BEMIDJI — Crooked numbers can straighten out an offense in a hurry.
Those kinds of innings did wonders for the Bemidji High School baseball team on Tuesday, as the Lumberjacks hung big numbers on the scoreboard in a 9-7 and 8-5 sweep over Duluth East at the BSU baseball field.
“We have nine guys that hit the ball really well and have good at-bats, so those big innings can start anywhere in our lineup,” BHS head coach Mike Fogelson said. “The key is getting that first guy on and having a lot of good at-bats.”
Bemidji built up a 7-0 lead in game one with a four-run first inning and a three-run second. Then in game two, the Jacks put up five in the fifth inning to separate from what had been a one-run game.
