MIDDLEBURG -- Midd-West picked up by far its biggest win of the season when the Mustangs edged Danville, 6-5 in nine innings, to take the Heartland-I matchup Tuesday.
Midd-West (4-12) scoring the winning run when Jenna Aumiller singled home Brynn Markley, who batted 3-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in the third inning. Markley also drove in three runs for the Mustangs.
More impressive than Markley's performance at the plate was Adrianne Gesselman, who got the complete-game win despite issuing 15 walks in the game.
"I don't know how we won the game," said Midd-West coach Pete Voss. "Danville had four errors, but we also had some timely hitting."
Danville falls to 3-8.
