The Dodge City Conquistadors swept the Seward County Saints in the Jayhawk West opener 10-3 and 5-2 Saturday afternoon and evening at Cavalier Field in Dodge City.  The same two teams will play Sunday at 1 pm at Brent Gould Field in Liberal.

In game one, the Conqs scored three in second with two outs.  The Saints trimmed the lead to 3-2 with a pair of two out runs in the third.  Tucker Livermore walked.  Jase Schneider ripped a double down the third baseline.  Dodge City’s second baseman misplayed Ranse Radtke’s infield pop up into a two RBI base hit.  The Conqs scored five in the fourth to lead 8-2.  DC3 tacked on single runs in the fifth and sixth.  Dodge City out hit the Saints 12-4 and both teams made two errors a piece.  Mason Martinez pitched four innings allowing eight runs with six strikeouts and four walks.

Game two was more of a pitcher’s dual even thought it was the nine inning game.  It was 2-0 SCCC after six.  The Saints scored a run in the third when Noah Baker singled to lead off the inning.  Jaxson Gregg singled him home.  Gannon Hardin led off the fourth with a towering home run over the right field wall.  Tristan Curless worked out of a bases loaded no out jam in the second.  The Conqs didn’t get to Curless until the seventh when they scored five runs.  Dodge out hit SCCC 11-8 and DC3 had the game’s only error.

Seward falls to 6-16 overall and 0-2 in the Jayhawk West.  Dodge City is 11-6 overall and 2-0 in the KJCCC West.  The same two teams play Sunday at 1 pm at Brent Gould Field with pre-game at 12:45 on 1270, 92.3, and The KSCB and The Legend App.
