The New York Mills Eagles split a pair of games last week to improve to 2-3 overall. The Eagles fell to Pillager by a score of 2-1 on Tuesday night, before edging the Frazee Hornets by a score of 5-3 on Thursday. 

This week the Eagles will host Sebeka on Tuesday night, before traveling to Henning on Thursday to take on Otter Tail Central. On Friday the Eagles’ busy week will come to an end with a unique four team invite. The Eagles will host Cherry at 12 p.m., before playing South Ridge at 6 p.m. Ashby will also be participating in the baseball action on Friday as well.


A Finn Roder bunt with the bases loaded tied NY Mills’ game against Pillager at 1-1 in the top of the fifth inning on Tuesday night. Unfortunately, Pillager scored on a fielding error in the bottom of the sixth inning to take a 2-1 lead and hand NY Mills a 2-1 loss.

Despite being down 2-1, the Eagles had a chance to tie the game in the top of the seventh inning when Grady Roberts hit a single to lead off the inning. He was moved to second base by an Isaac Kawlewski sacrifice bunt, but was stranded at second base to end the game. 

Dashaun Robinson took the tough loss on the mound as he pitched six innings and struck out nine hitters. He gave up a pair of unearned runs in the loss.

NY Mills was outhit by a 9-5 margin, but the Eagles were able to string their hits together just enough to come away with a 5-3 win over Frazee on Thursday night.
