The Miesville Mudhens completed just over three innings of their first-round, Class B State Tournament game Friday night in Chaska against the Chaska Cubs before rain ended play for the night. As the game stood when the postponement hit, Miesville leads Chaska 5-0 in the bottom of the fourth with Miesville up to bat. Play will resume Sunday evening.
Jacob Dickmeyer started on the mound for the Mudhens and has given up just two hits through four innings pitched. In the bottom of the first, Max Gamm singled and Joey Werner reached on an error. Matt Van Der Bosch then moved them over with a sacrifice bunt and Austin LaDoux hit a sacrifice fly to score Gamm. The next batter was Nate Hammes, who also reached on an error that allowed Werner to score and Miesville led 2-0 after the first inning.
The Mudhens scored three more runs in the bottom of the second. Brian Sprout and Max Morris led off with consecutive singles and Sprout came around to score on a single by Gamm and error by the Chaska pitcher. Werner then cleared the bases with a triple that brought in Morris and Gamm to make it 5-0, which is the current score.
Should Miesville hold on to win, they would then play East Grand Forks on Saturday, Aug. 28, in Hamburg at 1 p.m. East Grand Forks beat the Anoka Bucs 7-1 late Saturday morning.
