Mustangs Sweep Carroll Merchants

05/28/2015 11:19 PM -

  The Mustangs came into game two versus the Carroll Merchants looking for the sweep. Pitching for the Mustangs was Tanner Smith, who provided an effective outing. Smith allowed one hit while going five scoreless innings, despite five walks. 

Both offenses laid stagnant for the first third of the contest until the Mustangs broke the tie in the fourth inning with the help Josh Cassidy’s speed. It all started with a Cassidy single, which he followed with a steal of second base. He then scored, hustling from second base to home plate on a sharply hit single by Scott Braren, and they never looked back. 
The Mustangs turned the tightly contested game into what felt like batting practice in the bottom of the sixth inning where they scored seven runs, earning a commanding lead and handing Merchants’ pitcher Matt Lasley his first loss of the summer. It was an offensive display featuring eight Mustangs who reached base safely. They put up two more runs in the eighth to further their lead, virtually securing the victory. 
Pitching proved to be of equal importance, as the Mustangs staff threw a combined shutout, allowing just one hit total. “The big thing today [was] pitching. When [your] pitching puts up zeros it puts the offense in a good spot” said Josh Cassidy, the player of the game going 3-5 with two runs scored, two RBIs, and a stolen base.
Mustangs’ pitcher Tanner Smith earned his first win of the season as the Mustangs swept the two game set from the Carroll Merchants in spectacular fashion. The Mustangs are putting up impressive offensive numbers and look to continue doing so in the days to come.
