YORKVILLE — On Tuesday, the Hubs defeated Yorkville 4-3 picking up their first win of the season and their first conference win since 2011.

“We had a couple bad innings here or there,” said Rochelle head coach Nick Reineck. “But overall I thought we played a really good game. The big thing was we didn’t put anybody on base that didn’t earn it. That was nice to see.”

The Hubs took a few innings to get going and found themselves on the wrong end of a 3-0 game going into the top of the fifth inning.

“We didn’t hit very well,” Reineck admitted, “but we were making plays on routine balls, and we took advantage of Yorkville’s mistakes nicely as a team. Our defense was really good overall.”

With one runner on, Dylan Hopkins hit a two-run double to put the Hubs on the board before both Aaron Mehrings and Todd Highland hit sacrifice flies to send runners home and take the 4-3 lead.
