(Clarinda) -- Ryan Hunter's bases loaded single capped a four-run ninth inning giving the Clarinda A's a 4-3 win over Chillicothe, and a spot in the MINK League playoffs.

The A's trailed 3-0 going into the bottom of the ninth, but plated four in the final inning.

With the A's clinching the third playoff spot in the MINK North, the make-up game with St. Joe scheduled for Tuesday evening will not be played.

The next game for the A's will be the North Division Wild Card Game with the A's traveling to Sedalia on Wednesday. The winner of that game will then play at St. Joe for the North title on Thursday with the winner of that moving on to the MINK League Championship Series.
