n Hughesville 2,

Milton 0

HUGHESVILLE -- Brent Steele's RBI single in the sixth inning gave Hughesville a much-needed insurance run in the West Branch League win over Milton.

Hughesville (6-3) led just 1-0 after scoring a run on a wild pitch in the first.

That single run was plenty for starting pitcher Tyler Mitcheltree, who carried a no-hitter into the sixth for Hughesville until it was broken up by a bunt base hit by Michael Jacobs. Mitcheltree finished with nine strikeouts and two walks.

"(Mitcheltree) threw a real nice ballgame," said Hughesville manager Gary Gordner.

Hughesville is off today, but the team travels to Montgomery on Wednesday.
