Zac Johnson led St. Joseph with four hits, while Lucas Powers and Shane O’Connell each went 3-for-5.

O’Connell and Jeremy Monty had two RBI each, whiel Joe Koerper scored three runs.

Jonathan McCann earned the win for the Mustangs as he went 5.1 innings and allowed three runs on seven hits.  He struck out three and didn’t walk a batter.

St. Joe is back on the road Sunday as they play a 7:00 p.m. game at Ozark.
