Mustangs Defeated by No. 12 Cowley in Elimination Game to End JUCO World Series Run

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo., May 27, 2019 – A pair of big rallies for No. 12 Cowley College in the sixth and seventh frames were too much to overcome, as the Monroe College Mustangs baseball team dropped a 16-6 decision to the Tigers on Monday in a 2019 Alpine Bank Junior College World Series elimination game, ending the Mustangs run in Grand Junction. The Tigers grabbed the early lead, scoring in similar fashion in both the first and second innings. Cody Milligan led off the game with a triple to left-center, and then Carson Sader grounded out to second, bringing him in from third to quickly put the Tigers up, 1-0. In the top of the second, George Specht hit a leadoff triple off the wall in right, and then a sacrifice fly by Parker Dunn brought him in from third to push the lead to 2-0. The Mustangs broke through in the home half of the second. Leandy Castro snuck a ground ball through the right side with one out, then Iasid Bernal dropped a single in front of the center fielder to get two runners on. A wild pitch moved both runners into scoring position, and a long fly ball to left field by Neifi Mercedes brought Castro in to score and cut the deficit to 2-1.
