Aitkin improved its record to 4-0-2 while Pierz drops to 6-1-1.
In the first game, Isaac Collins led off the bottom of the seventh with a double, went to third on a wild pitch strikeout and scored the winning run after losing pitcher Cody Weiss intentionally walked the next two batters to load the bases and then walked a third batter in a row.
