Mustangs Walk Off to State Baseball Semi’s

It wasn’t easy, but Hempstead pulled off a Mustang Miracle to advance into the 4-A semi-finals at the state high school baseball tournament in a   7-6 walk off win over Iowa City High at Principal Park in Des Moines. Hempstead led 5-1 after 2 innings, but City High chipped away and took a 6-5 lead into the bottom of the 7th. With 2 out and runners at first and second, the Mustangs Andrue Henry hit what appeared to be a towering game ending fly ball to shallow leftfield, however the ball was misplayed by the Little Hawks allowing Michael Garrett and Zach Sabers to score, and the celebration was on.  Hempstead now 16-and-1 on the season will play at 4:30 Friday afternoon against 2nd seed Ankeny (20-8). You will be able to hear the game on AM 1370 KDTH and kdth.com.
