Mustangs win series 2-1 after dominant win tonight

07/15/2017 9:48 PM -

The Mustangs offense was firing on all cylinders as they left Jefferson City dazed and confused in a 9-3 victory.


The Renegades began the game by putting the leadoff runner on base from then on all the help came from the Mustangs as a passed ball and two wild pitches got the scoring started early in the Renegades favor.

 

What many would take as a small defeat, the Mustangs took it as fuel to the fire. Josh Lincoln started the momentum swing when he took first on a walk. Then he took second almost instantly. A wild pitch put Lincoln on third and then a walk to Brady Anderson put runners on both corners. A fielder's choice from Colton Pogue knotted the game at one a piece and put Anderson at second, where he would be driven in soon after by a Josh Williams double to give the Mustangs an early 2-1 advantage.

 

The rest of this game was the Mustangs and the Renegades were just playing in it as the momentum brought the blowout to life in the third. The two out rally was something to behold as luck and skill came into play to give the Mustangs the advantage. The next three batters for the Mustangs were able to reach safely with a combination of a walk and a pair of singles. A dropped third strike on Derek Hussey allowed everyone to advance to make the score 3-1. This error for the Renegades proved costly as Kaleb Reid lined a single to right field to put the score at 5-1 Mustangs.

 

The onslaught didn’t stop there as the Mustangs grabbed two more runs in the fifth inning. With bases loaded the Mustangs got a little more help from the Renegades when a fielder’s choice turned into a two run play thanks to the Renegades defense sailing the ball over the first baseman's head to make the score 7-1.

 

Jefferson City took one more run off of starting pitcher Jake VanVacter in the seventh when they scored on a one out sac fly to make the score 7-2. VanVacter finished with seven innings pitched only giving up two runs on five hits and compiling 12 strikeouts.

 

The Renegades took one back in the ninth, but it wouldn’t even come close to enough as the Mustangs clinched the rubber match 9-3. This game puts the Mustangs at 29-11 on the season with a MINK leading record of 23-10 in conference play. While on the other end the Renegades are now 16-21 and 13-21 in MINK League play.

 

The Mustangs are set to return to action tomorrow as they go on the road to face off against the Nevada Griffons. Eleazar Rojas takes the mound in his first start of the season.
