Mustangs and Griffons Suspended Heading to 10th Inning

St. Joseph and Nevada will resume their game on July 20 at Phil Welch Stadium in the top of the 10th inning.
07/06/2016 7:57 PM -

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -  A furious comeback by the Nevada Griffons in the top of the ninth inning stretched Wednesday's game against the Mustangs long enough for it to be suspended.

Trailing 9-4 as the ninth began, Nevada used two hits, one error, three walks and a hit batter to knot the game 9-9.

St. Joe threatened in the bottom half with runners on the corners and two out, but Jacob Richardson was caught stealing to end the frame.

At that time, darkness forced umpires to suspend the game. It will resume on July 20 before a regularly scheduled 7pm game between the teams.

Darkness became an issue and led to a 5:30pm start after a storm rolled through northwest Missouri on Tuesday night. A blown transformer killed all of the stadium lights. All indications are that the transformer will be fixed in time for Thursday's MINK League All-Star Game festivities starting at 5:15pm.

The Nevada rally washes out an opportunity for starting pitcher Jason Blanchard to earn the win. Blanchard labored through the first two innings allowing three runs on three hits and two walks, but settled in to keep the Griffons scoreless in his final four innings of work.

Louis Mele paced the Mustangs with another three hit night and three RBIs. Orencio Fisher and Davey Casciola also added two hits through the game's first nine innings.
