SEDGWICK—While the Moundridge High School softball team stayed at home, the baseball team was on the road taking on Sedgwick High School on Monday. It was not pretty. The Wildcats dropped two to the Cardinals 14-3 in game one, and 15-0 in game two. The Wildcats concluded their regular season at 8-10.
Game one Sedgwick 14 Moundridge 3
It was a defensive, competitive game for the Wildcats until the final inning, when it all fell apart. The Wildcats gave away nine runs in the top of the seventh, that resulted into a 14-3 loss to the Cardinals.
Moundridge had the first lead when they collected two runs in the bottom third after going scoreless in the first two innings. That's when the Cardinals were on the attack. After going scoreless in the first four innings, the Cardinals outran the Wildcats 14-1, one in the final three innings. The Cardinals also put up 16 hits to go along with the 14 runs.
Collin Kohl started on the mound and took the loss. In six innings, he gave away 11 runs off 14 hits, and only pitched one strikeout. Wyatt Falco led the Wildcats three hits and Jon Schlosser was the RBI leader with two.
Game Two Sedgwick 15 Moundridge 0
In game two, Moundridge was completely shut down in only three innings as Sedgwick took game two in 15-0 shut out.
It was over before it began when Sedgwick collected six runs in the top of the first, two runs in the top second and seven in the top third. The game ended after three innings due to the run rule.
Moundridge only picked up two hits, which came from Falco and Corbin Unruh.
Cross Lintecum was the starting pitcher in game two, but only lasted one-third of an inning. He allowed three hits and six runs.
Falco, Unruh and Cody Hazelton contributed from the Bullpen. Falco led with three strikeouts.
Wednesday will be the announcement of the seedings for regionals, which will begin next week.
