The bats were alive and well as the Mustangs dismantled their opponents and left them in awe as they secured a 18-1 win.
With bases loaded, two outs, and only a strike to give Drew Standifer stood strong at the batter’s box, already 3 for 4 up to that point and a homerun shy of the cycle. Then the once in a lifetime moment happened for Drew as he laced one over the right field fence giving him the first cycle in Mustangs history.
Standifer stood at home plate four bases later as the player of the game, finishing four for five with seven RBI’s and the cycle.
From start to finish the game was never close as the Mustangs struck early and often. The Mustangs hit the ground running as they scored three runs in the first inning through a two run double down the left field line from Louis Mele. They didn’t wait long as the next batter, Standifer singled to score Mele. The Arrows searched for any sort of momentum with a single run the next inning, but that would be all that Mustangs pitcher John Millan would give up.
Millan would go on to shutdown any sort of hope for the Arrows at that point as he went six innings giving up only one run on three hits and compiling seven strikeouts.
The third inning began with Mustangs leading 3-1, but a blowout would soon follow as five straight hits would lead to a six run inning.
