Mustangs struggle to plate runs in loss to Joplin.

06/15/2018 8:51 PM -

Terrance Spurlin squeezed a sharply hit groundball through the middle of the Outlaws infield. The hit was enough to score Malik Williams giving the Mustangs the lead in the second inning. Unfortunately, that was all the offense Saint Joseph could muster on Friday as they fell to Joplin 5-1.

St. Joe starter Matt Mulhearn pitched four-scoreless innings before giving up three runs in the fifth. He collected seven strikeouts during his outing.

 

The Outlaws threatened to take an early lead in the top half of the first, but the Mustangs defense clamped down. Zachary Smith threw a strike from left field to beat Joplin’s Blake Wynn at the plate, keeping the score tied at zero.

 

Fans in the stands took advantage of Friday Night Lites with $1 Miller Lite, Coors Lite, Bud Light, Busch Light; $2 drafts.

 

Outlaw’s starting pitcher Dalton Weaver threw nine innings, giving up sixth hits, with nine strikeouts. The Mustangs struggled to find a rhythm at the plate all night.

 

Phil Welch was home to some special guests as Rally celebrated his tenth birthday party. Remy the woolly mammoth from Remington Nature Center, Bobby the Bearcat from Northwest Missouri State, Andi the Armadillo from Texas Roadhouse and the Chick-fil-A cow partied with fans throughout the contest.

 

The loss ties the three-game series at one a piece. The Mustangs will look to rebound in the decisive game three on Saturday night.
