BILLINGS, Montana - The Billings Mustangs (3-1, 26-16) returned from the Pioneer League All-Star Break with a 4-2 win over the Ogden Raptors (3-2, 20-23) in front of 2,631 at Dehler Park.

Scott Moss (1-0) earned his first professional win in the start, pitching a season-high five innings. He allowed just one run and three hits while striking out two.

The Ogden Raptors scored first when Luis Paz hit his fourth homerun of the season, a solo homer in the top of the third. It was the second homerun Moss has allowed this season.

The Mustangs then took the lead, ultimately for good, when they plated three in the fourth inning off Dean Kremer (0-1). Satchel McElroy, Jose Siri and Taylor Trammell started the inning with consecutive singles to load the bases with no outs. Kremer battled back to retire the next two batters he saw before Alejo Lopez singled up the middle to score McElroy and Siri. Trammell came in during the next at-bat on a wild pitch to make it a 3-1 Mustangs lead. Lopez and Siri would both have multi-hit performances and are tied for a team-high 13 multi-hit games. Siri went 2-for-4 while Lopez was 2-for-3.

The Raptors tried to claw their way back into the game in the sixth with a run to cut the lead to a run. Mitchell Hansen was walked with one out and scored later in the inning on a fielder's choice. That is where the scoring would end for Ogden.

The Mustangs added an insurance run in the bottom of the seventh when Siri singled to score McElroy. McElroy accounted for two of the four Mustang runs in the game.

Jesse Stallings earned his third professional save by pitching a 1-2-3 ninth inning. He is now tied for second in the Pioneer League with three saves, one behind former Mustang Lucas Benenati who has four.

The Mustangs and the Raptors will continue their four-game series on Friday at Dehler Park in Billings. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
