He faced 10 batters, walked five, allowed one hit and two runs. Ashden Niemeyer pitched the final two and 2/3 innings. He struck out five of 12 batters and walked two, allowing two hits and one run.

Luke Brown went 4-4 at bat, hit two doubles, and drove in one run. Z. Brown hit a double and had two RBIs. Anderson had a double and drove in one run.

"We hit the ball hard and made some really nice plays defensively," Coach Marc Niemeyer said. "Pitchers threw strikes and kept runners at bay."

The Mules begin the post season at home on Saturday at 3 p.m. They'll face the winner of the Central 5/Pacific 4 game, which will take place on the same field starting at 12 noon.
