<strong>HYRUM—</strong> Mountain Crest used some solid hitting and stellar pitching as the Mustangs rolled to a 10-0 five-inning victory over valley-rival Logan Monday in a softball game that was rescheduled due to weather complications last week.
Hannah Branch connected on a home run for the Mustangs, and McKenzie Anderson smacked a double as Mountain Crest recorded 12 hits on the day. Jordan Smith pitched a gem of a game for the Mustangs as well, giving up no hits on the day.
The Mustangs got on the board immediately with a run in the bottom of the first inning. That trend continued in the second inning, as MC added two more. Despite an inability to generate offense, however, Logan only trailed 3-0 by the middle of the third inning. Then the wheels came off for the Grizzlies.
Mountain Crest exploded for seven runs in the bottom of the third inning, to build a 10-run lead. The Mustangs would not score the rest of the way, but neither did Logan – ending the game after the top of the fifth inning.
MC (4-3, 3-1) has now won two in a row and three of its last four. The Mustangs will put that win streak on the line Thursday when they travel to Smithfield to take on valley-rival Sky View, which has also been playing well of late. That game is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
Meanwhile, Logan (4-6, 0-4) continues to struggle, having lost three straight. The Grizzlies will have a quick opportunity to get back on the winning track, however, as they travel to Ogden to take on the Tigers Tuesday at 3:30 p.m.
