Baseball began their season on Thursday, looking to grab a win against Camden County College. The Mustangs had already had several games postponed due to weather, so they were eager to get on the field for another season.
This season, the baseball team was looking to improve on their success in reaching the regional tournament last season. With several returners, they looked to have a pretty strong roster.
Unfortunately, the Cougars had other ideas. They immediately put the pressure on the Mustangs, scoring one in the first inning. Logan Curley (SO, Upper Perkiomen) started right where he left off with an RBI on a sacrifice fly to answer Camden.
From there however, things started to get out of control. At the bottom of the 6th inning, Camden led 6-1. The Mustangs needed to make something happen, and who other than Curley to make it happen. Curley slapped a double that brought in two Mustangs before scoring himself off of a Colt Narciso (FR, Pope John Paul) single. Montgomery finished the inning down only 6-5.
But the consistent scoring effort by Camden slowly pulled the score away from the Mustangs. The Cougars scored in every inning, despite never scoring more than two runs in an inning. The Mustangs put up their last effort in the 8th, but were only able to add two more runs and eventually fell 12-7.
Over spring break the Mustangs will be headed to Myrtle Beach, SC for a five game stretch against several SUNY schools. The first game will be on March 17th at 6:15 pm against Finger Lakes Community College.
