The Mustangs boarded their team bus early Thursday (May 17) morning and headed 156 miles north to Goleta for their second CIF-SS Championships game. Nearly four hours later, the Mustangs arrived at Dos Pueblos High School, home of the Channel League Baseball Champions. The next five hours in Goleta made the bus ride back to Trabuco much more enjoyable/tolerable … a 3-2 Mustangs victory over the Dos Pueblos Chargers.
Kevin Wade pitched an efficient complete game (92 total pitches), striking out five Chargers during the course of seven innings. Cole Stanton and Brett DaRe’ led the Mustangs offense. Stanton went 2 for 3 with a single and a double … while DaRe’ absolutely crushed a bases clearing 3-run double in the 4th inning.
UPDATE: The Mustangs successfully called the outcome of the CIF-SS Round 2 coin flip and will now host the Redlands Terriers at Trabuco on Tuesday, May 22 at 3:15pm.
