The St. Joseph Mustangs picked up a pair of wins against the Nevada Griffons this past weekend.

The Mustangs, or Tenderloins as they were known that night, picked up their first win of the season at home Friday with a 13-3 run rule victory. 

Mid-Buchanan and Missouri Western alum Brady Holden scored three runs in that game, while recent St. Joseph Christian graduate Camden Lutz got his first strikeout of the summer Friday as well.

The Mustangs stayed home Saturday to host Nevada, and lost 3-0 in 10 innings, despite 10 strikeouts in seven innings from starting pitcher and Savannah native Micah Diamond.

The Mustangs bounced back Sunday in their first road game of the season and beat Nevada 11-7, putting their overall record at 2-2.

St. Joseph plays at Joplin Monday. First pitch is set for 7 p.m.
