Mason Janvrin struck a blazing line drive that narrowly avoided the glove of General’s third baseman Jett Swetland and straddled the left field line. The fifth-inning single scored Zach Perdue for the first Mustang’s run of the game.
Janvrin’s RBI single was all the offense St. Joe could muster on Friday night as it fell to the Ozark Generals 6-1.
Following last night’s offensive explosion the Mustangs had a quiet night at the plate thanks to General’s starting Pitcher Derek Kennell.

Trailing by four runs in the third, Mack Stephenson came on in relief and threw four-solid innings collecting six strikeouts while holding Ozark to just two runs.
