Mustangs gain split with W eston-McEwen TigerScots
The Heppner Mustangs traveled
to Athena on Saturday, April 18,
and split a double-header with the
Weston McEwen TigerScots.
The TigerScots won the first
game, 15-6, and the Mustangs
came back and held on to take
game two 7-6.
In game one the TigerScots
used a nine-run second inning to
take a 10-0 lead. The Mustangs
scored their first run without the
benefit of a hit as Cory Bennetto
walked, Shane Matheny was hit
by a pitch and Derek Gunderson
walked to load the bases with no
outs. But all the Mustangs could
get was a sacrifice fly from Alan
Gnbskov to score Bennetto.
The TigerScots scored three
more runs in the bottom of the
fourth to take a 13-1 lead.
In the top of the fifth
Gunderson walked and stole
second. Tim Dickenson then got
the Mustangs' first hit of the game
to score Gunderson and went to
second on the throw to the plate.
Gribskov got a base hit to score
Dickenson and went to second on
a throwing error. Chris Anthony
then got a hit to put runners on
first and third. Bias Elguezaba) *
got a hit to score Gribskov and
cut the lead to 13-4. After a balk
moved the runners to second and
third, Zach Fabian got a hit to
score Anthony and Elguezabal
and pull the Mustangs to 13-6.
That was all the scoring for the
Mustangs, however, as Weston-
McEwen tacked on two more
runs in the bottom of the fifth and
held on to win, 15-6.
Game two saw the Mustangs
take a 1-0 lead on top of the first
inning as Matheny singled, stole
second and third and came home
on Gnbskov’s double.
The TigerScots scored single
runs in the first and second inning
to take a 2-1 lead after two. In
the bottom of the second inning,
Matheny made a diving stop o f a
ball hit hard down the line at third
and threw over to first to just get
the runner out.
In the top of the third inning
Cody Bellamy walked, went to
second on Gunderson's fielder's
choice and scored on Matheny's
hit down the line. Dickenson then
got a hit to score Matheny. After
Dickenson stole second and
moved to third on Gribskov’s
fielder's choice, Anthony got a
two out single to score the run
and make it 4-2 Heppner after
three innings.
In the top of the fourth, Tim
Sumner walked, stole second and
went to third on Fabian's hit.
Gunderson laid down a squeeze
bunt to score Sumner. Matheny
then doubled to score Bellamy,
then scored as Dickenson got on
base on a error.
In the bottom of the fourth,
Gunderson fielded a hard hit ball
and tagged the runner from first,
then threw to first for the double
The TigerScots scored four runs
in the bottom of the fifth to pull to
7-6. But after a shaky start, Dylan

TigerScots in the sixth and
seventh innings to pick up the
save. Chris Anthony pitched
strong for four innings to pick up
the win and move to 4-1 on the
Matheny led the way at the
plate, going three for three with a
double, two RBI's and scoring
three runs. Gribskov was one for
