The Mustangs return to Dehler Park on Wednesday to start a six-game homestand, beginning with the Missoula Osprey.

Following the two games with Missoula, the Mustangs play host to the Helena Brewers for four games.

Here’s what to watch for in the Missoula series:

HITTERS TO WATCH: Missoula’s Dane McFarland entered Tuesday’s games as the top hitter in the league. He’s batting .458 (11 for 24) and his seven RBIs has him tied for the league lead. Outfielder Aristides Aquino is off to a good start for the Mustangs, batting a team-high .379 with two home runs and six RBIs.

NUMBERS TO KNOW: The Mustangs and Osprey have the second- and third-ranked staffs, respectively, in the Pioneer League. Billings enters the two-game series with a 3.26 ERA, while Missoula counters with a 4.24 ERA.
