Pitching kept the bats quiet for much of the game as the Mustangs battled the Griffons to a 11-0 victory in the MINK League opener.
A solid start by starting pitcher Michael Lydon-Lorson combined with the Mustang’s first home run of the season launched the Mustangs into a complete game shutout.
Lydon-Lorson struck out Nevada 11 times. He allowed just three hits. This marks the second straight year where he has thrown a complete game shutout in his first start of the season.
A wild pitch in the second inning gave left fielder Jacob Richardson the opportunity to score from third base. An error on a throw to second base also gave Jeremiah Figueroa the chance to advance home giving the Mustangs a 2-0 lead.
The Griffons threatened with a double with no outs in the seventh inning, but the Glencoe, Mo native battled back keeping the next three batters at home.
St. Joe found themselves on base in the seventh inning as Richardson advanced to first base. A few moments later, Figueroa brought in Richardson on an RBI double with one out on board.
The power continued as Brady Anderson was brought in on a RBI single by Kyle Urich. Pitch runner Joshua Lincoln and Figueroa joined second baseman Matt Wollnick before the five run inning came to an end.
Drew Standifer hit a two run homer before in the eighth inning shutting down any chance of a Griffon comeback. Wollnick scored the final point of the game.
