On Friday night, the Mudcats shutout the host Joplin Outlaws by a final score of 2-0. C. Maerz picked up his first victory of the season (improving to 1-2) with nine innings of seven-hit, shutout baseball. The Mudcats scored all the runs they would run in a two-run top of the sixth innings, with Al Robbins driving in Derek Nakasato, and Robbins later scoring an insurance tally. Robbins had two hits in four at-bats to improve his season average for .395.

On Saturday, the Mudcats traveled to Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, and took a come-from-behind, 8-5 victory over the host Branson Nationals. T.J. Martin had a pair of two-run homers for the Mudcats, including a game-tying blast in the top of the ninth inning. Two National errors after the Martin blast in the ninth kept the Mudcats rally alive, with five runs scoring in the frame for the Fish, resulting in the final margin.

On Sunday night, Chillicothe cruised to a 6-2 win over the Nationals, sweeping the four-game season series with the MINK League's newest franchise, 4-0. Four Mudcat pitchers held Branson's offense to five hits and two runs.

On Monday night at 7:05, Chillicothe returns to its home park to take on the rival St. Joseph Mustangs in a first-place battle at June Shaffer Memorial Park. The Mustangs took a 3-1 win on Sunday night at Sedalia. Chillicothe enters the contest with a three game winning streak, including a run of five wins in six games, and seven wins in their last nine.
