The Magazine Rattlers logged their first win last week in the middle of a series of three games in three days.

The Rattlers took down Mulberry 17-7 for the win, a day after a heartbreaking, 6-5 loss to Hackett.

The Rattlers completed the week with a senior day loss to Danville 12-2 on Wednesday in a game moved from Thursday in hopes of preventing a rainout in the final week of the regular season.

Rattlers 17 Mulberry 7

Magazine took a 1-0 first inning lead after Reese Nietert singled with two down. He eventually scored on an error before Josh Brackett could drive him in with a single.

Brady Watson singled and scored in the second but that would cut a Yellow Jacket lead to 4-2 and Mulberry went on to open a 6-2 lead.

A nine run fourth took care of that. In addition to six walks, a hit batter and an error, the Rattlers got hits from Michael Boersma, Nietert, Brackett, Ryan Robinson and Watson.

Brackett had his third hit, Watson his second, and William King got into the attack in the fifth.

Boersma went the distance on the mound for the win.

Hackett 6 Rattlers 5

Magazine had a lead at the latest point of a game to that point of the season but inexperience reared its head helping Hackett to escape with a 6-5 win.

The Rattlers led 5-4 after Reese Nietert sat down the 2-3-4 hitters in the Hackett lineup on just seven pitches in the top of the sixth inning.

In the bottom half William King led off by smashing an Ethan Slavens pitch to the gap in left center for an apparent double.

But, King was called out for missing first base and the Rattlers would go quietly.

Slavens would pick up the win in relief of Tyler Satterfield.

In the top of the seventh Cash Oliver singled off Nietert, on in relief of Josh Brackett, but Nietert got Avery Hester to fly softly to center but the ball fell to the ground when Tim Stephens and Ryan Robinson collided to put runners at second and third.

Michael Boersma came on and struck out pinch hitter Jesse Esparza but Slavens put down a bunt against a drawn in infield that tied the game because Boersma wound up with nowhere to go with the ball.

Boersma got Jake Fisher to pop out in foul territory on the first base side of the field but both first baseman Cameron Raggio and Brackett went for the ball, leaving the plate uncovered and Hester scored the go-ahead run from third.

Hackett scored twice in the second inning but the Rattlers tied it with one run scoring on a passed ball third strike and another on a ground ball by King.

Hackett went back in front by a run in the third but Robinson singled home the tying run in the bottom of the inning.

The Hornets got a run in the fourth on a sacrifice fly but had Layne Dennis thrown out at the plate on a relay from Dan Witt as Dennis was trying to score from first on a soft single.

Magazine went in front in the home half with on run scoring on a ground out by Boersma and the other on a single by Witt.

Danville 12 Rattlers 2

After Brady Watson worked a 1-2-3 first inning, needing only seven pitches, the Rattlers got a single from Dan Witt and a double from Reese Nietert and had two in scoring position.

A walk to Watson loaded the bases but a short popup and a strike out ended the inning.

A two out error opened the door for the Little Johns to take a 2-0 lead in the second and there was another error in the third while the Little Johns built a 5-0 lead.

It was 12-0 going to the bottom of the fifth when senior Zach Sloan worked a walk, Michael Boersma did so as well and errors allowed both Witt and Nietert to reach and Sloan and Boersma to score.

A single by William King loaded the bases but the Rattlers could not get another run home to push the game into a sixth inning.
