The Jordan Hubmen have won five games in a row to improve to 8-3 on the season and 7-2 in the Minnesota River Conference.

That MRC record puts them in a tie for first place along with Southwest Christian. Le Sueur-Henderson is right behind them with a 6-2 record.

To get to 7-2 in the conference, Jordan swept a doubleheader with Mayer Lutheran last Thursday and then defeated Norwood-Young America on Monday.

Against Norwood at the Mini-Met, Jordan trailed 3-1 after the top of the fourth inning but scored six unanswered runs in the final three innings to win 7-3.

Kyle Hvidsten gave Jordan a 1-0 lead in the first inning when he doubled home Jonathan Huss. Norwood plated two runs in the third and another in the fourth to go up 3-1.

In the bottom of the fourth, Ryan Friedges and Micheal Lambrecht started the inning with a walk and hit by pitch. Noah Schmitt singled home Friedges to cut the lead to 3-2 and then Logan St. Michaels doubled home both Lambrecht and Schmitt to give Jordan the 4-3 lead.

In the sixth inning, St. Michaels drove in Adam Kreuser and Reagan Koch and Huss drove in two more runs to put the final score at 7-3. Dristin Biehn earned the win on the mound for Jordan by pitching four strong innings. He gave up three runs on five hits.

Last Thursday, Jordan defeated Mayer Lutheran 11-0 and 8-2 in a doubleheader at the Mini-Met. In game one, Kreuser dominated on the mound for Jordan as he gave up just two hits in five innings to earn the victory.

While Kreuser was keeping the Mayer Lutheran bats silent, Jordan pounded out 13 hits. The Hubmen led 1-0 after the first inning and then went up 3-0 in the third, which included a home run by Hvidsten.

They blew the game wide open in the fourth as they scored six times. Hvidsten drove in two runs in that inning. Hvidsten finished off his great game with a two-run home run in the fifth to put the final score at 11-0. Hvidsten finished the game with five RBIs on 3 for 4 hitting with two home runs.

Jordan carried that momentum into the second game as it won 8-2 and scored seven of those eight runs in the first two innings. They led 4-1 after the first inning as Friedges, Lambrecht and JT McDermid had RBIs in that inning.

The lead grew to 7-1 after the second inning, with Friedges driving in two of those runs.

Hvidsten pitched six innings for the Hubmen to earn the win. He gave up just four hits and one run.
