Mustangs drop a tough one at home

06/23/2017 9:28 PM -

The Bombers outlasted the Mustangs as a five run sixth inning rally pushed Mustangs starting pitcher Jake VanVactor to the limits in a 6-2 defeat.


The Mustangs hit the ground running as the Bombers fell victim to the cardinal sin of baseball, walking the first batter of the inning. With a runner on first and one out catcher Brady Anderson stepped in ready to make the Bombers pay. On the first pitch Anderson hammered one over the right field wall to gift the Mustangs with an early 2-0 lead in the first inning.


Pitchers dominated the next few innings, until Mustangs starting pitcher Jake VanVacter suffered a scare when the third inning began with a leadoff triple. VanVacter became locked in after that as he would go on to strike out the side to end the inning and strike out the next three after that. Two innings later the Bombers were able to finally get something on the board as an error on Colton Pogue allowed the Sedalia runner on second to score, cutting the lead to 2-1 in the fifth.


As the sixth reared its head, VanVacter fell victim to the Bombers offense as his dominance dissipated and turned to vulnerability. With the first three batters reaching base the momentum swung towards Sedalia. The Bombers tied the game soon after with a fielder’s choice, then the floodgates opened as Sedalia scored four more runs on a infield single, a single, and a two RBI double. VanVacter only got one out in that inning before he was replaced by reliever Nikko Pablo, who shut down the next two batters to limit the damage. VanVacter ended his day at 5.1 innings pitched while allowing eight hits and compiling a total of ten strikeouts.


From then on it was a relievers game as both sides didn’t allow anything more for the remainder of the game. Allowing the Bombers to shut the door and close out the game to secure the 6-2 victory. This lose brings the Mustangs to 17-6 overall and 12-6 in MINK League play, while the Sedalia Bombers bump their record up to 10-8 on the season.
