Perham 5, Carlos 3

The Carlos Cougars saw their season come to an end on Friday night as Perham handed them a 5-3 loss in the Region 14C loser's bracket.

Matt Hoelscher had a home run and Nate Hoelscher went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI. That wasn't quite enough as Perham grabbed a 5-0 lead through seven innings before the Cougars scored their three in the final two frames.

Mark Hillesheim took the loss in five innings of work. He allowed four runs, all earned, on nine hits and four walks. He also struck out four before giving way to Jay Schueler. Schueler tossed the final three frames, allowing just one unearned run.

The Cougars finish their summer with an 18-2 record but short of a state tournament bid.
