Midwest A’s defeat Lobos in two-game series

Juan Andrés Estrada Arriola throws this pitch during the Sabetha Lobos game against the Midwest A’s on Monday, June 12.

The Sabetha Lobos and the Midwest A’s from Belton, Mo., met up for the first time this season, and both teams were looking to bring home a pair of wins. After losing a three game series to the Junction City Brigade the previous week, the Lobos were looking to redeem themselves, but were not able to keep up, and the A’s won both games.

Game one

The first game of two was played on Monday, June 12, in Sabetha. During the first few innings, both teams held the lead at one point, but during the third inning the A’s pulled ahead by one run and kept the lead for the remainder of the game. The A’s prevailed, 16-5.

In the top of the second, the A’s managed to score one run, while Sabetha scored none. The score was 3-3 heading into the top of the third.

Chaz Dunn broke the Lobos scoring hiatus, when he hit an out-of-the-park home run in the bottom of the seventh.
