The St. Joseph Mustangs remain unbeaten, as they topped the Clarinda As 7-3 in seven innings at Phil Welch Stadium Tuesday.

The game was called in seven innings due to lightning.

The Mustangs scored three runs in the first inning and never looked back. Benton grad Carson Schmidt had another strong night at the plate, going 1-for-3 with a double and two runs scored.

On the mound, starting pitcher Landon Reith struck out seven over six innings, allowing four hits, two earned runs and six walks.

The Mustangs are now 6-0 on the season - the best record of any team in the MINK League.

The Mustangs are on the road tonight to face Clarinda. First pitch is set for 7 p.m.
