With Seward's starting pitching, they should always have at least a chance to win a game. And when they swing the bats like they did in Garden City Friday, they have a chance to be a conference champion again. Seward swept Garden City at Williams Stadium Friday 3-2 and 13-5. The Saints are 9-5 and in first in the Jayhawk West leading second place Dodge City who is 10-6 and sweeping four games from now 9-7 Colby.
In game one, Tyler Wiedenfeld (6-2) pitched six and two-thirds for the win. Seward scored runs in the third, sixth, and seventh. Johnny Griffith was 2-3 with an RBI and Jacob Fuller was 2-4. Mason Marshall and Bryson Allen drove home runs in the win.
In game two, the Saints broke out the bats on a sunny day in Garden City. Seward wacked 20 hits in the 13-5 win. The Saints scored three in the first, two in the fifth and sixth, five in the eighth, and one in the ninth. Jacob Fuller and Bryson Allen both had four hit days. Allen tripled and dazzled defensively in center field in the win. Deven Nelson, Troy Owen, and Mason Marshall had three hits a piece. Marshall drove home fvive runs in the win and six on the day. Austin King (3-2) pitched seven and one-third innings striking out six for the win.
Seward is 15-18 overall and 9-5 in the Jayhawk West while Garden City is 10-13 overall and 6-4 in the Jayhawk West. It is worth noting, the Saints have won the first two games in their last two series against Barton and Dodge City only to lose the final two games.
Seward is scheduled to play at Garden City Saturday at 1. If it happens, it will air on Talkradio 1270 and kscbnews.net.
