Clarinda struck for three runs in the top of the ninth inning Thursday, June 6, at Chillicothe, Missouri, to pull out a 6-4 win over the Mudcats.

Trailing 4-3, Bradley McClean opened the ninth inning for the A’s with a single. After a strikeout, Jacob Flores was hit by a pitch. Then, both runners advanced on a passed ball.

McClean scored on a base hit by Joe Kelleher. Two straight errors then allowed Flroes to score the go-ahead run and leave the basses loaded for the A’s. A sacrifice fly by N Menchaca pushed the lead to 6-4.
