St. Joe's Offense Explodes vs Branson

07/11/2015 8:41 PM -
     Love was in the air the Mustangs hosted the first ever wedding in Phil Welch Stadium. They also faced the task of playing the Branson Nationals in double header. In game one, the Mustangs played as the away team, making up a previous rainout. In the first game, Miles Gully, 4-1 with a 4.26 ERA, took the mound for the Mustangs against Branson’s Ryan Logan, 1-0 with a 2.00 ERA.
 
     The Mustangs got on the board early, scoring a run in each of the first two innings to jump out to a 2 run lead. Branson tied the game up in the third tagging Gully for 2 runs. Jerry Houston scored to regain the lead in the 4th inning. The Mustangs tacked on 2 more in the 5th after Brett Bond and Jerry Houston both drove in a run.
 
     Branson responded with an additional 2 runs off Gully in the bottom half of the  5th, but it wasn’t enough as the Mustangs added 6 runs of insurance in the 6th and 7th innings, including 3 RBI’s by Ramsey Scott.
 
     Game two felt more familiar as the Mustangs defense took to the field in the top of the 1st. In this contest, the Mustangs sent Trent Kinney to the hill to shut down the Nationals’ offense, which is exactly what Kinney did. Trent threw 5.2 innings of scoreless ball, allowing only 3 hits while striking out 5. On the bump for the Nationals was Evan Pane. Pane was unable to silence the Mustangs’ hot bats, as they tagged him for 4 runs.
 
     St. Joseph gained the lead after Scott Braren scored the game’s first run in the 2nd inning; however, they did most of their damage in the 4th. The Mustangs scored 3 runs in the 4th after the Mustangs loaded the bases with no outs. Trevor Moeck and Evan McDonald both checked in with RBI’s along with an RBI single by Jacob Richardson. The Mustangs added a single insurance run in the bottom of the 6th handing Steven D’amico a 5-0 lead for the final inning.
 

     The Mustangs erupted offensively, scoring a combined 16 runs in the double header in front of 2,862 fans. The 2 wins brought St. Joseph’s record to 28-12 on the season, extending their division lead and knocking the Nationals out of 1st place in the South.
