Make no mistake, Monday was Mark Hull’s night.

Make no mistake, Monday was Mark Hull’s night.

Crossing the state line certainly had little effect on Hull, the McDonald County Mustangs’ pitcher, as he finished a hit shy of a no-hitter and perfect game. He instead settled for the shutout as he allowed one hit, struck out six and didn’t walk anyone in the Mustangs’ 7-0 victory over Siloam Springs.

The only hit of the night for the Panthers came from No. 9 batter Levi Tompkins. By that point, the Mustangs were already cruising as they built a cushion with a five-run second inning. They added one more in each of the fourth and fifth innings to make it 7-0.

Zack Peck and Evan Acuff led the way at the plate for the Mustangs with two hits apiece. Acuff did damage with both of his — both doubles — as he drove in two RBIs and scored a run. Peck had an RBI and scored twice, while Cooper Dill and Trenton Frazier also had hits. Dill drove in two runs.

The Mustangs (5-6) open play at the Mickey Mantle Classic in Commerce, Okla. at 2:30 p.m. Thursday against Kansas (Okla.).
