Hutchinson Rolls Through 2017 Mudhen Invitational
Posted June 19, 2017
The 2017 edition of the BOLD Mudhen Invitational Tournament turned out to be the personal playground for the Hutchinson team. Their three wins were all ended early due the 10-run rule being enforced. Only Annandale, in pool play, was able to score against them as the pitching staff was dominant. Couple that with an offense the produced 38 runs in three games and you have a classic formula for championships.
In pool play Hutchinson downed Granite Fall 10-0 and Annandale/Clear Lake 12-2. That set up a championship matchup against West St Paul who defeated Cottonwood 10-0 and BOLD 8-3 in pool play. Hutchinson proved to have the deeper pitching staff for the weekend and blew away West St Paul Challenger 16-0 in the final game of the tournament.
Congratulations to Hutchinson, who also claimed championships in 2015 and 2013 at the Mudhen Invitational.
BOLD finished 2-1 in the tournament after winning the 3rd place game 8-5 over Granite Falls.
