The St. Joseph Mustangs (11-0) breezed their way through a three-game homestand and topped off a spotless weekend with a 12-5 win at Chillicothe Sunday night.

The Mustangs tallied 14 hits on the Mudcats Sunday, including a home run from Darius Freeman.

St. Joseph Christian graduate Camden Lutz started Sunday's game, striking out six and walking only one through five innings. He allowed six hits and three earned runs.

East Buchanan alum Broncho Whitt tossed a scoreless eighth inning, striking out two.

The Mustangs also beat Chillicothe 7-6 on Saturday night at Phil Welch Stadium in come-from-behind fashion.

St. Joseph trailed 6-3 entering the bottom of the ninth, but scored four runs in the final frame, including a walkoff sac fly by Logan Miller, which scored Trevor McCollum.

Bishop LeBlond alum Jaren Guck was the winning pitcher on Saturday, tossing a scoreless ninth inning with two punchouts.

St. Joseph had no trouble on Friday, blowing out MINK League newcomer Warren County, 15-1 in seven innings. The Mustangs benefitted from five Warren County errors.

The Mustangs' pitching staff also combined for 12 strikeouts, including seven from starting pitcher and Mid-Buchanan product Denton Biller.

St. Joseph, now 11-0 on the season, is off Monday before a road game at Jefferson City Tuesday. That game will start at 7 p.m.
