Batavia beat Scrappers 2nd straight night

Niles, Ohio (WKBN)- Starter Cameron Hill had another great start Saturday night, but in the end, the Scrappers bats fell silent against the Muckdogs, losing 2-1.



Hill went 4 innings again, making it his third start in a row doing so. The young righty only gave up one hit, and struck out 4 Muckdogs before being relieved.

The Scrappers had a great chance in the third to break things open when 1st-round pick Bradley Zimmer stepped to the dish with the bases loaded and one out. Zimmer took reliever Jacob Smigelski deep to left field for a sac fly that scored Ordomar Valdez to take the lead 1-0.

But that was the only offense Mahoning Valley could muster. Only getting two more hits after the third inning.

On the other end, the Muckdogs offense was not much better, only having two hits all game, but those hits proved vital in scoring their 2 runs.

Brad Haynal singled in the 6th that plated Wildert Pujols and Mason Davis, both players walked earlier in the inning.

The Scrappers and Muckdogs wrap their series Sunday at Eastwood Field at 5:05.
