Ashton Landry did the most damage at the plate, going 2-for-4 with a home run, four runs batted in and three runs scored.

Zach McNeil and Zach Krummel each went 3-for-4. Dean Reynolds was 2-for-4 with two RBI.

Gage Griifith was 2-for-3 with a RBI. Anthony Bandiero was 1-for-2 with a RBI while Peco and Austin Smith each went 1-for-4 and drove in a run apiece.

The Mustangs will look to regroup Tuesday with a road trip to Vidor while the Bears return home to host Jasper in a non-district tilt before hosting Vidor next Friday.
