A So So Weekend for Seward
04/22/2013
Tony Slaughter Brownlee Family

Two Seward starters bailed out the Saints from an otherwise forgettable weekend at Brent Gould Field.  Tyler Wiedenfeld and Hayden Howard pitched complete game gems as Seward split a four game series with Colby Saturday and Sunday at Brent Gould Field.

Saturday, before the game, newly inducted members into the Saints Athletic Hall of Fame Tony Slaughter, Brent Gould, and Charles Brownlee were recognized before the game.  Slaughter, Charles Brownlee's granddaughter, and Galen McSpadden representing Brent Gould, tossed out the first pitches.

Tyler Wiedenfeld pitched the Saints to the game one win.  He pitched a complete game two hitter as he improves to 7-0 in conference play and 9-2 overall.  He had six strikeouts.  Seward scored in the first thanks to a Colby error.  Friday, Reed Thompson doubled and Bret Lewis doubled him home to make it 2-0.

In game two Saturday, Seward struggled fielding routine infield and outfield pop ups and allowed two unearned runs in the first with Austin King on the mound.  Seward tied the score at 5-5 in the third, but couldn't score again.  Seward played poorly on defense with three errors in game one and game two.  Bryson Allen played well going 3-4 with a homer.

In game one Sunday, Hayden Howard (6-3) pitched the distance allowing one earned run as Seward again struggled defensively with three errors but won 7-3.  Bryson Allen was 2-4 with a two run homer for his fourth of the season.  Johnny Griffith, Jacob Fuller, and Reed Thompson had two hits a piece in the win.  Bret Lewis added a two RBI single. 

Game two Sunday was one of Seward's worst showings of the conference season.  Seward committed four errors in an 11-1 loss in eight innings.  Also troubling was the fact that starter T.J. Looney only pitched two innings and was lifted after coming back from an elbow injury.  Keenan Hall kept Seward in the game with five and one-third innings with seven strikeouts and three runs.  But the bullpen fell apart after Hall. 

Seward is 25-24 overall and 18-10 in the Jayhawk West while Colby's Trojans are 31-17 and finish 19-13 in the Jayhawk West. 

Seward hosts Clarendon for non conference Wednesday at 2 p.m. at Brent Gould Field before traveling to Concordia to play Cloud Saturday at 1 and Sunday at 1 on Talkradio 1270 and kscbnews.net.
