(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Before the fireworks show could begin at Phil Welch Stadium Tuesday evening, the Mustang bats were lighting up the sky.
St. Joseph (24-8, 18-8 MINK) hit a pair of triples and home runs in the first two innings against the United States Military All-Stars on its way to a 10-1 win.
Already with a 5-0 lead in the second, Mark Robinette hit a two-out triple to extend the inning to clean-up hitter, Kris Koerper. The Texas native ended up sending a pitch over the left field wall for a two-run home run. The next batter, Jordan Guida, followed Koerper's blast with a home run of his own.
The Mustangs are home for a second straight night on Independence Day with a game against Sedalia.
