2 out-of-hand innings doom Cardinals

5/28/09 (Thu)

After a tough loss to Central Prairie May 18, the Washburn-Wilton-Center-Stanton co-op entered the field re-energized last Tuesday to take on Kidder County in a loser-out battle to stay alive in Region 8. After jumping to a 4-0 lead in the second inning, the Cardinal pitching staff allowed a few small glitches that snowballed into the final 15-4 loss after five innings to end the season. WWCS finished 13-9 overall in a season that has been hard on baseball teams across the state.

At the get-go, head coach Kip Erickson couldn’t have been more pleased. His team held Kidder County scoreless their first at bat, and then rallied three runs in on the offense. The script read almost identical the next inning as the Cardinals added another run to move up 4-0 after two.
