Mustangs Rock Renegades

The St Joe Mustangs reinvigorate their win streak, having won five games since their last loss to the Carroll Merchants. Yesterday, the Mustangs battered the Sedalia Bombers in a 5-2 win, and today, they faced the Jefferson City Renegades.


The Mustangs have the Renegades' number after two wins, 3-2 and 3-0. In this game, however, the score was nowhere near close.


The Mustangs returned to their early scoring ways, as in the first inning, the Mustangs didn't need a hit to score a run.


Darius Freeman led off and walked. Mason Holton was then hit, putting runners on first and second. After an error by the Renegades catcher, Holton advanced to second, and Freeman stole second and scored for the Mustang's first.


With Holton on third, Kyle Hepburn singled to score Holton, making the score 2-0 in the first inning.


The Mustangs kept the offense rolling; with the bases loaded, a Renegades wild pitch advanced Freeman to second, Noah Bodenhaus to third, and scoring Trevor McCollum.


Holton blasts a three-run home run with runners on second and third, clearing the bases. Carson Schrack walks, and Hepburn doubles, putting them on second and third. Jeter Mauzey extends the Mustangs' lead with a single that scores Schrack. After Mauzey stole second, Jorden Black reached on a fielder's choice, scoring Hepburn and putting the Mustangs ahead 8-0.


The Renegades racked up a run in the second as a double put the Renegades on the board as they trail 8-1.


Jackson Glueck stepped up in the fourth inning as he doubled to put McCollum and Mauzey across the plate to extend the Mustangs lead 10-1.


The Renegades responded in the sixth as a single put another Renegade across the plate to trail 10-2.


To cap off the Mustangs' offense, McCollum tattoed a ball to double in the eighth, scoring Mauzey and advancing the Mustangs' lead to 11-2.


In the ninth, Tim Teixeira closed out the game for the Mustangs, giving up two hits and giving the Mustangs their sixth win for the streak.


Some highlights for today's game are Holton's second-inning three-run home run, Hepburn going 4-5 at the plate, and Roy Holcomb having the second-best era in the MINK league with 1.71 as he picks up his third win.


The Mustangs return home tomorrow to face the Kansas City Monarchs at 7:00 p.m. for Women's Sports Day.
