Mammoths Ride Deuchars To Victory

Jeremy Deuchars drove in the winning run with a two out, two strike flare over the infield in the top of the eighth inning to back his own complete game six hit pitching as the Mammoths downed the Pirates 6-2 in the late game at Ahuska Friday night.

The Mammoths opened the scoring in the second when Mike Brouette came home on Alex Campbell's single. The Pirates tied it in the fifth when Bob Schwalb doubled with two outs and scored on Tim Adamany's single.

The Mammoths retook the lead in the top of the sixth when David Pereira led the inning off by getting plunked and later scoring on a wild pitch.

The Pirates tied it right back up in the bottom half with Chris Peters' lead off walk coming around to score on Jim Dorn's ground ball to Deuchars, whose throw home was a half second too late to get Peters.

But then in the eighth a walk, a single and a fielder's choice sandwiched around a strikeout set the stage for the game winner. The Mammoths tacked on three more insurance runs and the Pirates went down without much fuss in the bottom half.
