A two-run seventh inning for Chillicothe broke a 3-3 tie and proved to be enough for the visitors on Friday night.
ST. JOSEPH, Mo. - The Mustangs season-high seven-game win streak came to an end Friday night in a 5-4 loss to Chillicothe.
The Mudcats scored on a fielder's choice and an error in a two-run seventh inning that proved to be the difference.
St. Joseph (25-9, 18-9 MINK) mounted a rally in the eighth inning when Brady Anderson singled, stole second and third, then scored on an Evan McDonald single. McDonald, the tying run, was stranded at first base to end the inning.
Miles Kilgore took the loss as he was charged with all five runs, four earned, in six-plus innings of work.
The Mustangs looked like they might run away with the game in the bottom of the first inning. McDonald singled, stole second, then moved up to third on a wild pitch. He came around to score on a Davey Casciola single, and Connor Bacon drove in Casciola to open a two-run lead.
McDonald, Davey Casciola and Kyle Uhrich all finished the game with two hits apiece.
The Mustangs are back home once again Saturday evening with a 7pm matchup against the Nevada Griffons. That is also Public Safety Night. All police and firefighters will receive two free tickets to the game with work ID present. A SJPD-SJFD slow pitch softball game will precede the Mustangs at 5pm.
