Mustangs battle back to take 9-7 win at home

06/24/2017 9:46 PM -

Despite a ninth inning scare, a mid game rally by the Mustangs solidified a 9-7 comeback over the Clarinda A’s.

 

After retiring the first six batters of the game, starting pitcher Michael Lydon-Lorson struggled on the mound, giving up five hits to begin the third inning. The A’s took advantage, grabbing a 4-0 lead over the Mustangs.

 

With one out in the bottom of the third,  Clarinda walked Brody Santilli. Santilli advanced to second following a Joshua Lincoln ground out. Soon after, Brady Anderson hit a RBI double bringing Santilli in for the first Mustang run of the game.

 

A double by Drew Standifer brought in Anderson continuing the inning. Josh Williams advanced to second on an RBI double bringing in Anderson, closing the inning with the Mustangs still trailing 4-3.

 

An error at second base on a throw from Lydon-Lorson to Matt Wollnik with two outs in the top of the fourth brought in another run for the A’s, extending their lead to 5-3.

 

The A’s walked Santilli for the second time of the game in the bottom of the fifth. Santilli stole second with Lincoln at bat. The A’s called for a new pitcher soon after.

 

Following the change, Santilli stole to third with Anderson at bat. Anderson advanced to first on a walk, just before a Standifer putout scored Santilli.

 

Anderson stole to third with Williams at bat just before an error brought him home to tie the game 5-5 at the end of the fifth.

 

Easton Fortuna found base for the first time following a walk with one out in the bottom of the sixth. A Wollnick single advanced Fortuna to third, where he scored from following an A’s pitching error with Kaleb Reed at bat.

 

A single by Santilli loaded the bases with no outs. Two consecutive outs brought  Anderson up to bat, who brought in Reed, Wollnick and Santilli but was thrown out trying to stretch his double into a three bagger ending the inning with a Mustangs into a 9-5 lead.

 

The Mustangs pulled Lydon-Lorson from the game after six. He struck out five, and gave up five runs. He had allowed only two runs in his three prior starts.

 

Jake Purl came on, after giving up one run, he claimed his first save of the year.

The Mustangs head to Jefferson City tomorrow as Steve DAmico (0-0, 2.31 ERA) takes the mound against the Renegades marking the start of a four game road trip.
