"We hit the ball hard, just right at everybody," Coach Marc Niemeyer said. "We made way too many errors on defense and have to communicate better."

On Thursday, the Mules beat Adna 3-2.

"Luke Brown clutched up for a two run, walk-off home run to seal the deal," Coach Niemeyer said. "It was a great baseball game with good pitching and defense by both teams and a lot of hard hits. James (Anderson) threw a heck of a game and Zach (Brown) closed the door."

Anderson struck out 10 batters and walked two in six and one-third innings. He allowed one run and three hits. Z. Brown finished the game, striking out five and allowing one run and one hit.

Along with L. Brown's home run, both Niemeyer and Cody Terpsma stepped up to the plate for doubles.

The Mules return to play on Saturday.
