Mustangs take 5th title in 7 years

07/31/2017 10:15 PM -

The only Mustangs manager to ever take the diamond at Phil Welch walked away a little more decorated as the Mustangs bullied their way to a MINK League Championship.

 

Matt Johnson turned his home into a dynasty as he captured his fifth title in his nine year tenure with the Mustangs as they dominated to a 13-2 route over the Ozark Generals.

 

Joshua Monson pitched the first four innings for the Mustangs, giving up the only two Ozark runs of the game. The Mustang offense took over from that point on.

 

Colton Pogue singled  leading off the bottom of the fourth. The Generals walked Jeremiah Figueroa before Jacob Richardson doubled scoring the two with one outs.

 

The fun didn’t stop there as Erasmo Gonzalez doubled scoring Richardson. The inning came to an end with a 3-2 Mustang lead.

 

The offense further came alive in the bottom of the sixth as Richardson reached base after being hit by pitch.

 

An attempt to pickoff Richardson at first base with Gonzalez at bat turned into an error, allowing him to reach third, while Richardson scored.

 

Brody Santilli tripled, scoring Gonzalez and Fortuna. The damage didn’t stop there as Wollnik singled to score Santilli. Brady Anderson scored following an error to third, before Pogue scored following a Jeremiah Figueroa putout.  

 

By the end of the inning, the Mustangs had a 9-2 lead. Four more runs were scored in the eighth, setting up an easy last inning for closer Nikko Pablo.

 

Despite struggling at some points, Pablo managed to record the final three outs of the game avenging his loss in game one of the series.

 

The Mustangs finished their championship season 37-14, with a 31-13 MINK record. Approximately 65,453 fans witnessed the team in action this season, averaging 2,257 fans a game.
