Standifer bomb carries Mustangs over Bombers

07/07/2017 9:22 PM -

After trailing early on, a home run by Drew Standifer helped launch the Mustangs (25-8, 18-7 MINK) into a 4-2 victory over the Sedalia Bombers (14-13, 14-13 MINK).

Starting pitcher Osvaldo Raya found trouble in the first inning loading the bases with one out. Following a visit from coach Matt Johnson, Raya found command shortening damage to just one run.

The Mustangs had opportunities to score in the bottom of the second and fourth with two runners in scoring position each time, but batting failed to come alive. Raya stayed in command during this time, supporting chances of a Mustang charge to take the lead.

Brady Anderson led off with a single to start the top of the fifth, before Drew Standifer hit his fourth homerun of the year to right field. With two outs on recorded, Richardson found first base. Jeremiah Figueroa singled to left field, advancing Richardson to third base. Richardson scored on a balk, before a hit by Lincoln was caught ending the inning with a 3-1 Mustangs lead.

The Bombers found success against Raya again in the top of the sixth, as the first three batters advanced to base. Raya gave up one run, before being pulled from the game with two outs.

Raya lasted five and two third innings.  He allowed four hits, striking out five. Eleazar Rojas entered for Raya, recording the the final out of the inning. He continued to pitch through the seventh, striking out one allowing one base hit before being pulled with two outs.

Colton Kenagy came into the game after, bringing two into scoring position before the final out was recorded in left field, keeping the Mustangs’ 3-2 lead.

Lincoln singled for the Mustangs in the bottom of the eighth with one out before Santilli arrived to first. Lincoln arrived home with Anderson at bat, giving the Mustangs a 4-2 lead heading into the bottom of the Ninth.

Nikko Pablo closed the game for the Mustangs  in his tenth appearance of the year, keeping his 0.00 ERA heading into the Mustangs victory despite bringing one runner into scoring position with two outs

The homestand continues tomorrow night against the Nevada Griffons. Jake VanVacter (2-2, 4.59 ERA) is scheduled to take mound for the Mustangs.

The night will be highlighted by Public Safety night with a pregame Firefighters and Police softball game. Gates open at 5, with the softball game starting at 5:15. All police officers and firefighters will receive two free general admission tickets with an ID.

Olive Garden will be on site, with chances of earning prizes throughout the game. A Mosaic Life Care Fireworks Spectacular will cap off the night.
