HOBART | The Brickies have a running joke about pitcher CJ Komosa.

They nicknamed him "legend" because he threw a gem against Munster last year under some bad circumstances.

Komosa came back a year later and got the best of the Mustangs again, as he threw five innings of one-run ball while allowing two hits in Times No. 7 Hobart's 11-1 victory against Northwest Crossroads foe Munster on Tuesday.

"He threw well against them last year so we have a joke about calling him that," Hobart coach Bob Glover, Jr. said. "He's one of the most underrated pitchers around."

Munster loaded the bases in the first after Komosa gave up a double and walked two, but the Mustangs stranded the three runners.

After losing 6-5 to Munster on Monday, Hobart (7-4, 2-2 NCC) got four consecutive hits to start the first inning, including a three-run double by first baseman Brandon Murray.

"Coming off yesterday was tough, and we wanted to come out stronger today," said Murray, who went 1-for-3 with a run. "It was a big spot with bases loaded there and I just tried not to do too much and wait for a good pitch to hit."

Center fielder Drey Deveraux added a two-run double to put up a five spot in the inning, as the Brickies batted around.

"The first innings was a big momentum boost for the team," Komosa said. "I just tried to pitch my game, be confident, and throw strikes."

After the visiting Mustangs (5-4, 1-1) scored on a sac fly from Mike Mueller in the top of the third, Hobart responded with five more in their half.

The first three batters reached base, then designated hitter Guy Birchel scored on an error and Joseforsky doubled in two more to highlight the inning.

Joseforsky also added the final run of the inning after a Danny Stewart groundout knocked him in.

"We've been frustrated at times because of all the games we have lost in the sixth inning or later," Glover, Jr. said. "We made several mistakes in those games, but if we minimize our miscues we'll be OK because we aren't far off from where we were last year."
