The defending state champion Mustang Broncos returned to the diamond on Monday and cruised to a 19-2 win over the Guthrie Blue Jays.

Mustang’s quest for its third state title in the last four seasons started with 18 hits, including seven home runs and three doubles. Each player in the lineup recorded at least one knock.

Third baseman Eden Anderson (Sr.) led the way at the plate, going 3-for-3 with three bombs and seven RBI. Short fielder Arionna McElroy (Sr.), catcher Nyli Brown (Jr.), first baseman Rylann Beeson (So.), and extra hitter Reese Poage (So.) also homered.

McElroy, Poage, and right fielder Shaye Rowe (Sr.) all doubled. Second baseman Lexi Kierstead (So.) went 3-for-3 with three singles.

Shortstop Abigail Keele (So.), starting pitcher Emerson Pegram (Sr.), centerfielder Kenzie Sessions (Sr.), and left fielder Rylee Hannon (Sr.) also singled.

Coach Lacy Darity‘s squad scored 12 runs in the first inning and seven in the second.

Pegram returned to the circle after helping guide the Broncos to the state title last year.

She allowed just two runs, including one earned, on eight hits and one Mustang error. She needed just 28 pitches to seal the win.

The Broncos (1-0) return to action on Monday against the Southmoore Sabercats (1-0) at home at 6 p.m. before traveling to Moore to take on the Lions (2-1) on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
