Matthews on a Tear
Billings jumped out to a four run lead in the first inning and cruised to a 7-4 home win over Great Falls. Jon Matthews once again did the job leading off with three hits including a single to lead off the game and he later scored the first run in an inning that included a couple of errors and a two-run single by Avain Rachal. The Mustangs added on in the sixth when Matthews doubled and advanced on Jonathan Reynoso's bunt single before those two scored on an RBI-groundout and single from Phil Ervin. Rachal had his hand in a run that crossed the next inning when he doubled and scored on a single by Daniel Paula. On the mound Luke Moran narrowly missed getting the decision when he tossed 4 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing two hits/one walk while striking out five. Larry Somsen got the win for retiring all seven batters he faced including three strikeouts. Joe Mantoni allowed only one walk and retired five of six batters faced to end the game with a save. This is the third season...
