Mustangs Dominate in Win Over Clarinda As

05/30/2015 12:37 AM -


In the first contest of the year between the St. Joseph Mustangs and the Clarinda As, it was Mustangs’ pitcher Preston Felgate versus Alex Ernestine. Both physical, power pitchers; it looked as though we were in for a pitchers’ duel.
On a night where rain threatened to cut the game short, scoring early was key. The Mustangs did just that, scoring five runs in five innings, including a big three run first thanks to a couple costly errors by the Clarinda defense. The scoring started with Orencio Fisher coming home on a pass ball. Anthony Maselli scored next, thanks to a Trent Hill single. Ramsey Scott finished the scoring in the bottom of the first after Evan McDonald was allowed to reach on an error by the Clarinda second baseman.
The rain held off until after the game, but the Mustangs’ bats did not. They scored two more runs in the seventh and handed a 7-0 lead to what has been a very dominant pitching staff. Mustangs’ pitchers have given up only four runs through three contests. The staff has thrown 18 consecutive scoreless innings, and boast a team ERA of 1.33. Preston Felgate was the Mustangs’ Player of the Game, as well as the pitcher on record. Felgate earned the win, going 6.0 innings and giving up only two hits and 1 walk.
Clarinda As pitcher Alex Ernestine took the loss, giving up three runs (two earned) in 2.0 innings. The glaring difference between these two clubs can be seen in the pitching staffs. Although it is a small sample size, comparing Clarinda’s 5.63 team ERA to the aforementioned Mustangs’ mark tells the tale of this one sided affair.
The Mustangs continue to show that they have a roster comprised of many talented two-way players. They have made dazzling defensive plays, and impressed with their bats. They are starting the season as hot as can be, and hope to continue clicking in all three phases of the game.
