Fueled by a stellar performance from left-hander Caleb McRoy (Duke), the Martinsville Mustangs knocked off the Catawba Valley Stars 9-1 on Wednesday night at Hooker Field.
McRoy tossed six innings, allowing only three hits and struck out 11 hitters.
The Mustangs (4-1, 1-1 CPL) opened the scoring in the first and added another in the second on a solo home run by JT Inskeep (VMI).
In the sixth, the Mustangs used several wild pitches and a big two-run double by Max Giordano (Niagara) to scratch across six more runs and blow the contest open.
Righty Martin Sosna (Miami OH) also saw an inning of action on the mound and allowed one hit and picked up a strikeout.
UP NEXT: Martinsville’s Thursday night road matchup with the Asheboro Copperheads is postponed due to weather. The Mustangs will return to action on Friday night at Tri-City. First pitch from Shepherd Stadium is scheduled for 7 p.m.
