SAINT JOSEPH, Mo. – On Friday night at Phil Welch Stadium, the St. Joseph Mustangs flustered the Branson Nationals in a 3-0 win in front of 2,142 fans.

Throwing 82 pitches, Michael Lydon-Lorson started his fifth game for St. Joe and earned his third win of the season. Lydon-Lorson struck out nine Nationals in eight innings only giving up two hits, retiring 16 of his last 17 batters faced, and sitting down 11 Nationals straight to end his outing.

The Mustangs mustered three runs on the night on three hits and five walks.

Every one of St. Joe’s runners who scored involved a wild pitch or passed ball at some point on the base paths.

Mustangs’ left fielder Orencio Fisher led off the game in the first inning with a single and scored on a passed ball to give St. Joe a 1-0 lead into the second. The Mustangs struck for another run in the second inning and one more run in the bottom of the fourth when third baseman Davey Casciola started things off with a double. Casciola then moved to third base on a wild pitch and scored on a passed ball.

In the ninth inning, Mustangs’ right handed pitcher Matt Diaz relieved Lydon-Lorson earning the save throwing one complete inning with a strikeout.

Moving from the leadoff position in the batting order to the number six spot, Mustangs’ shortstop Evan McDonald went 1-3 with a single in the fourth inning.

The Mustangs tallied only one RBI on a ground ball out to second base by catcher Brady Anderson in the second inning that scored McDonald from third.

Starting in right field Jeremiah Figueroa drew two walks going 0-1 on the night with a ground out to third base.

St. Joe stole two bases advancing on three wild pitches and two passed balls. Figueroa was the only Mustang caught stealing.

Of the two hits given up by St. Joseph one was a third inning double by Nationals’ first baseman Isaiah Martinez.

Cody Widman was given the loss after throwing seven innings and giving up three runs that were earned to the Mustangs on five strikeouts and five walks.

St. Joseph improves to 28-12 with a 19-12 record in the MINK North. The Nationals and Mustangs continue their two game series tomorrow night with first pitch at 7 p.m.
