Mustangs Pitching Ravaged by Jones

Players get multi-hit games all the time. But a 5-hit game only comes around once in a blue moon. It happened at Google Park when Shawn Jones of Las Vegas scattered 5 hits all over the ballpark against the Detroit Mustangs.

He was down and a little subdued with mixed feelings in the postgame interview. "It was a good day for me, but not a good day for the Blackjacks. The bottom line in baseball is to win. We didn't do it today," he told the press after the game.

He walloped 5 hits in 5 at-bats in his career day performance, but it was the Mustangs, who won the ballgame 11-8.

However, the center fielder of the Blackjacks did have this to say: "My swing was really, really there today. I made some good, solid contact and when that happens... good things happen. Sure, 5-5 and losing is better than going 0-5 and losing. I'll take 2-4 and a win and be overjoyed. I ain't greedy."

Shawn Jones doubled in the 1st, doubled in the 3rd, singled in the 4th, hit a two-run single in the 5th and singled in the 8th.

This season Jones is swinging the bat at a .312 rate with 119 hits in 382 at-bats. To date he has hit 18 home runs, scored 74 runs and driven in 71.
