Baseball Takes First 5-inning Win of the Season

Baseball Takes First 5-inning Win of the Season

Baseball was looking to extend their two-game win streak into a 3-0 record in Myrtle Beach this season. On Tuesday, the Mustangs faced off against SUNY Schenectady at Ebbets Field.

It didn't take long for the Mustangs to get into the game. They immediately exploded, scoring 6 of their first seven batters in the first inning, capped off by Frankie Ramirez's (FR, Winter Springs) second triple in as many games. Ramirez finished 3-3 with 3 H and an RBI.

The Royals attempted to answer the explosive offense of the Mustangs, but were only able to grab two runs in the second inning. Nick Rusin (FR, Boyertown) pitched a 5-inning complete game and only allowed three hits in his first start.

The Mustangs on the other hand, had no intention of slowing down. They would score 6 more runs in the following innings and force the game to end on the 10 run rule, which occurs when one team is beating the other team by 10 or more runs after the fifth inning (or the seventh inning in a nine inning game).

Freshman Mike Kelly (Pope John Paul) continues to impress. He had 1 H, 2 R and 2 RBI on 3 AB. He also stole two bases and continues to lead the team in that category.

The Mustangs will face their toughest challenge of the week on Wednesday when they take on DII SUNY Sullivan.
