UConn commit and Gov. Mifflin senior Tyler Minick

Gov. Mifflin senior shortstop Tyler Minick is back in attack mode and that's bad news for pitchers across District 3.  "I wasn't expecting people to throw to me so I was taking a lot of fastballs and hanging curveballs. I just need to come out and be more aggressive," said Minick.  The UConn commit blasted his fourth home run of the season in a 12-0 win over Twin Valley in Shillington.  He was 2-for-3 with 3 RBI.  Despite a recent slump, the 2022 Berks County Player of the Year is hitting .450 with a 1.466 OPS.  He leads the club with 23 runs and 17 stolen bases.  Minick is also contributing on the mound with a 1.75 ERA and two saves over twelve innings.  He's getting plenty of help.  Gov. Mifflin racked up 13 hits against the Raiders on Monday.  Bryce Detwiler went 2-for-2 with his team-high fifth homer.  The promising sophomore is batting .545 with eleven extra-base hits.  "He might be the best player in the league right now," Minick told SV Sports' Paul Roberts.  Bloomsburg commit Xander Velez was 3-for-3 which boosted his average to .410.  Jon Radwanski added a pair of hits and knocked in three runs.  The (12-3, 8-1) Mustangs are alone in first place in Division 1 of the Berks League.  They're #2 in the District 3-5A power rankings.  "Everyone is hot right now. Everyone is coming through and they're making big hits," emphasized Minick.  Ethan Grim improved to (4-2) and lowered his ERA to 2.78.  The sophomore right-hander didn't allow a hit over four innings.  Grim struck out five and walked six.  Minick, who played basketball at Gov. Mifflin, gave some predictions for the NBA playoffs.  He also talked about the best dancers on the baseball team.
