Saints Bounce Beavers and Take Conference Lead
04/08/2013

Alex Scanlan

It was another wild weekend in Pratt.  It typically is a crazy weekend when the Saints play at Pratt, and this weekend was no different.  Seward split with Pratt Saturday winning 12-1 in five innings but losing 18-15 before the Saints swept the Beavers Sunday 5-2 and 6-5 to take the series 3-1.  The Saints are 16-8 in the Jayhawk West and move one game ahead of 15-9 Dodge City who lost 3-4 at home to Butler. 

Saturday, the Saints won the first game 12-1 in five innings.  Tyler Wiedenfeld (8-2) used just 52 pitches for the win.  Alex Scanlan was 3-3 while Bryson Allen and Francisco Balanos both had two hits which included a triple.  Devan Nelson, Mason Marshall, and Johnny Griffith added two hits a piece. 

Game two Saturday was the wild game of the weekend.  Seward vaulted to a 13-5 lead going to the bottom of the seventh before PCC chased home seven runs.  Seward still led 15-14 going to the bottom of the ninth but Pratt's Jordan Crouch hit a game winning grand slam.  It was his third home run of the game and he drove home eight runs.  Troy Owen was 3-5 with two doubles and two RBI's in the loss. 

Hayden Howard (4-3) picked up a weary Saints bullpen Sunday pitching the distance in a 5-2 win.  Seward scored three in the first and single runs in the second and third to build a 5-0 lead.  Troy Owen was 2-4 with a double and an RBI. 

Garrett Smith and Adam Guay stepped up big time in the second game Sunday at Stanion Field.  Smith who had a 16.50 ERA coming into the game pitched four and one-third innings allowing two runs with four strikeouts and no walks.  Adam Guay went three and two-thirds allowing one earned run and Tyler Wiedenfeld came on for a scoreless ninth.  Seward appeared to have collapsed in the bottom of the eighth allowing two runs on three errors to make it 5-4 going to the ninth.  But Seward scored two in the ninth.  Bryson Allen doubled home the tying run and Devan Nelson hit a sacrifice fly to drive home the lead run.   Alex Scanlan was 2-5 with two RBI doubles in the win.  Bryson Allen added two hits including an RBI double. 

Seward is 22-21 overall and Pratt falls to 15-16 overall and 8-12 in the Jayhawk West. 

Seward hosts Clarendon Wednesday at 3 p.m. at Brent Gould Field.
