2011 Mustangs: Andrew Nellestein   Leave a comment

2011 Mustang sAndrew NellesteinAndrew Nellestein didn’t play Monday night, the local catcher doesn’t see a lot of time with TJ Daily and Landinn Eckhart ahead of him at the position. The Mustangs did win 7-1 thanks to a strong start by Jayson Huett and two doubles by Brent Seifert. Seifert drove in 3 runs on those two hits. It seems he always gets hits with runners in scoring postition. Huett got the win and is now 3-0 with an impressive 2.13 ERA.

2011 Mustangs: John Wegener   Leave a comment

2011 Mustangs John WegenerThe Mustangs beat non-league opponents Omaha Strike Zone handily tonight 13-7. A non-league opponent means that several of the bench players will get into the game so several players played that don’t normally see a lot of action. I actually got to watch several players I hadn’t seen before. One of these was John Wegener. It looks as if it was Wegener’s first action with the team and made a very good impression. He started the game with a triple to right center field then followed that with a double to left center later in the same inning. Wegener would end the day at 4-5 while driving in 3 runs.

The 8-run first inning set the tone for the game. Brent Seifert continued to hit well by going 2-5 with 4 RBI. Seifert blasted a long home run to straight away right field as the third batter of the game to put the home team up 3-0.  Several Mustangs had good a good day at the plate including the catcher from St. Joseph, Andrew Nellestein who was 3-5 with 2 RBI.

It will be interesting to see how the Mustangs work somebody like Wegener into the lineup. I wondered how they could get Seifert, Robinette, Koerper and Chaffin all in the lineup earlier this year but they solved that problem by giving 3rd year Mustang Brent Seifert some time at second base. I don’t know who will sit to get Wegener into the batting order but I do know that it is a good problem to have.
