Mustangs run over the Storm

MANLIUS — With a slow but steady start, the Morrison Mustangs walked away with a win against the Bureau Valley Storm in Thursday’s match-up in Manlius.

The Storm kept a close game with the Mustangs leading 2-0 at the bottom of the third inning, but a strong offense and defense allowed for the Mustangs to advance to a 11-2 win at game’s end.

Pitcher Keaton Wagenknecht started off strong for the Storm, keeping hits from Morrison to a minimum; he was relieved during the final innings by McKinley Krueger.

The Storm had a rush of excitement in the third inning with a solid hit to the outfield by Ryan Carlson; Wagenknecht followed batting in Josh Renner and Carlson for the Storm to catch up with a score of 4-2.

For Morrison, the game was all about strong hits to the outfield, giving the Storm a challenge on defense. During the fifth inning, the Mustangs quieted the Storm rush and scored their final six runs with tough outfield hits. Pitcher Andy Schaver shut down the Storm offense.
