The St. Joseph Mustangs scored six runs over the final four innings to overcome a 6-0 deficit, but it wasn’t enough as a single run in the eighth gave Clarinda a 7-6 win Tuesday night in Clarinda, Iowa.

St. Joseph is 0-8 against the A’s this year.

The Mustangs were led by a 2-for-5 night by Jake Grauberger. Clarinda held the Mustangs to just seven hits, and the bottom third of the lineup didn’t produce a hit.

Travis Walker led the A’s with a 3-for-5 night. Ryan David added three RBIs. Five A’s finished with multiple hits.

The A’s scored two in the second after falling behind 1-0, and they added four in the fourth for a 6-1 lead. St. Joseph score two in the sixth and seventh to pull within 6-5, but Clarinda added a run in the eighth. The Mustangs added one in the ninth, but came up just short.

The Mustangs host Chillicothe at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
