Thursday was parent night for the Mustang baseball team, and for some of the players, this would be the last season they would play for the Mustangs before moving on to bigger things. The Mustang baseball team finally got to play another game this season before the championship tournament. To say it’s been a tough season for games is an understatement. The Mustangs were at home, and Valley came to take the wind out of the sails of the Mustangs. It turns out they just didn’t have lungs to do it. The boys didn’t have a slow start as their bats got cracking. By the time Valley was picking their chins out of the dust, the Mustangs had notched up five runs on the board before breaking a sweat.
When the Mustangs took to the field, it was dangerous Noah Collins playing king of the hill from the mound and proceeded to take slinging leather to a whole new level. When the game was over, he had struck out 15 batters by pitching a nearly perfect game. The Mustangs had no trouble with Valley pitching, and in true Mustang fashion, they smacked the threads clean off the ball, racking up 15 runs by the end of the game. Valley tried to jump on the Scooby Doo mystery wagon and figure out how to score, but in the end, it remained a mystery. The Greyhounds lost to the Mustang juggernaut 15-0. The CCMS Mustangs are nearing the wire on their season; they will start tournament play on Wednesday against Braxton. A win there will put them in the championship game on Saturday. Go Mustangs!
