Storm Baseball Sweeps Doubleheader over Hesston College

The wins keep on piling up for the SCC storm, as they swept the season series with Hesston with two wins on Monday, April 10, at chilly Christansen Field. 

A three-run homer by Brenton Davis in the bottom of the first propelled SCC to a breezy 11-1 ten-run ruled decision in game one.  The Larks took the lead in the 1st inning after Kalen Haynes hit an RBI double. But Justin ReinKall held down the defense, striking out five while scattering four hits. The Storm was also aided by several Hesston fielding errors. Alec Lee and Chris Cornish each had an RBI double to pace the offense.

The second game was much closer. Southeast started off with a solo shot by Alec Lee to move ahead 1-0. However the bats were quiet for the most part as the game came down to the 7th inning. Hesston rallied to score two runs to take a 3-3 game in the bottom of the 7th inning. 

Dawson Degnan was on first with no outs when Mason Prososki lined to centerfield. Degnan was headed to 3rd and Prososki rounded 1st. Prososki held up, and a throw from the shortstop went past the glove of 1st baseman Kalen Haynes, allowing Degnan to score, and end the game on an error.

Brock Olsen led the team with two hits to go along with the Lee home run. Josh Lallier picked up the win for SCC, as they notched their 12th victory in a row.  The team record stands at 26-8.
