MORAVIA — The Mohawks were finally able to get back on the field after a couple of rainouts and would pick up their first win of the season on Thursday.

Cason Butz started the game on the mound, going three innings while giving up three runs on five hits with two strikeouts. Hunter Arbogast would replace Butz and get the win after pitching the remaining four innings giving up one run on two hits with four walks and five strikeouts.

The middle of the Mohawk lineup did a lot of damage with Wil Martin, Casey Smith and Arbogast each having two hits on the night. They also got a good contribution from eighth grader Riley Hawkins, who went 1-for-2 with two RBIs at the bottom of the order.

Moravia (1-2) travels to face Moulton-Udell (1-1) on Friday at 6 p.m.
