The game leaned in the direction of the Mustangs for much of the game as John Millan pitched through seven innings, allowing just two runs in his first six.
Millan returned to the field for his seventh inning at mound with just one hit against him. As wind rolled into Phil Welch the Generals shot back scoring four runs.
Coach Matt Johnson called upon Jake Purl to close the inning, but officials sent the game into rain delay shortly after with two outs recorded.
Play resumed shortly after with the Mustangs trailing 6 to 2.
Purl returned to the mound following the delay, and shut down the final two Generals at bat.
The Mustangs attempted for a late game comeback as three consecutive batters found gaps in the defense loading the bases.
Drew Standifer came to the plate with one grand slam to his name already this season with the crowd hopeful for another. With a full count Standifer delivers a shot to the wall, scoring three and putting himself just 90 feet from home as the tying run.
As Josh Williams stepped to the plate fans held their breath knowing a sacrifice fly would tie it.
A hard hit ball to the first baseman was knocked down as Standifer broke for home. The throw to the plate would be just in time as Standifer’s head-first slide came up just short of scoring, leaving Chris Danielson of the Generals one out away from ending the game.
The next Mustang batter would ground out to third and the comeback would be halted.
The Mustangs are now 12-5 overall, and sit third place in the MINK North Division. Both teams meet for the fifth time this week Friday at 7 p.m.
