Saints Enjoy Return to Home Field

KSCB News - March 23, 2010 12:00 am

A return home to Brent Gould Field and Jayhawk West competition did the Saints some good Monday. After a 1-6 road trip in Texas and Oklahoma, the Saints took two from the Barton County Cougars Monday. The Saints won the first game 7-5 and took game two 13-9. In game one, Luke Campbell’s two RBI double in the bottom of the sixth proved to be the difference. Seward built a 7-3 lead going to the seventh and then held on to win. Campbell says a return home helps. “I think just being back at home just knowing we have to get things rolling after a long road trip help us,” Campbell said. Right hander Camron Maldonado pitched the Saints to the win going six innings improving to 4-2. In game two, Barton out hit Seward 16-14 and Seward commited four errors but the Saints were more oportunistic. The Saints’ big inning was a six run second inning. Seward led 8-4 after two innings. Kelby Tomlingson, Quay Grant, and Daniel Bruce had three hits a piece. Bruce finished 4-6 on the day with three RBI’s. Bruce says he got some fatherly advice. “For a while I was struggling,” Bruce said. “I was having a good batting practice but couldn’t transfer it to the field. My dad’s in town this weekend and I talked to him and he said you just have to figure it out and bring it to the field and shorten your swing.” Todd Glime hit a two run homer for his second of the season. Seward improves to 13-14 overall and 9-1 in the Jayhawk West while Barton falls to 13-8 overall and 6-4 in the Jayhawk West. The same two teams play again Tuesday at 3 PM on Brent Gould Field. Both game air on kscbnews.net while game two will also air on Talkradio 1270.
