A solid finish by the bullpen combined by a home run launched the Mustangs into a 9-4 victory. The win came in front of 5,224 fans, just short of the club’s record of 5,345 set in 2014.
Command issues from starting pitcher John Millan in the fourth and sixth inning put the game within two runs until Kyle Uhrich hit a homerun in the seventh inning extending the Mustangs’ lead to five.
Uhrich finished the game with two hits and three RBIs in five at bats. Josh Williams had one less RBI in four at bats scoring two runs.
The Outlaws suffered from command issues early in the game loading the base twice in the first three innings with just three hits.
Uhrich brought in Louis Mele on an RBI single in the third inning for the first run of the game. Josh WIlliams was sent home on a bases loaded walk Uhrich found his way home moments later prior to the end of the inning.
Millan gave up two runs in the top of the fourth to put the game within two runs. The Mustangs offense backed up his flaws in the bottom of the inning as a RBI single by Williams brought in Santilli. Just before the inning ended, Mele was brought home following a Jacob Richardson RBI single.
Millan’s errors came again in the top of the sixth, but an RBI single by Williams sent Mele home. Williams followed the same path, scoring as Urich celebrated his first home run of the season.
The Mustangs head into a five game road trip 8-2 overall, and 4-2 in MINK League Play. They sit in second place in the MINK North Division.
