'Stangs roll a lucky 7

By Neil H. Devlin, Mullen Sports Information Director
Mullen wins its 7th consecutive game, downs Overland 14-0 in the Centennial League; busy week ends on Saturday with a roadie at Overland. 
They were expected to win, they did and they moved on … Mullen’s Mustangs downed Overland 14-0 in five innings on Thursday in Centennial League play at Bill Swift Field.

It was Mullen’s seventh consecutive victory, pushing it to 10-3 overall, 9-3 in league. It is a half-game behind Cherokee Trail for second place and 1.5 games behind league-leading Cherry Creek. The Mustangs also lead the league in runs permitted at 41.

Overland is 1-12, 1-12.

“We were trying to get everybody in,” Mustangs head coach Nick Arcuri said. “I think we’re preparing for the stretch and that’s why I’m trying to get everyone involved because we’re going to need them all.”

The Mustangs also held the Trailblazers without a hit. Henry Stewart went four innings and Henry Shellhorn finished the fifth, although they issued a combined seven walks. Offensively, Mullen reached double figures in hits for a second consecutive game despite Arcuri resting some starters.

“It was a weird energy, kind of flat, but it’s all right,” Stewart said. “We’re all starting to hit. If we keep playing as a team, we’ll be fine.”

It was Mullen third game in three days and it will have a fourth on Saturday, June 5, when it will visit Overland at Utah Park in Aurora, first pitch at 11 a.m.
