On a bright sunny day at Lewis and Clark Park, the Morningside Mustangs baseball team split a doubleheader against GPAC foe Doane 3-4, 12-1.
Game one saw the Mustangs and Tigers trading runs early on, but then the game stalled out and went into extra innings. In the 8th, the Tigers were able to score one in the top of the frame, and Morningside couldn’t respond. Doane won 4-3.
Game two was much different for the Mustangs. The Morningside bats exploded for 12 runs, including five in the fourth and four in the fifth, as they cruised to a 12-1 victory to improve to 20-11 on the season.
