Hank Ferguson hit the ball to second base and was thrown out at first in the bottom of the sixth.

The Mules won the nightcap 10-3. Z. Brown pitched the entire game and got the win. He allowed two hits, three runs, and struck out nine.

Ferguson went 1-3 at bat. He hit a double and drove in three runs. Luke Brown was 2-3 at bat, driving in two runs. Ashden Niemeyer had one RBI.

"James (Anderson) and Zach (Brown) both threw complete games and kept hitters off the bases," Coach Marc Niemeyer said. "We are going to have to quit making mental errors and clutch up more with runners in scoring position."

The Mules travel to Toledo today (Thursday) for a doubleheader. They travel to Toutle Lake for their last doubleheader of the regular season on Tuesday.

District play begins May 7. The Mules' current standing means they may get to start the playoffs at home.
