The Mustang Broncos scored seven runs in the final three innings to pull out a 10-6 win over the Bedlam rival Yukon Millers last Friday.

The Broncos tied the game 4-4 in the fifth before scoring four in the sixth and two in the seventh to earn their second victory this spring. They scored on four hits and five free passes while the Millers committed four errors over the final three frames.

Right fielder Jake Blice (Sr.) started a two-out rally by reaching on an error in the fifth before a single by catcher Wyatt Williamson (So.) moved him to second base.

Williamson went 2-for-3 at the dish while Blice went 1-for-4, including a big knock later in the game.

Blice scored the following at-bat as shortstop Kaden Williams (Jr.) reached on a second error to tie things up.

Miller mishaps played a factor again in the sixth as centerfielder Blaine Fulmer (Jr.) started the frame by reaching on an error.

Fulmer, who went 2-for-3 with two runs, reached third on a passed ball and single by left fielder Maddox Lawson (Sr.) and later scored on a second passed ball to give the Broncos a 5-4 lead.

Starting pitcher Carlos Lopez (Sr.) was hit by a pitch in the next at-bat and found his way to second on a sacrifice-bunt by third baseman Jackson Pickelsimer (Sr.).

Blice followed with a two-RBI single, scoring Lawson and Lopez to make it 7-4. Two passed balls later, Blice crossed the plate for a four-run lead.

The Broncos tacked on two more runs in the top of the seventh.

Second baseman Luiz Herrera (Jr.) and Fulmer led off with back-to-back walks before eventually scoring on a passed ball and an error for a 10-4 advantage.

Lopez, who gave up four runs in the first three innings, settled down on the mound as Mustang’s bats came alive.

The veteran lefty worked his way through the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings unscathed, stranding three runners in the process. Altogether, he was charged with six runs, including four earned over six innings, finishing with four strikeouts and four walks.

Lawson allowed three walks in relief while Fulmer recorded the final three outs to close out the victory.

Mustang returns to action on Thursday with a doubleheader to kick off the 2024 Edmond Spring Break Festival.

The Broncos, who host one of 10 sites for the opening stages of the tournament, take on Class 4A Kingfisher (3-7) at 12:30 p.m. before matching up with 3A Sperry (8-3) at 3 p.m.

They face off against 3A Metro Christian (7-2) at 12:30 p.m. on Friday before closing out the festival against Bishop Kelley (4-5) on Saturday at 10 a.m.

Mustang returns to district action with a two-game set against Lawton Ike (2-7, 0-4) at Lawton on Monday and at home on Tuesday. First pitch for both games is scheduled for 5 p.m.
