The Detroit Lakes bats were hot, even though the weather outside didn’t match, as the Lakers swept visiting Mid-State Conference foe Perham Thursday at Snappy Park.


The Lakers put together their fourth win in a row with victories of 7-4 and 15-5 in five innings over the Yellowjackets.

It was the offense which propelled the Lakers in both wins, with a combined 26 hits, but the defense stiffened again and the pitching of Chaz Butz is heightening the team as well.
