Seward County baseball continued their hot streak at the plate on Saturday as they made the hour-long trip down the road to Garden City to finish what they started a few days ago at home and thanks to some big home run swings from Cameron Cartwright and Nathan Hopkins, the Saints were able to complete their series sweep over the Broncbusters 15-6 and 14-3 Saturday at Williams Stadium in Garden City.

Kotaro Wakui put Seward County on the board with a double out to right field in the first inning to push SCCC in front 2-0 to start game one before the Saints managed to score another pair of runs in the top of the third to make it 4-1 over Garden City. The Broncbusters closed the gap down to one but an RBI single from Connor Raney put Seward County’s lead at two again 5-3 before Garden eventually locked it up entering the fifth 5-5. Keagon Pitton stepped to the plate and connected on a hard swing that sent the ball sailing past the fences for a two-run homer that handed the Saints all the momentum with a 7-5 lead. Cameron Cartwright helped lead SCCC to eight runs in the top of the eighth to nearly double their score as the sophomore infielder hammered out a three-run homer to help seal game one with a 15-6 win.

Another big inning for the Saints to start game two allowed Seward County to grab a 3-0 lead over the Broncbusters while a 2 RBI double from Wakui helped bring Cartwright and Hopkins around the bases to make it a 6-0 lead. Hopkins kept the big hits coming for the Saints with an absolute hammer out of the park for the second three-run homer of the day by an SCCC player that put Seward County one run away from run rule territory at 9-0. He struck again in the next inning with an RBI double to drive in Raney to make it 14-0 over Garden City before their opponent finally scored in the bottom of the fourth, but it was not enough as the Saints managed to retire enough batters in time to end the game in seven innings with a 14-3 run rule win to secure a series sweep.

Seward County now moves up to 22-21 overall on the 2024 season while now sitting even at 10-10 so far in Jayhawk conference action. After sweeping the Broncbusters the Saints will now take on the Butler Grizzlies with the first two games being in El Dorado on Thursday with game one beginning at 1:00 PM.  The games will air on 1270 and 92.3.
