Clarinda struck for five runs in the sixth inning Monday, July 1, and went on to earn a 9-7 home win over Jefferson City.

The A’s trailed 5-4 in the game heaading into the pivotal inning. The Renegades managed to cut the 9-5 deficit in half with two runs in the top of the ninth inning before Charlie Kiefer recorded the final out to earn the save.

Noah Menchaca smacked his third dinger of the season on his way to driving in three runs for the A’s. Nathaniel Bentura also chipped in with three hits.

Casey Candiotti worked seven innings to pick up the win.

However, Jefferson City was able to split the series with a 6-5 win Tuesday, July 2, in Clarinda.

Menchaca plated three runs for the A’s, while Nick Barendrick hit a home run and had two RBIs.

The A’s were scheduled to host Sedalia Wednesday, July 3. The game was rained out, but the two teams participated in a Home Run Derby prior to the annual holiday fireworks display.

Clarinda then went on the roak for a three game series at Ozark. The Generals swept a doublheader Friday, July 5, and then pulled out a 4-3 win Saturday, July 6, in 12 innings.
