Aaron Hall and Matt Painter’s pitching, along with run support from Redman (14 RBI), T. Painter (14 RBI), and Walden (14 RBI) have led our team to victory. Jaedan Pierce (.500), Aaron Hall (.417), Tylor Painter (.412) , EG Walden (.410) , and TJ Garner (.358) are currently leading our team’s batting average.
Matt Painter (7-1) and Aaron Hall (6-1) both have winning records, recording only 1 loss apiece this season and additional pitching support from Chris Bowe and Conner Heiderbrect. Hall (.396 ERA) and M. Painter (1.512 ERA) are excelling in all games and look to keep up the success, making errors from the defense almost meaningless.
Minarets came out hot against the Red Raiders of Caruthers behind the elite pitching from Aaron Hall. After an exciting victory against the Red Raiders, the team encountered a tough loss provoked by errors against Fowler. However, after this loss the team didn’t let their heads get down, and Jaeden Pierce got the win throwing 5 hard innings against the Fresno Christian Eagles. Following this offensive victory Matt Painter threw an 80 pitch complete game shutout against the Riverdale Cowboys.
Coach Darrah says, “We are very proud of this team so far this season. They have consistently risen to the occasion with unbelievable spirit and grit. A great record is nice, but our goals are bigger than that. This team is hungry for a League Championship and an opportunity to play for a Valley Title. This team is a blast to coach and I’m very proud to be apart of this great season we are having. Go Mustangs!”
The fans have shown major support for this team and the Mustangs have been feeling the love.
Upcoming games include: 4/20 @ Parlier, 4/27 versus Caruthers, 5/1 versus Fowler, and 5/4 @ Fresno Christian. Come out and support Mustang baseball as they fight to continue their successful season.
