2011 MINK North Champion Mustangs: Adam Maddox   Leave a comment

2011 Mustangs Adam MaddoxThe Mustangs are officially the 2011 MINK North division champions! They clinched that status tonight with a 6-2 win over the Clarinda A’s. The Mustangs have won just under 75% of their games this year and currently hold a 7 game lead as they have the division clinched.

The game featured a looming storm that threatened the game most of the night but never delayed it. It wasn’t 10 after the game before the skies broke open and started to pour, but the Mustangs had already taken care of business. The game itself was largely uneventful. The Mustangs took a 6-0 lead to the 9th inning behind a brilliant start by Cody Cunningham. After a rough start to the 9th the Mustangs closed things out with Doug Shields. Shields only faced 2 batters but had a key part in the game.

Shields faced the tying run twice in his 2/3 of an inning, getting a strikeout and popout to end the game. With Clarinda having the momentum in their favor with one out shield struck out a pinch hitter with an absolutely nasty breaking ball. The Mustangs took all the momentum away with that pitch.

Adam Maddox get the card tonight because everybody who had a large part in tonight’s game has already had a card posted. Maddox will play a huge roll in the postseason for the team as he did so well last year.
