Mustangs Take Home Opener vs Carroll Merchants

05/28/2015 6:07 PM -

 Spirits were high, and the stands were packed for the St. Joseph Mustang’s home opener. There was a buzz in the air as fans filed into Historic Phil Welch Stadium to watch the Mustangs take on the Carrol County Merchants.

On the bump for the Mustangs was Mitchell Steinhoff. Steinhoff looked strong in his first outing of the season, despite battling some minor command issues in the third where he walked in a run. However he grinded through, and wiggled out of a bases loaded jam.

The Mustangs offense got going early with two runs scored in the second off of a sacrifice fly by Anthony Maselli, and an RBI double by Josh Cassidy. They continued their offensive output again in the third inning when Jacob Richardson scored on a Ramsey Scott single.

Steinhoff found himself in trouble again in the top of the fifth inning when he gave up two walks and two hits, as well as two runs. However, he escaped relatively unharmed, despite again loading the bases.

The game settled in for the next two innings until the Mustangs scored the go ahead run off of a wild play showcasing the speed of Orencio Fisher. After Fisher stole second, he scored on a Jacob Richardson infield single.

The next inning, the Mustangs offense exploded for three more runs, setting the tone for the final inning. Brandon Feldmann pitched the ninth, giving up one run and earning the save.

Anthony Yacovetta earned the win, while the Merchant’s Trevor Buttermore took the loss. It was an exciting win, hopefully setting the tone for the last of a two game set against Carrol County.
