    Who is Konstanty? Never seen that name before. The Billings team is going to rake all year.

    Mustangs win big over Osprey

    By Gazette News Services

    MISSOULA - The Billings Mustangs clubbed four home runs - two by Neftali Soto - to defeat the Missoula Osprey 10-3 in the Pioneer League Wednesday night.

    Soto drove in four runs and Mike Konstanty and Tony Brown also homered to back the combined seven-hitter from four Mustangs pitchers.

    In taking the first two games of the season-opening series, the Mustangs have outhit the Osprey 31-13 and outscored them 16-9.

    Starter Oscar Castro (1-0) went six innings and struck out five. He allowed three runs, all earned, before giving way to Steve Otterness, Brandon Rice and Randall Linebaugh. The four pitchers also combined for just two bases on balls.

    The Mustangs (2-0) broke the game open with a five-run sixth inning. Soto connected for a three-run homer and Konstanty added a two-run shot as Billings took a 9-3 lead. All the runs in the inning were unearned.

    Soto and Alex Buchholz each had three hits, while four other Mustangs had two hits.

    The teams wrap up their three-game series tonight in Missoula. Then the Mustangs move on to Great Falls for a three-game series with the Voyagers.

    Also Wednesday, right-hander Clayton Shunick, a fifth-round pick from North Carolina State, and outfielder Byron Wiley, a 22nd-round selection out of Kansas State, joined the Mustangs.

    I don't know about 15 or 16 hits a night but let's just say there are plenty of high scoring games in the Pioneer League.
    They've been in Missoula too -- a real hitter's haven.

    Nice to see Shunick in the fold. I think Buchholz will be one of the steals of the draft. This kid can rake. Billings roster, in fact, has a bunch of guys with good bats and the thin air and small parks should just magnify that. Soto is going to be monster in Billings, imo.

    Re: Wednesday June 18th minor league updates

    I'm developing some interest in the college outfielder haul from this year's draft. Already, you've got the following 5 guys assigned to Billings, and that does not include Tony Brown:

    Stiffler, Stovall, Means, Sappelt, Wiley

    Wiley had a huge sophomore year at K State. Sappelt and Means appear to be plus athletes with power and speed. Figuring that Tony Brown is going to get his share of ABs, you have to wonder how they are going to find playing time for all of these OFs.... I wonder if they'll push some to Dayton?

    I believe the Reds are pretty high on Tony Brown. He was impressive in 2007 after signing for above slot money. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on him.
