CHILLICOTHE, Mo. -- The Jefferson City Renegades scored two runs in the top of the ninth inning Saturday night, but the Chillicothe Mudcats stranded the tying run on third base to secure a 4-3 win in MINK League action.

Down 4-1 through eight innings, Adonis Forte and Colby Ott both reached on errors to start the ninth for the Renegades, as Forte scored on the second error to make it a two-run game.

After a one-out single by Jack Matousek got the tying run on base, a fielder's choice put the Renegades down to their final out. TJ Racherbaumer came through with an RBI single, scoring Ott to make the score 4-3.

However, Chillicothe escaped further damage by getting a foul pop-out to the catcher to end the game.

Jefferson City took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning. Matousek hit a leadoff single and scored on a bases-loaded walk drawn by Joe Hoerchler.

Chillicothe (4-8) answered with two runs in the bottom of the fourth, then picked up much-needed insurance runs in the seventh and eighth innings to build a 4-1 advantage.

Braydon Boyer pitched the first five innings for Jefferson City, allowing two runs on six hits with two walks and six strikeouts.

Tanner Schmitz followed with two innings of relief, giving up an unearned run on two hits. Heath Stuckey pitched the eighth, allowing one run on three hits.

Matousek led the Renegades' offense, going 3-for-4 at the plate. Luc Fuller added two hits in the team's nine-hit attack.

Jefferson City (4-7) is off today and will return to action at 7 p.m. Monday at Joplin.
