Mustangs Take First Loss in Eight Days at Sedalia

The St. Joseph Mustangs’ winning streak came to an end at six games Tuesday night. Falling 8-5 to the Sedalia Bombers, the Mustangs dropped to 12-6 overall and 11-6 in M.I.N.K. League play. St. Joe now sits in a three-way tie with Clarinda and Carroll for first place in the North Division.


Mustangs catcher Oscar Pegg opened the scoring in the second. His sacrifice fly drove in designated hitter Michael Paule, who had stolen both second and third base. However, the lead was short-lived. Starting pitcher Aron Harrington had escaped a bases-loaded, nobody-out spot in the second, but the third was not so kind to him. Sedalia took a 4-1 lead with four walks, a hit batsman and a two-run double.


With that, Harrington’s night was over after eight walks in three innings. Right-hander Camden Lutz would stabilize the Mustangs over the next three innings, allowing the offense to narrow the deficit with a two-run fourth. But Litz could only put up zeros for so long. The first four Bombers reached base in the seventh, and three came around to score. After Sedalia scored another run in the eighth off Ryker Curry, the Mustangs trailed 8-3.


St. Joe rallied in the ninth, scoring a pair of runs and bringing the tying run to the plate. But Pegg, who had already driven in two, grounded out to end the game.


The Mustangs will finish the road trip Wednesday at the Chillicothe Mudcats. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
