SAINT JOSEPH, Mo. – The St. Joseph Mustangs dropped their first non-league game 7-4 on Thursday night to the Kansas City Monarchs after blowing a two run lead in the top of the ninth inning.  

Mustangs’ pitcher Jake Purl came in for the save in the top of the ninth and gave up two runs on a walk and two singles. Purl finished the evening with his second loss of the year, giving up five runs, four earned runs, six hits, on four strikeouts in three innings pitched.

Earlier this year the Monarchs defeated the Kansas City T-Bones 6-5 in Kansas City, Kan.

In the second inning the Mustangs scored their first runs on a two out error by Monarchs’ shortstop Vince Spilker. Mustangs’ first baseman Jacob Hurst and shortstop Matt Wollnik scored in the second after walking.

Right handed pitcher Colton Kenagy started his second game for the Mustangs going six innings with two runs, two earned runs, on three hits, seven walks and two strikeouts.

In the last two games St. Joseph starting pitchers have walked a combined 18 walks.

St. Joe struggled getting on base as the team was no-hit through five innings by Monarchs’ starting pitcher Brett Parsons who was removed in the sixth inning.

The Mustangs had a chance to win the game in the bottom of the tenth inning. With the scored tied 4-4, center fielder Jacob Richardson led off the inning with a walk following by a single by designated hitter Brady Anderson. However, after putting the first two batters on, Monarchs’ left handed pitcher Arron Meade struck out the middle of the order to send the game one more inning.

Returning to Phil Welch Stadium, former St. Joseph Mustang Blake Kolons started in right field for the Monarchs. Kolons went 0-3 with a walk at the plate, recorded a 9-3 double play from the outfield, but on the mound threw two-thirds of the eighth inning giving up an unearned run on a strikeout and two walks.

The Mustangs’ defense was strong tonight as the team turned three double plays, two of which ended an inning.

St. Joe falls to 27-12 with an 18-11 record in the MINK North. The Chillicothe Mudcats entered the evening with a half game over the Mustangs and Sedalia Bombers who are were tied for second in the MINK North.
