The Mustangs are tied with Saddleback for fourth place in league, one game behind second-place Estancia and Godinez with just two games to play. The Mustangs must win out to have a chance at one of the league's three guaranteed playoff berths.

Should Mesa finish tied with either Estancia or Godinez, the head-to-head results would render Mesa a loser in a tiebreaker scenario. It was hard to imagine Mesa as anything but a victor Friday.
