Nine walks, six errors hurt Mustangs

In the April 30 game against Fowler, Minarets started out with two runs in the top of the first following a single by Biglione, his first of four in the game. Starting pitcher Sam Reyes helped his cause with an RBI ground out to shortstop. Kyle Reed started the scoring in the 2nd inning with a triple. Cedar Robertson's suicide bunt was good for a hit and scored Reed. Robertson would come around to score latter in the inning on a wild pitch.

The Mustangs held a comfortable 8-3 lead going into the bottom of the sixth, when the wheels came off. Everything that could go wrong, did, as the Mustangs gave up nine runs in the frame, to give Fowler the 12-8 win.

Mustang pitchers walked nine in the game, committed six errors (four in the sixth inning) to hand Fowler the win and slip into a league tie with the Caruthers Blue Raiders.
