Aiden Ladd for the Cardinals got his team on the board first, scoring one run in the opening inning after singling on a 1-2 count. Keenahn Coyle gets the win for the Cardinals as he surrendered two runs on three hits in four innings, striking out six.
The Cardinals managed to tally nine hits, with Ladd, Nate Kneebone, and Jacob Patterson each getting multiple hits. For the Mudcats, they got nine hits as well, with three batters getting multiple hits, one of whom was Dalton Allen.
The Mudcats will be in Lennox next week, Thursday June 2nd. That game will be on KJAM 103.1 FM. The Cardinals will host the Humboldt-Hartford Wood Ducks next Thursday.
