Mustang baseball: Errors, poor offensive execution cost Broncos against Byng

Mustang got the bases loaded with nobody out in the bottom of the seventh-inning trailing 4A power Byng 6-4 on Tuesday evening at the MHS baseball complex but poor execution with the bats squandered the Broncos’ chances at a comeback, as they fell 6-5.

The loss drops Mustang’s overall record to 10-4 on the season.

Kale Davis got the start on the mound for the Broncos with Bobby Covalt completing the batter behind the plate. Davis received the loss for Mustang.

Byng took advantage of three Bronco errors in the first inning and scored two runs to take a 2-0 lead after the opening frame. The score would remain 2-0 in favor of the Pirates until the bottom half of the third inning, when Mustang erased the goose egg on the score board and scored three runs on one hit, one Byng error and two wild pitches.

Going into the fourth inning, MHS led 3-2.

Byng responded ferociously with a four-run fourth inning on two hits and one Mustang error. The Broncos didn’t score in their half of the inning and trailed 6-3 through four.

Mustang was able to cut the lead to 6-4 in the fifth inning on one hit. Neither team scored in the sixth inning before the Broncos couldn’t convert on their seventh-inning opportunity.

Mustang travels east today to compete in the Jenks/Broken Arrow tournament today, Friday and Saturday.

The Broncos will play Jenks and Jenks at 2 p.m. today and it is the Cox Game of the Week, so it will be on television statewide on the local Cox Cable channel.
