BIRD ISLAND - BOLD will take an 8-8 record into the playoffs after edging Hutchinson 6-4 and 10-9 in a doubleheader on Saturday.

The Mudhens collected 27 hits in the twin bill with Austin Weis going 5-for-8 to drive in four runs and ignite the offense. Weis was the only player to get more than one hit in both games, but the Mudhens’ balanced attack stymied Hutchinson.

Ben Steffel pitched a complete game in the opener, scattering seven hits, four runs and four strikeouts, to get the win. Trevor Nissen got the win in relief and Ben Steffel picked up a two-inning save in the second game.

Weis had a two-run single in a four-run fifth and hit a go-ahead RBI single in the sixth in the opener. Riley Kramer added an RBI single and RBI double.

Lane Stadther, Max Buchtel, Trevor Nissen and Reed Stadther had RBI singles in the first inning to help give BOLD a quick 5-0 lead in the second game. Hutchinson owned an 8-7 lead after five innings before Steffel and Lane Stadther hit back-to-back RBI doubles and Weis drove in Stadther with the eventual winning run on a single in the sixth.
