The Seward County Saints baseball season came to a close on Monday with an 8-6 loss to Hutchinson. Seward would have needed two victories to win the Region VI title, while Hutch just needed one win.
The Saints took an early 2-0 lead, but Hutch scored the next six runs to take a 6-2 lead. Seward was then down to their final out trailing 6-2 with nobody on base when they rallied to tie the game at six to send the game into extra innings.
Neither Seward or Hutch scored in the tenth or eleventh, but the twelfth belonged to the Blue Dragons as they pushed across two runs and never looked back.
The Saints finish their season 33-30 and will still hang a Jayhawk West Championship banner.
