‘Cats and ‘Dogs showdown set for Friday night in Union Hill

By Justin Braun

The Mudcats take it on the road Friday paying a visit to the Bulldogs of Union Hill, the first of four road games that will take them through the better part of May.

The Bulldogs are coming off of a 6-1 win last Sunday against the Faribault Lakers. The Mudcats ended last week with a heart-breaker; losing to the New Market Muskies 9-7 at “The Vet” in Prior Lake. Both teams are 1-1 in league play and 1.5 games out of first place. New Market has the sole league lead in standings with a record of 3-0.

First pitch at Union Hill Field is scheduled for 7:30 pm. Union Hill Field is located at the corner of Highway 19 Blvd. and Church Ave. in Union Hill, a quick 25-30 minute drive to southwestern Scott County from Prior Lake.
