Mustangs end season with disappointing 14-2 loss at Chillicothe

The St. Joseph Mustangs ended their 2013 season on a sour note Monday night as they were blown out at Chillicothe, 14-2.

St. Joe’s summer college baseball team ends its season 26-21 and 21-21 in the MINK League.  This the first year that St. Joseph will not make the postseason in its five years of existence.

The Mustangs fell behind early to the Mudcats Monday as Chillicothe scored two runs on two St. Joe errors in the first inning and they added three more in the third.

St. Joseph got two runs back in the fourth inning as Griff Gordon and Joe Koerper each singled to start the inning.  Gordon scored on a wild pitch, while Koerper came home on a groundout by Shane O’Connell.

That was all the Mustangs could get done offensively and then Chillicothe broke the game open with a six-run sixth inning.  The Mudcats had six hits in the inning and St. Joe committed two more errors as they had five on the night.

Dixon Marble (3-2) suffered the loss as he went just three innings, allowing five runs on five hits.

Koerper was the only Mustang with multiple hits as he finished 2-for-4 with one runs scored and a double.  Gordon, Brandon Huske, Lucas Powers, Zac Johnson and Kyle Richards had one single each.
