Mustangs defeat ranked Beavers
June 21, 2013 · Crystal Eskelsen

The Mount Vernon baseball team knocked off Class 2A, No. 3 Wilton last week, 9-4.

The unranked Mustangs took an early lead, scoring three runs in the first inning and four runs in the second to go ahead 7-0 after just two innings.

"We hit the ball well against a top team," said Jeremy Elliott, Mount Vernon head coach.

Mount Vernon's Connor Welch hit a grand slam home run to give the Mustangs their four second inning runs.

Wilton got on the board in the third inning, but only scored three.

The Mustang defense held off the Beavers, and the Mount Vernon offense added a single run in both the fourth and fifth innings to maintain a comfortable lead.

Also this past week, Mount Vernon lost a doubleheader to Marion and split with Maquoketa.

The Mustangs host Class 3A, No. 3 Benton Community in a doubleheader today (Thursday June 20). Monday, Mount Vernon is at Class 2A, No. 1 Dyersville Beckman. Wednesday, June 26, they are at Independence.
