Short-handed Newton falls to red-hot Saydel 6-4
For six innings on Friday, it appeared the Newton baseball team may have put an end to Saydel’s recent win streak. Saydel remembered that a game consists of seven innings, however.
With the Cardinals (14-17) leading 4-3 in the seventh inning, the Eagles managed three runs and escaped Eversman Field with a 6-4 non-conference victory to win their 11th game in a row.
Despite being without senior Brian Rose and junior Andrew Clements, who were nursing injuries suffered on Thursday, the Cards were able to keep pace with Saydel. The Eagles struck first for two runs in the first inning off Newton starting pitcher Zach Gifford, but the Cardinals responded with a run in each of the second and third innings to tie it up before taking the lead with two runs in the fourth.
