Mustangs Fall to Osprey 9-7
The batters woke up, at least for one inning, but the pitchers just couldn't keep the Osprey at bay. A 6 tun explosion in the 3rd inning gave us all hope as the Osprey were chipping away at the lead with a run here and two runs there, but the usual late inning fireworks did not happen today. There was some uncharacteristic misplay in the infield, which didn't help either.
While Robert Maddox is learning to play first base and where the strike zone is, he also occasionally hits a towering home run, which he did today with two Mustangs on base. Maybe things will improve as they go on the road where not so many folks are watching. They were tied with Helena before the start of today's game so their standing tomorrow will depend on what happens in Great Falls where the Brewers are playing this evening.
