Mustangs Bats Fall Silent, Drop 2nd Consecutive Game

St. Joseph dropped its second straight game Saturday night.
07/11/2016 9:12 AM -

SAINT JOSEPH, Mo. – On Saturday night at Phil Welch Stadium the St. Joseph Mustangs totaled six base runners the entire night and lost to the Nevada Griffons 6-1.

Griffons’ starting pitcher Doug Molzahn threw a complete game after giving up a run in the sixth inning off a leadoff double by Mustangs’ second baseman Orencio Fisher. Molzahn struck out seven Mustangs and struck out the side after a leadoff walk in the bottom of the ninth inning.

All of St. Joe’s offense came from the 1-4 hitters with a leadoff walk by designated hitter Kyle Uhrich in the second inning, a fourth inning lead off single by centerfielder Jacob Richardson, and an RBI groundout by third baseman Davey Casciola in the sixth inning. The 5-9 hitters struck out a combined six times with a couple of singles by first baseman Louis Mele and shortstop Matt Wollnik.

Starting in his third game for the Mustangs, John Millan took his first 2016 loss throwing six innings with two earned runs, four hits, three walks, two hit batters, and a strikeout.

Jonathan Lynch continued to struggle against Nevada going a third of an inning with two earned runs on one hit, a walk, and a hit-by- pitch.

The last time St. Joseph and Nevada played on Wednesday evening, the game was held in a tie in at the end of nine innings after the Mustangs blew a five-run lead going into the ninth inning.

Mele cooled off going 1-4 with a couple of strikeouts and a stolen base in the seventh inning.

The last time the Mustangs dropped two in a row was on June 20 with a 6-5 loss to the Sedalia Bombers in game one of a day-night double header.

St. Joe’s record drops to 25-10 with an 18-10 record in the MINK North.
