Area amateur baseball: Miesville 10, Woodbury 1
Game recap: Miesville's trio of Matt Hanse, Brian Myers, and Andrew Werner combined to hold Woodbury to just two hits Friday night at Jack Ruhr Field in Miesville. The Mudhens scored all of their runs in the middle innings, including five in the fourth. Woodbury scored it's lone run in the seventh inning.
Difference maker: Miesville relies on getting the top of the order on base, according to player/manager Garrett Retka, and against Woodbury they did just that. The sixth inning started with two straight doubles, and Woodbury eventually walked the bases loaded that inning as well. Miesville went on to score four in the sixth.
"If we get the top of the order on, things happen," Retka said.
Top players: Nate Otto led the way for the Mudhens, finishing 3-for-5 with two RBI and three runs scored. Dave Johnson displayed his power by hitting a two-run home run.
Next up: Bay City at Miesville (21-3 overall, 10-0 Classic Cannon Valley League), 2 p.m. Sunday
