The top-seeded Mudhens (27-4) used a seven-run second inning to take control of the game early. Miesville collected seven hits in the inning while taking advantage of an error and two walks. The Mudhens finished with 18 hits in the game, after tallying 16 in a 14-3 Game 1 victory Sunday in Miesville.


Charles Bruchu was 3-for-5 with three runs scored, Nate Hammes finished 3-for-6 with two RBI and a run, and Andrew Werner went 3-for-5 at the plate with a double, three RBI and a run. Spencer Merle scored three times while going 2-for-5, and Joey Werner helped the Mudhens' cause by going 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI.

Sundays contest was with the Dundas Dukes who entered Sunday right behind Miesville in Section 1B play and currently ranked #3 in the state behind the #2 Mudhens.  It was a pretty even game as both teams had quality pitchers on the mound until the top of the 9th.  with the game tied at 2 Miesville loaded the bases with nobody out and ended scoring 2 to go ahead 4-2 even though a contiversial out was given to Dundas via the infield fly rule.  Dundas did fight back to pull within one but they stranded the tying run on 3rd as Miesville escaped with a 4-3 win.

Hens Win Another 4, Streak is at 12 Games!

3 More Wins, 8 in a Row for the Hens

Miesville tallied 3 more wins last week defeating the Minneapolis Lakers 7-1, Lake City 8-0, and Northfield 9-7.  That makes 8 straight victories for Miesville who is now 12-3 on the season.

Last Wednesday's game vs the Lakers was highlighted by a complete game pitching performance by Jacob Dickmeyer who nearly got the shut out but allowed 1 earned run in the 9th inning.  He struck out 8 batters on the day with only 2 walks.  Offensively Miesville had 13 hits with multiple hits from Matt Van Der Bosch (3), Deryk Marks (2), Brian Sprout (2), and Zach Laffey (2).

Friday the Mudhens defeated Lake City 8-0 behind more good pitching from starter Steve Maher and 3 innings of relief from Ryan Fritze.  Maher went 6 innings with 10 K's and no runs while Fritze added 3 innings of scoreless relief and tallied 4 K's himself.  Multiple hits came from Nate Hammes and Deryk Marks who also added a HR.

Sundays contest featured the Northfield Knights who gave Miesville their only section loss so far this season.  On a very windy and offensive day, Miesville out slugged Northfield with 19 hits to their 12, with a 9-7 final score.  Andrew Werner struggled early giving up 6 runs in only 3 innigs but reliever Deryk Marks was brilliant going the next 6 innings only allowing 1 run for the rest of the game.  Northfield tied the game at 7 in the 7th but Miesville would answer right back in the bottom of the frame when Matt Van Der Bosch let off with a HR and Brian Sprout scored on a Nate Hammes 2B.  Miesville had everyone in the lineup tally at least 1 hit and 8 of the 9 starters all had multiple hits in the game!  Marks also added a solo HR of his own.

It will be another busy week at the Jack when Miesville hosts Rosetown 6/29 @8pm, Eagan 7/1 @8pm, Cannon Falls 7/3 @2pm, and the annual 4th of July rivalry game vs Red Wing @2pm.  See you there!

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.

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.
