Mustangs come alive to win USA Baseball Classic

Staff report

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- McCracken County won two games on Saturday on its way to winning the championship of the 24th Annual USA Baseball Classic.

In its first game, the Mustangs got on top early and used a dominant sixth inning to beat Christian Brothers, 13-1.

With Rece Carter shutting down Christian Brothers, McCracken gave him plenty of run support by going up 4-0 after two innings. McCracken, leading 5-1 in the fifth inning, put the game away in the next frame with RBI singles from Daniel Myatt, James Michael Dodd, Cameron Langston, Trent Shelby and two-run doubles from Will Sykes and Mason Vinyard.

Carter allowed just two hits and no earned runs to pick up the win, and was backed by a balanced offense led by Vinyard, Shelby and Sykes all with two hits and two RBIs. Rook Ellington scored three times.

McCracken faced Ventura, California, in the championship and went up by three runs in the first inning, highlighted by Langston's two-run double. That 3-0 lead doubled by the next inning, as Myatt and Shelby both contributed with RBI singles. McCracken tacked on additional runs in the third, fifth and sixth innings to blow out Ventura.

Colin McCutchen allowed just four hits and no earned runs in six innings to grab the win. Myatt (three hits, three RBIs) and Langston (two hits, two RBIs, two runs) paced the Mustang offense.

Since starting the season 3-3, the Mustangs have won eight of their last nine games.
