The East Mills baseball team won its conference opener 18-8 over Sidney last Tuesday.
“This game was much closer than the score indicates,” said East Mills coach Cole Buchholz. “We scored 13 runs in the final two innings after trailing 7-5 going into the sixth. Both teams made lots of errors, but we battled it out and put the ball in play.”
Charlie Ruff got the win on the mound, allowing seven hits, four earned runs, and striking out 10.
