The Pilot Mound Pilots scored first in the Tuesday evening game, but were unable to hold on to that lead and fell to the Morden Mohawks 7-1. The Mohawks have now won two in a row.

Co-coach Steve Mullin talked about the game. "A little bit of a slow start, I don't think we had a hit until about the fourth inning or so," said Mullin. "Finally got the bats going just in time to pull one out here, and made it a little bit more comfortable going into the seventh."

Both starting pitchers went the distance, with Mohawks starter Derek Holenski getting the win, and Duncan Lowry receiving the loss. Through Holenski's seven innings of work he struck out 3 and Lowry had one. "I pitch to contact so I am not going to walk a lot of guys," said Holenski. "I'm fairly efficient, and I am not going to burn through a lot of pitches. Generally that's what I do is I eat innings, and I try to hold them to as few runs as possible. They have a pretty good hitting lineup. They've got a lot of lefty's and as a right hander that's hard to throw to. So you have to hit corners, pick your spots, and work ahead. That was big for me today I didn't get behind in too many counts."

Mohawks Short Stop Sam Bryson had a single and a Home-run, while Pilots Center Fielder Clint Maxwell did his part at the plate with a pair of singles and came around to score on one of them. "Just the bat on the ball, and I was just looking for strikes. Thankfully the ball fell in a few times for me. It was kind of nice, as we have been struggling a little bit, it was nice," said Maxwell.


The Pilot Mound Pilots will welcome the Kilarney Lakers to Pilot Mound on Thursday while, the Mohawks host the Cartwright Twins Thursday evening at Buhler Field. First pitch for both games is 7p.m.
