(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) For the second consecutive night, the Mustangs (2-1) received a solid outing from their starting pitcher, but the bats were quiet.
St. Joseph was held to just three hits in Saturday's 5-2 loss to Clarinda.
The Mustangs' Kyle Jackson went seven innings allowing just two runs and striking out four batters, but was still the losing pitcher.
Mark Robinette drove in St. Joe's lone run on a double into the left field gap in the first inning scoring Emilio Villanueva.
Clarinda came back by scoring a run on a passed ball in the fifth inning, and another on a fielder's choice in the sixth inning.
The Mustangs will try to get back into the win column Sunday evening with a game at Nevada.
