RED OAK – For six innings, the Shenandoah Mustangs held on to a 1-0 lead over Red Oak, Wednesday, June 5.

Meanwhile, Kyle Cerven held down the Tiger bats. He went the distance on the mound, throwing just 83 pitches in 6.1 innings. He gave up six hits, three walks and two unearned runs. He struck out three.

Knight, Cerven, Blake Herold and Devin Morelock managed the four Mustang hits. Knight swiped two bases during the game, which saw the Mustangs fall to 2-6 overall and 1-4 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference.

Carter Bruce earned the complete game win for Red Oak. The senior gave up five hits, one walk and an unearned run while striking out 11.

The Tigers improved to 3-4 with the win. They didn’t win a single conference game last year, but already have two in four tries this season.
