The prospect was there for the Billings Mustangs to finish off a great homestand Sunday afternoon.
The 10/10 Club -- reaching double digits in home runs and stolen bases -- isn’t an exclusive one in the Pioneer League. Still, it’s rarified air.
OGDEN, Utah -- Leadoff hitter Cory Thompson triggered a 16-hit assault with four hits and the Billings Mustangs finished their road trip with a 12-3 victory over Ogden at Lindquist Field.
The good news for the Mustangs is that Ryan O’Hearn, Wander Franco and Idaho Falls have left town. The better news is that third baseman Taylor Sparks might be coming into his own just nine games into his first professional season.
MISSOULA – Jimmy Pickens and Ty Washington hit eighth-inning home runs to help Billings to a 3-2 win over the Missoula Osprey and salvage what would have been a frustrating night for the Mustangs.
On a night when the Mustangs’ lineup was scattered with teenagers, a couple “veterans” helped lead the way.
