Shutout in honor of Gerson

The St Joe Mustangs had a jam-packed Saturday, starting with a future Mustangs expedition game and transitioning into the announcement that Mustangs Founder Dan Gerson would be introduced into the St Joe Sports Hall of Fame.

Mustangs owner Ky Turner welcomed Gerson into the Hall of Fame and kicked off a game against the Jefferson City Renegades with a DG behind the plate for the founder.

On the mound today was starting pitcher Aron Harrington. Harrington went into the first and ended it quickly, going three up and three down, throwing eight pitches.

The Mustangs started quickly, with right fielder Noah Bodenhaus lacing a double to left field. Bodenhaus's double was followed by shortstop Mason Holton's double to lead in the first inning 1-0.

Harrington held the Renegades again in the second, third, and fourth innings, facing eleven batters and picking up six strikeouts in three innings.

In the fourth inning, designated hitter Trevor McCollum was hit by a pitch, stole second, and put himself in scoring position. Center fielder Jordan Black singled to put McCollum across to plate, extending the Mustangs' lead to 2-0.

Harrington gave the Renegades zero ground in the fifth as he gave up a walk and picked up another strikeout on nineteen pitches.

In the bottom of the fifth, catcher Kyle Hepburn crushed a pitch to deep left field for a solo home run, extending the Mustangs' lead to 3-0.

Harrington muscled through the sixth inning, picking up another strikeout and giving up a hit.

Black walked to start the bottom of the sixth and advanced to second on Logan Miller's single. Bodenhaus singled to the Renegades pitcher, loading the bases for the Mustangs. After a wild pitch, all Mustangs advanced, with Black scoring to extend the lead to 4-0. Holton skied a ball to center field to allow Miller to score from third, making the score 5-0.

Relief pitcher Frank Gall came into the seventh, giving up a walk and a single but getting out of the inning untouched and picking up a strikeout.

Relief pitcher Michael Infranca went 1-2-3 in the eighth after picking up two strikeouts.

Closing pitcher Denton Biller came into the ninth inning, picking up two strikeouts, along with Logan Miller, who had a fantastic catch in center field for the second out. The Mustangs win in a shutout 5-0.

The Mustangs start a road trip tomorrow. Their first stop will be their arch-nemesis from Iowa, the Carrol Merchants, who they play at 4:00 p.m.
