Jack Ruhr Field, Home of the Five Time State Champions
That's 5 in a Row
Miesville adds 2 more wins this weekend over the defending state champs Dundas by a score of 15-7 and throttled Randolph 18-0 in 7 innings.
Miesville found themselves down 6-2 at one point last Friday night against Dundas, but battled back to tie the game (7-7) in the 7th off of a 2 run bomb by Brian Sprout and went on to add 8 more runs in the 8th inning securing the victory 15-7.
Sunday a very short staffed Miesville traveled to Randolph in the heat and made it a short game, eliminating the Railcats 18-0 in 7 innings. The Hens wasted no time scoring 8 in the top of the 1st and it was all over from there. Just about everybody contributed offensively but the highlight of the game was a Grand Slam by catcher Nate Hammes. Aaron Stein got the win going 6 strong only allowing 3 hits.
The Mudhens are now 9-3 on the season and scoring 63 runs in their last 6 games!
This week Miesville will host the Minneapolis Lakers on Wed 6/22 @ 8pm, the Lake City Serpents on Fri 6/24 @ 8pm, and the Northfield Knights on Sun 6/26 @ 2pm.
Miesville Starts a New 3 Game Win Streak
After dropping a pair of games to Hampton and the Minneapolis Angels, Miesville has won 3 straight over Randolph (10-0), Cannon Falls (6-1), and section rival Elko (8-3).
Next up is another section rival and defending state champs Dundas tomorrow, June 17th in Miesville at 8pm. Should be a great game between the 2 squads as Dundas and Miesville are both ranked as top teams in the state according the the MBA's most recent poll.
See you there!
Tonight's Game is Cancelled
Tonight's contest with Champlin has been cancelled due to the wet projected forecast for the rest of the evening. Miesville will host Hampton this Sunday 6/5 at 2pm which looks to be a beautiful day. See you then!

Due to wet weather and conditions, tonight's game has been postponed with Shakopee. We will look to make this up later this season.
Miesville will now have the home opener this Sunday at 2pm vs Hastings.
Rusty Season Opener Leads to Tough Loss
Game 1 for Miesville came a bit late this season due a cancelled season opener last weekend with Lake City. The Mudhens couldn't shake off enough rust to close out game 1 in Northfield. Miesville had a 3-2 lead headed into the bottom of the eighth but a couple of hits and unearned runs, Miesville gave up 4 runs and ended-up dropping the game 6-4.
Offensively hits were scattered having 9 though-out the game but a lack of timely hitting. The lone brightspot was the season debut of Miesville's new pitcher Bret Mitchell who struck out 11 in only 6 inning of work.
Miesville will be back in action for the home opener, this Friday 5/27, 8pm at the Jack as the Hens will host Shakopee.
