Here are a few storylines for tonight's game against Idaho Falls:
*** The Mustangs enter the game having thrown 17 consecutive scoreless innings against the Chukars. Idaho Falls scored a run in the first inning on Wednesday against Clayton Shunick, but haven't score since.
Thursday night's combined shutout by Tanner Robles, Daniel Wolford and Patrick Doyle was the third whitewashing of the season for the Mustangs staff. That leads the Pioneer League.
*** The Mustangs have won their last seven games at Dehler Park, giving them a 9-5 record at home, which is tops in the North Division. Ogden, which has a league-best 19-12 record, also has the best home record at 10-4.
*** With a win tonight, the Mustangs (16-15) would be two games above .500 for the first time. They've had two other chances: 1-0, and 13-12.
*** Daniel Tuttle takes the mound tonight for the Mustangs. He's coming off his worst start of the season when he allowed 10 hits, seven runs (six earned) in four innings July 18 at Casper. Tuttle gave up four first-inning runs and the Mustangs lost 7-5. Tuttle is 3-2 with a 4.50 ERA, but in three starts at Dehler he's 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA in 16 innings pitched.
