As the scoring began so did the momentum as the Mustangs scored six of their nine runs in two innings. The start of the rout began in the third when Josh Lincoln lead off the inning with a single then the next batter moved him into scoring position with a groundout. Then Brady Anderson decided to take matters into his own hands with a bloop single to left field to give the Mustangs the early 1-0 advantage.
From hope to none was the difference in the fourth as the Mustangs serged and took the Bombers pitching for a ride as they scored five runs. The five run rally started when the Bombers allowed the first three runners to reach base safely through a single, hit by pitch, and a walk. That wasn’t all as Easton Fortuna came up and hit a single to bring a runner in to make the score 2-0. The Mustangs kept it going as two batters later Matt Wollnik doubled in the gap to plate two more runners. Brady Anderson added another as he hit a sac fly to score Josh Lincoln, then the inning was rounded out by a Colton Pogue double to score Wollnick.
The Mustangs would add more insurance in the sixth and seventh with another RBI single in the sixth by Anderson. In the seventh a groundout from Patrick Dillon and a single from Jeremiah Figueroa left the score 9-2 after the Bombers scored two in the eighth. The Bombers would score one more in the ninth to finish the score out at 9-3.
As the offense soared so did the pitching as starting pitcher Joshua Monson cruised through seven innings of work giving up five hits and only one earned run.
The Mustangs (24-8) will face off against the Joplin Outlaws Wednesday in the final game before the MINK League All-Star game Thursday. Osvaldo Raya will toe the rubber against the outlaws, Raya is 4-1 on the season with a 2.89 era.
