Brandon Stokes worked a walk and Tyler Moyer took a pitch off of his arm to load the bases. With the count 3-2 on Moyer, Shaffer was nearly caught dead to rights as he had wandered off of second base. Shaffer dived back under the tag, keeping the momentum in Milton's favor.
Before he ended the game with a clutch hit, Artley reared back on the mound for Milton (13-6), throwing two scoreless frames after taking over for Cody Shaffer when the game resumed to earn the victory. Shaffer unofficially tossed 169 pitches over nine innings yesterday, and Artley seemed poised to take over right where Shaffer had left off.
Artley worked his way out of a lead-off single in the top of the 10th with three straight outs. After plunking Gardner in the helmet with a pitch high and tight in the 11th, Artley kept his composure to pull out of the frame.
Milton now plays Montgomery while Lewisburg travels to Hughesville; both of those games are today at 5:30.
