Top of the fourth. I love this Billings' announcer.
Wunderkind Jesse Winker lines a single to right to open up the Mustangs fourth. Slow roller off the bat of Mejias-Brean to second moves Winker into scoring position with one out. Tapper back to the mound and they get Winker in a rundown. He stays in it long enough for Sanchez to move into second. Pigott lines a single to right. Sanchez gets a poor break, runs through the stop sign, luckily falls down and scrambles back to third. Wild pitch. Woohoo. A gift. 2-1 as Sanchez scores and Pigott goes to second. The catcher could not locate the baseball as the pitcher had to retrieve the ball up the first base line. Lentz lines to left but Mustangs cut the deficit in half. 2-1.
Bottom of the fourth.
Bouncer to the mound. One down. Line single to left. Line single that almost undressed Romano. 1st and 2nd. Fossas out to the mound. Probably telling Romano to throw more cheese. Grounder to first. Romano late off the mound. Bases juiced. Ball hit to the right side the pitcher covers. How hard can that be? They teach that in Little League. Off my soapbox again. Broken-bat single that just clears the second baseman. Two runs are plated. 4-1. Osprey dinking and dunking the Mustangs to death. Sac fly makes it 5-1. HBP. Romano heading to the shower. I didn't catch the reliever's name. Ground ball to Dailey ends this fourth-inning garbage. 5-1 Missoula.
Let's hang a Championship Banner this year!!!!!
