Mustangs pull out the win in an extra innings thriller

06/07/2017 9:48 AM -

The Mustangs and the Sedalia Bombers battled in a back and forth batter friendly shootout, before the Mustangs eventually crowned themselves victors on the road.


The Mustangs outlasted the Bombers as they battled their way to supremacy besting Sedalia in the eleventh inning 11-10.


From the first pitch on, the stride of the game was heading to a heartbreaking finish for one team and a momentum swing for the other, as both teams were coming off of loses. The Bombers were the first to strike as they took advantage of two walks to start the inning combined with a single to take a 1-0 lead. The Mustangs would respond taking full advantage of mistakes two innings later. Brody Santilli was able to earn a walk and manufactured a run with stolen bases and a sacrifice fly from Brady Anderson to tie the game 1-1. The tie didn’t last long as Sedalia came back to claim their lead in the bottom half of the third inning 2-1.


The Mustangs wouldn’t stand for that as they pushed the envelope in the top half of the third to claim a 3-2 lead thanks to a two run double from the number nine hitter Matt Wollnik.


The Mustangs would retain their lead for much of the game as scoring continued to go back and forth. Every time the Mustangs would extended their lead, the Bombers would counter or beat their attack.


The sixth inning was the start of the push as the Mustangs scored three runs on singles by Derek Hussey, Brody Santilli, and Joshua Lincoln. The Bombers brought firepower of their own as they scored two in the bottom half to cut the Mustangs lead to 6-4. The Mustangs would score two runs in both the seventh and eighth, but were answered by Sedalia scoring three in both innings leading up to a game tying single in the bottom half of the eighth.


With the back and forth action all but over the Mustangs were able to push past the stubborn Bomber team. As once again Wollnik stepped up in the top of the 11th and single to right field to score Brett Marr. Kyle Urich would come in to close and shut down any hopes of another comeback. Wollnik would end up finishing three for six with five RBIs along with a walk.


This victory proves to be huge as it puts the Mustangs at 2-1 in MINK League play and an overall record of 5-1. The Mustangs will hope to avenge their lone loss of the season as they host the Clarinda A’s in league play tonight. First pitch is set for 7. Gates open at 5:30.
