  • It was Camdenton's game to run away with. Leading 4-1 after four innings, the visiting Lakers added on another two runs to take a 6-1 lead over the Mustangs in a Wednesday summer league match.
    Eldon's Skylar Yakich had other ideas than rolling over, though.
    With a deep ball down the baseline in the bottom of the fifth, Yakich's hit sent in two runs to pull the Mustangs back in the game. Yakich would score a run on the next play, and the Mustangs were back in the game.
    Camdenton quickly recovered, though, with a double play to get the last two outs of the inning as Jordan Webster and Brady Kempf caught a runner between bases, with Webster running him down for the out before flicking the ball to first base for the double play.
    Eldon's fielding errors continued to plague them in the sixth inning, allowing the Lakers to load the bases and work in five runs for an 11-4 lead.
    The Mustangs were able to tack on four more runs in the bottom of the sixth before the Lakers got their three outs.
    After Camdenton finished out the top of the seventh inning, the Mustangs trailed 12-8. The Mustangs were able to score two runs before Jordan Webster was put on the mound, and on his second pitch, the Lakers had another double play to close out the game with a final score of 12-10.
