Mustangs Walk-Off to Victory

Hunter Sullivan's walk-off homerun in the bottom of the 7th inning.

In a wet, sloppy baseball game on Wednesday night, the Redmond Mustangs did just enough to defeat the visiting Interlake Saints, 8-7.

Senior Wil Helland took the ball for the Mustangs and held the Saints' bats at bay for 3 1/3 innings, striking out six. Unfortunately, the defense did not help him out and a two run error in the 4th inning allowed the Saints to tie the game up at 3. Freshman Collin Curry got the Mustangs out of the jam in the 4th with two quick outs in relief.

Redmond looked to break things open in the 5th when they tied the game at 5 and had the bases loaded with none out. Senior Hunter Sullivan drove a ball to deep left which was tracked down by the Interlake left-fielder. One run scored on the sac fly, but the runner at second was called out for not tagging up. The Mustangs would later take a 7-5 lead into the 7th, but Interlake rallied for two runs to tie the game. The scene was then set for the dramatics of Sullivan. With two out and none on, the Mustang first baseman launched a 2-1 pitch to left-centerfield for a walk-off homerun that sent the cold, wet fans of Hartman Park into a jubilant celebration.

The win puts Redmond at 3-4 after the first half of league play, which ties them for 4th with the Juanita Rebels. That tie will be broken on Friday night as the Mustangs host the Rebels at 6 pm at Hartman Park. Come on out for more Mustang magic.
