Sigourney Baseball Nabs Two Wins in Three Chances

6-23 Sigourney 17, HLV 10

6-25 Sigourney 1, Pleasantville 16

6-26 Sigourney 9, Lynnville-Sully 8


Things have turned around of late for the Sigourney baseball team; namely its offense.

The Savages scored at will in their two conference matchups last week, combining for a total of 26 runs in those two games. 17 of those runs came last Monday against HLV.

Sigourney’s bats were loud early and often, and it all got going when Peyton Crawford drove in Shane Swearingen in the first inning, putting the Savages ahead 1-0. One batter later junior Colby Kerkove went deep to centerfield for a two-run home run, putting Sigourney up 3-0. The Savages added another run in the first to make it 4-0, before exploding for four more runs in the second; two of which came on a two-run double by Bryce Brown. An RBI double by Swearingen and an RBI single by Crawford increased the Savages’ lead to 10-1 in the third and the Savages weren’t done there.
