It had been nearly two years since the St. Joseph Mustangs had welcomed fans to Phil Welch Stadium.

The Mustangs opened the season Wednesday by hosting the Des Moines Peak Prospects. 

Playing in front of more than 3,000 fans, the Mustangs walked off the Prospects in the 10th inning, 5-4, on an infield single from Mid-Buchanan alum Brady Holden, which scored Savannah alum Dakota Spicer.

Starting pitcher and former West Platte Blue Jay Mack Stephenson was named Player of the Game, recording eight strikeouts, and allowing only four hits and three walks in the 10-inning thriller.

The Mustangs celebrated the season-opener with a firework show at the conclusion of the game.

St. Joseph is back in action on Friday, hosting the Jefferson City Renegades at 7:00 p.m. for Professional Wrestling Night at Phil Welch Stadium. It’ll also be dollar beer night.
