On the Mahaska Zone Network, you heard Twin Cedars dominate Southeast Warren 13-1 to move into the District 12 Final. The Sabers had another night where the offense clicked, although it was a scenario where Southeast Warren had a hard time fielding the ball cleanly more than the Twin Cedars hitter were finding holes. There were seven hits in the game for the Sabers offense and seven errors committed by the Warhawks, who entered as the higher seed.
Although the final seemed lopsided, the game was tight until the fourth, as Southeast Warren plated the first run on a wild pitch in the third inning. In the fourth, Twin Cedars plated three unearned runs off of three defensive mistakes, and never looked back.
It was a great pitching outing from sophomore Trace Embray, as he pitched six innings of three-hit ball and allowed just one run. He struck out 11 in the game. His effort and the one inning of relief thrown by Spencer McCarty will allow senior superstar pitcher Otis Roby to throw in the district final.
The Sabers will face an old rival in Pleasantville, who has had their season ended the last two years by Twin Cedars as they made their way to state. That game is sure to be a good one, as Pleasantville enters the higher seed, but will have to beat Twin Cedars in Bussey Saturday night.
That game can be heard on 99.5 FM and AM 740 KMZN and on kboeradio.com with the pregame starting around 6:45 for the 7 PM first pitch.
