Mike Vogt and George Conklin hit home runs and the Pirates edged the Spring Mills Braves 8-7 on Thursday.
Parker Watson picked up his fourth win of the season and is unbeaten in all of his decisions. He went five innings, surrendered seven runs on nine hits, struck out five and walked four.
Vogt’s two-run homer got things started for the Pirates in the first and Conklin’s solo shot in the fifth provided the run Philipsburg needed to hold on to the win.
