The Martinsville Mustangs used a 10-5 victory over the High Point-Thomasville HiToms to push their winning streak to three on Saturday night at Hooker Field.
Left-hander Caleb McRoy (Duke) made his fifth start of the summer on the mound, allowing five runs on four hits and striking out four in four innings of work.
Third baseman Jack Elliott (Mercyhurst) opened the scoring in the first inning, launching his team-leading fourth home run of the season, a two-run shot to right to make it 2-0 Martinsville.
Trailing 5-2 in the fourth, the Mustangs (13-19 overall, 5-5 second half) rallied for eight unanswered runs the rest of the way, including four in the bottom of the fourth. Catcher Bo Rusher (Gardner-Webb) notched a two-run double before center fielder Will Knight (VMI) laced a two-run triple to give the Mustangs the lead for good.
The combination of southpaw Braxton Webb (Oklahoma) and righty Trey Carter (Liberty) finished the contest out of the bullpen, shutting down the HiToms and helping the Mustangs secure a third consecutive win.
Following an off-day Sunday, Martinsville returns home Monday night at 7 p.m. for an exhibition matchup with the Carolina Disco Turkeys. Fans can take advantage of $3 general admission tickets and $1 hot dogs.
