Verduzco leads at the plate in Mustangs win

07/07/2018 9:27 PM -

Chaz Verduzco crushed the ball into the left field corner. The Renegades left fielder tracked the ball, backing up until the outfield wall in Phil Welch stadium prevented him from retreating further. Trailing 3-2 in a back-and-forth game, Verduzco cleared the fence and broke the game open, giving the Mustangs a 5-3 lead.

Trailing by a run in the second, the Mustangs rallied. Back-to-back singles and a walk left the bases loaded for Brody Santilli who found an open patch of grass in left field with a bloop single to score Alex Phillips, tying the game.
