Mustangs offense explodes in huge win at home

07/21/2017 9:39 PM -

Run support outweighed a sloppy start by Joshua Monson in a 12-6 Mustangs (32-13, 26-12 MINK) victory over the Nevada Griffons (20-23, 20-20 MINK).

Monson struggled in the top of the first loading the bases with one out, leading to a meeting with coach Matt Johnson.


He managed to fight his way out of the inning without damage, but ended up allowing one run in the top of the second inning giving the Griffons a 1-0 advantage.


The lead didn't last long, as the Mustangs responded in the bottom of the second.


Jeremiah Figueroa lead off with a single to centerfield. Mike Foley singled to left center field, before a Joshua Lincoln sacrifice fly advanced the two into scoring position.


A Kaleb Reid RBI single brought Figueroa in for the first Mustang run. Reid continued on base stealing to second, advancing to third after the Griffons walked Brody Santilli loading the bases with one out.


Matt Wollnik advanced to second base on a bad throw bringing in Foley to give the Mustangs a 2-1 lead at the end of the inning.


Monson gave up one run in the top of the third to tie the game, but the Mustangs responded again.


Colton Pogue singled, then stole to second. Pogue continued to advance to third on a sac fly by Josh Williams. Pogue scored on a Figueroa RBI single with one out. Figueroa continued to advance to second, then third following a wild pitch. Lincoln doubled to score Figueroa, giving the Mustangs a 4-2 lead with two outs.


Lincoln was caught at home for the third out, injuring Nixa’s pitcher in a slide.


Brody Santilli advanced to first on a bunt in the top of the fourth. A hit to the far left field wall scored Santilli, extending the Mustangs lead to 5-3.


Johnson pulled Monson with one out in the top of the fifth. He recorded three hits, but struck out just one. AJ Martinez entered to pitch a scoreless 2.2 innings for the Mustangs.


The Mustangs ran away with the game in the bottom of the fifth as Figueroa, Lincoln, Reid and Santilli found base giving the Mustangs a 9-3 lead


The Mustangs celebrate Christmas in July tomorrow night as Osvaldo Raya (6-1, 2.43 ERA) takes mound against the Chillicothe Mudcats.


The first 100 fans will receive a limited edition Mustangs Christmas Ornament sponsored by East Hills Shopping Center. A Mosaic Life Care Fireworks Spectacular set to christmas jingles will be presented following the game.


The dual marks the final Mustang appearance at Phil Welch Stadium for the 2017 regular season.
