Another one-run loss to Yankees
For the second time in two weeks, the highly-regard Milroy Yankees took a one-run game from the Minneota Mudhens.
The Mother's Day late-afternoon classic went to the home team, 5-4.
The Mudhens had trouble hitting the Yankees highly-regard hurler Nathan Deutz. He gave up just one hit and left the game after five innings with the contest tied, 1-1.
A four-run rally by Milroy in the seventh broke a 1-1 tie. Fighting back from the 5-1 deficit, the Mudhens rallied in the ninth inning for five hits to score three runs against Deutz's brother Austin Deutz. The tying and going-ahead runs were on base but Deutz got Jordan Beck to ground out to preserve the Milroy victory.
In the ninth, Noah Scott got a hit, Austin Buysse his second of the game, Drew Fadness a pinch-hit single, Danny Hennen a hit and Peyton Nuy a single as the Mudhens rallied, but it fell short.
Minneota did turn three double plays, all going through second baseman Beau Buysse.
Jake Leighton pitched seven innings and took the loss with Bryce Gorder in relief for the Mudhens. Leighton took the loss.
Nathan Deutz fanned eight Mudhens and picked up the win.
Dylan Criquett-Danielson collected a pair of hits for the Yankees.
Minneota, now 3-2 on the year, with both losses to the Yankees, play at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at home against the Granite Falls Kilowatts.
