Crazy game went to Irish
It was a crazy game at the Irish Field in Milroy on Friday.
For starters, Minneota led 1-0 after six endings.
Get this, Milroy committed six errors.
Minneota roared back to take a 9-3 lead in the eighth, Milroy came roaring back for a 10-9 lead in the eighth ... Minneota tied it 10-10 in the ninth and Milroy won it 11-10 in the bottom of the ninth.
See why it was called, "A Crazy Game."
"We just ran out of pitching. We didn't want to use Henry Pesch and Danny Hennen because we had two conference games on Saturday," said Assistant Manager Beau Buysse.
Tommy Fischer pitched into the seventh with a shutout, but suddenly began walking Milroy — including walking in a pair of runs.
After that, Beau Buysse, Ryan Koopman, Preston Nuy and Jesse Drager each took their turn on the mound.
Hit batters, walks and timely hitting, like the one Tyler Patterson hit to knock int he winning run, ended up being the Mudhens' downfall.
They were to play the Dumont Saints at Wheaton and at Morris Saturday, but both games were rained out.
Minneota 010 000 081 — 10 9 0
Milroy Irish 000 000 461 — 11 5 6
