Mustangs Take Two vs Branson Nationals

06/05/2015 11:35 PM -
1614 fans came out to an early 5:30 start at Historic Phil Welch to watch the St. Joe Mustangs take on the Branson Nationals in a double header. It was a beautiful day for baseball and for ice cream, with fans enjoying their share of a 200ft banana split between the two game set.
For game one, Mustangs pitcher Preston Felgate faced off against Nationals’ Jacob Keltner. The Mustangs wasted no time getting their bats going against shaky Nationals’ pitching. They scored one run in each of the first three innings, gaining an early lead.
The St. Joe offense scored again in the fourth. This time, the runs came in bunches. The inning started with a Jerry Houston broken bat single, and was followed by a single off the bat of Orencio Fisher. Anthony Maselli followed them up with a two RBI triple. Jackson Schurnbursh wrapped up the scoring, knocking in Maselli with an RBI groundout.
The Mustangs’ pitching staff continued to show their shutdown ability, allowing only one collective run after eight shutout innings. They cruised to victory, securing their sixth win of the season. Felgate earned the win, and Nationals’ pitcher Keltner took the loss.
In game two, the Mustang offense exploded for five runs in the first inning, virtually securing the victory in the shortened seven inning contest. St. Joseph sent all nine men to the plate in an inning that featured singles by Jacob Richardson, Evan McDonald, and Jerry Houston. Trent Hill, Jordan Powell, and Dillon Mattice also reached with three consecutive walks.
St. Joe ultimately won game two by a score of 6-4. Trent Kinney earned the win as well as the Player of the Game Award, while Branson’s Jayme Lovelace wore the loss.
The Mustangs proved once again that they excel in all facets of the game. The team combined for twelve stolen bases in the two games, as well making many nice defensive plays. The most remarkable of which was a diving grab by Scott Braren on a ball tailing away from him in the right field corner.

With two exciting wins over the Nationals the Mustangs improved to 7-1, retaining their lead of the North Division.
