Garden City Walk Off Win Ends Seward's Season
05/12/2014

Unfortunately for Seward fans, it was a fitting end to the season.  The Saints were sloppy in a 7-6 walk off loss to rival Garden City Sunday afternoon at the Region 6 Baseball Tournament at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium in Wichita.  It was Seward's shortest ever outing in the Wichita portion of the tournament as the Saints were eliminated in three games going 1-2 in Wichita.  Seward committed four errors while their starting pitcher walked the first two men and beaned the third man to come to the plate.  Garden scored a run in the bottom of the ninth to win it. 

Seward scored first when Creighton bound Kevin Connolly doubled home a run.  But the two walks, a bean ball, and wild pitch helped the Broncusters score two in the first without a hit.  The Saints struck for two in the third to take a 3-2 lead when Brandon Rix singled to right to drive home two runs.  The Saints addeded two more in the fourth to lead 5-2.  Reed Thompson doubled home a run and Brent Williams singled home a run.  Garden scored two in the fourth to make it 5-4 in an inning which included an error.  Seward tacked on a run in the sixth to lead 6-4 when Jake Fuller raced home to score on a wild pitch.  Seward did not have a hit in the last three innings.  Garden scored two unearned runs in the seventh thanks to a Seward error to tie the game 6-6.  Garden walked off in the ninth after a lead off walk, a bunt, and a single. 

Seward's Chris Juracek came in relief in the first and pitched five and two-thirds allowing two runs in the game for his best outing as a Saint. 

Seward finishes 32-29 and 38-21 Garden City moves on to face Johnson County Monday.
