SUNBURY- Midd-West got a complete game from starter Hunter Shuff to go with some timely hitting to drop Shikellamy 7-1 on Wednesday in a baseball game at Shikellamy High School.
Eli Stem and Matt Aurand each doubled and had multiple hits for the Mustangs, who were able to supply enough offense in support of Shuff.
"Hunter threw an excellent ball game," Midd-West coach Ron Flood said. "We can't ask for a better game than Hunter pitched."
The Mustangs have done it thus far this season with pitching, defense and timely hitting, and this game was no different.
"The story of our season so far has been getting timely hits and taking advantage of mistakes," Flood said. "When you do those things, you're going to win some ballgames."
The Mustangs (4-1, 3-1 Heartland Conference) will be back in action at 4:30 p.m. Friday when they travel to Mifflinburg.
Lancaster County Day 14, Greenwood 6
MILLERSTOWN - Greenwood's pitching staff couldn't get the ball across the plate Wednesday, and it resulted in a 14-6 loss to Lancaster Country Day.
Between Greenwood's three pitchers, the Wildcats gave up 23 free passes, allowing Lancaster Country Day to walk away with Tri-Valley League win.
Mitch Taylor had a double for Greenwood, and Adam Harrison collected an RBI.

Carlisle 4, Mifflin County 0
CARLISLE - Between Isaiah Lipport's speed and control, the Thundering Herd pitcher gave Mifflin County's batters plenty of trouble at the plate Wednesday as his 12 stikeouts led to the Huskies' first loss of the season, 4-0.
"He just gave us fits at the plate. The most difficult part about the 12 strikeouts is that half of them were looking," Mifflin County coach Travis Zook said, explaining that he would have liked for his team to be more aggressive on two strikes.
John Michael Maclay recorded the Huskies' only hit, while Peyton Reesman took the loss while recording five strikeouts and six walks.
In JV action, Mifflin County won 11-7. Ty Bodtorf had the win, Drew Williams was awarded the save and Ross Underhill led the way at the plate with a 3-for-3 effort.

Line Mountain 12, Juniata 1 (5 innings)
HERNDON - Line Mountain pounded the ball Wednesday afternoon, and Juniata had no answer as the Indians dropped the Tri-Valley League baseball contest in five innings, 12-1.
Between Juniata pitchers Ty Treaster, Korey Martin and Dalton Nealman, the Indians gave up 19 hits to the Eagles, while only collecting two of their own. Their lone run of the game was scored when Treaster put the ball in play for one of those two hits, then the Juniata run was scored on a Line Mountain error.
"They hit really, really well. They had a lot of things fall in the gap," Juniata coach Nick Beward said of Line Mountain.
Juniata (1-4, 1-3) travels to Newport on Saturday.
East Juniata 4, Halifax 0
COCOLAMUS - After playing four and a half innings of scoreless baseball against Tri-Valley League opponent Halifax, East Juniata scored four runs in the bottom of the inning to put the game away, 4-0.
East Juniata's Bailey Coder got the win and Jeremy Pannebaker was awarded the save, while Hunter Hilinski's troubles from the mound for Halifax were partially responsible for the Tigers' win.
Hilinski had four strikeouts, but he also walked four and hit three batters in his seven innings of work.
"In the inning that we scored our four runs, we had several hits as well as several walks and a hit batter, and that pretty much was the story line," East Juniata coach Tim Brubaker explained.
East Juniata's RBIs went to Nick Lorenz (2), Mason Hambright and Pannebaker.
The Tigers (2-1, 2-1) travel to Lancaster Country Day on Friday.
