Saints Split with Champs

KSCB News - February 15, 2011 6:48 am

The Seward County Saints Baseball team picked up a win
against the defending National Champions for the second time in two
seasons Monday afternoon at Brent Gould Field as they knocked off the
2010 NJCAA World Series winners, the Iowa Western Reivers 8-2 in game
two of their double header. In game one it was all Iowa Western as a
0-0 tie into the 3rd was broken by the Reivers with 5 in the 3rd and 7
in the 4th before going on to win 12-0 in five innings. Game two was a
different story as Seward picked up 12 hits and took advantage of 3 Iowa
Western errors en route to an 8-2 win. The Saints got on the board
first in the 2nd inning to take a 1-0 lead but Iowa Western tied things
up in the top of the 4th with a run to make it 1-1. The Saints would
explode for 5 in the bottom of the inning to go ahead 6-1 and would
trade runs with the Reivers in the 5th and then tack an insurance run on
in the 6th to go ahead 8-2. Bryce Ruff would shut the Reivs down in the
7th and would secure his first career victory for the Saints as they
went on to win by the count of 8-2. Ruff pitched 2 2/3 innings,
allowing just one base runner and picking up his first career win in
relief of starter Austin Beisel who gave up just 2 hits in 4 1/3 innings
of work. Every Seward starter had at least one hit as Steve Polito had
3 hits at the top of the Saints order and Ben Wainwright had a pair of
hits in his first start behind the plate for Seward. (Roy Allen)
