Michael Lydon-Lorson wheeled and dealed his way to seven scoreless innings as bats came alive in the Mustangs 8-4 victory. The team also showed dominance on the bases, stealing six times.
With the trend of early offensive power continuing, the Mustangs were able to muster three runs in the bottom of the first inning as speed and clutch hitting led the charge.
To become the early momentum leadoff hitter Brody Santilli advanced onto the base path. Soon after, Brady Anderson followed with a single bringing in Santilli for the first run of the game.
The Mustangs weren’t done there as stolen bases and errors allowed Brett Marr to score. Drew Standifer earned a fielder’s choice to score Anderson just before the inning came to an end.
The power continued in the third inning as Louis Mele had a ground rule double to deep center bringing in Drew Standifer. Mele was brought in a few moments later following another ground rule double by Jacob Richardson. Jerimiah Figueroa singled to bring in Richardson shortly after making it 7-0.
The Outlaws were not able to muster any comeback as Lorson allowed just six hits compiling nine strikeouts. Bill Olson gave up three Outlaw runs in the bottom of the ninth just before Colton Kenagy came in to close the game.
The Mustangs are now 7-2 overall, and sit 4-2 in MINK League play as they hope to take the series going into the last night of the three game series tomorrow at Phil Welch. First pitch is set for 7 p.m.
