Having said that, Mon-day’s 9-8 win over Andrews at Sportsman’s Park — Sweetwater’s ninth straight — won’t soon be forgotten by anyone who saw it.
It came after the Mustangs trailed 8-1 with only six outs remaining, and 8-3 going into their final at bat before scoring six runs in the bot-tom of the seventh.
