Seward made quick work of the Pratt Beavers on a beautiful first day of May at Brent Gould Field. The Saints beat the Beavers 11-0 in five innings in game one and 13-1 in seven innings in game two. Dodge City beat Cloud in game two so the Saints control the all important #2 spot in the Jayhawk West with one series remaining.

KP Werner walked, Kase Johnson doubled, and Wyatt Grant blasted a three run home run to center. AJ Folds singled and George Gallardo lifted a towering homer to left to make it 5-0. KP Werner doubled to lead off the second. The next two Saints reached on an error. AJ Folds infield single scored two runs. Two more Pratt errors allowed three more runs to score.

In game two, Grant and Boisvert walked with two outs. Sam Berberich singled. George Gallardo singled home a run. AJ Folds ripped a two RBI double to right center. Seward scored three in the second thanks to a pair of Pratt errors including a dropped fly ball in right which scored three runs for the 7-0 lead. Pratt scored in the third. Wyatt Grant’s two run homer to left in the fourth was his 18th of the season. That made it 9-1 SCCC. Peter Goldy homered to lead off the fifth. Richard Armijo and Kase Johnson singled and Braden Boisvert singled them both home for the 12-1 lead. Peter Goldy and Richard Armijo both singled in the sixth before an RBI single by KP Werner.
