From eject happy umpires to eleven total batters hit, the real highlight of the night happened when in the fifth when Brett Marr added four RBIs to his resume in one swing.
Marr took these RBIs and more as he finished the game with nothing, but a spectacular offensive display to show for, as he racked up seven runs batted in on a five for five night.
Despite hitting batters at the plate, southpaw Jake VanVacter threw for six innings allowing five hits, striking out four. He gave up two runs in the first inning.
The Mustangs struck in the third inning, as Drew Sandifer started off the three run cap with a RBI single, shortly after craziness ensued as Mele scored on a wild pitch then glanced back at the catcher, and without hesitation the umpire sent him packing. Mustangs tacked on one more before the end of the inning as a rundown allowed another runner to cross the plate and give the Mustangs a 3-2 lead.
Marr’s grand slam marked the end point of any chance of the game finishing close, as the Mustangs scored 17 runs in the final four innings. Seven runs alone in the fifth inning behind Marr’s grand slam.
The Mustangs close off their home stand against Mustangs alumni tomorrow night at 7 p.m.
