Going into the 2018 season, the Penn Yan Mustang baseball team figured pitching would be their strong suit. Coach Willy Hillberg’s Orange and Blue pitching staff is deep with a lot of experience. The Mustang nine hosted the Midlakes Screaming Eagles at the Elm Street Field April 21. Both teams enter the contested with 2-0 records in the Finger Lakes East League. The winner would grab the lead in the Finger Lakes East. The Mustangs walked off with a 5-0 win behind the strong pitching of senior Donny McMahon. The Penn Yan ace completely shutdown the Eagle bats enroute to the win. His battery mate, Peyton Schuck provided the hitting support. He delivered 2 hits to spark the Mustang offense.
The win improved Penn Yan’s overall record to 5-2. They are 3-0 in Finger Lakes East League play.
