Mustangs Hot Start Halted by Griffons

06/01/2014 12:27 AM -

                St. Joseph came into the contest winning five games in six days while Nevada had played only one game the night before. Dixon Marble made his first start of the season looking to continue the hot start of the Mustangs pitching staff.

The Mustangs had not trailed in a game this season but found themselves trailing after the Griffons got on the board quickly. Nevada’s Cody Farrell drove in the first run of the game with a single. Marble would get out of the bases loaded jam after hitting two batters in the inning. The Griffons would add three more runs in the third, one in the 5th and 7th innings and the final 2 in the 8th.

The St. Joseph bats were quite tonight for the most part. They were only able to muster 8 hits in the game and didn’t record their first hit until Ryan Abernathy got his first of what would end up being a 2 for 4 night before leaving in the 7th inning with an injury.

The Mustangs got to within three in the fourth inning when Joe Koerper picked up the teams second hit of the night and would later be driven in by Zac Johnson. That would be all the scoring for the Mustangs.

The pitching staff that had performed so well in the five previous games, struggled with command most of the night. The Mustangs would walk seven total batters and record three wild pitches. Marble picked up the lose tonight going 5.0 innings giving up 7 hits, 5 runs and striking out 4.

The Mustangs fall to 1-1 in the MINK League and will travel to Nevada tomorrow for a rematch with the Griffons. First pitch set for seven p.m.
