St. Joe’s collegiate summer baseball team improves to 30-11 and 24-10 in the MINK League. It’s the fourth straight season with at least 30 wins and the Mustangs have done that eight times in the 10 year history of the franchise.
St. Joseph scored one run in the third inning and two in the fifth to build a 3-0 lead. It stayed that way until the ninth inning when the Mustangs added insurance with a three-run top of the ninth. Nevada got its only run in the bottom of the ninth inning as they scored an unearned run off of Jake Purl.
Elle Rojas made his first start of the season for the Mustangs and he threw five scoreless innings. Rojas scattered four hits and he struck out five.
Colton Pogue and Joshua Lincoln had two hits each for St. Joe, while Matt Wollnik had two RBI. Jacob Richardson and Pat Dillon scored two runs a piece.
The Mustangs have Monday off before traveling to Chillicothe on Tuesday for a 7:05 first pitch.
