the Green Wave at 4:30 p.m.
"We feel that we should have a very good chance of hosting a first round game," explained coach Hasz. "We feel that we have a chance to make some noise in the playoffs as many teams do this season. We want to clean up everything this week and continue to develop our pitching depth."
