KSCB News - May 12, 2009 12:00 am

The Seward County Saints baseball team experienced a range of emotions Monday in their 10-9 victory over Colby. Seward jumped out to a 6-1 lead thanks to Luke Campbell and Jared Broadbent who each hit two-run homers. However, Colby rallied scoring seven runs in the fifth inning to take an 8-6 lead. The Saints rallied back though evening the game up at eight in the bottom half of the fifth. Colby then retook the lead 9-8, before Seward scored two in the eighth to take the lead for good off of a Travis Parker RBI hit. Parker then earned a school record 12th save on the season for the Saints. Seward is now 37-20 on the season and is one win away from advancing on to the JUCO World Series for the first time since 2004. The Saints will play in the Region VI Championship game tonight at 7 p.m. against either Cowley or Garden City. The game can be heard on Talkradio 1270 AM and kscb.net.
