  • The Dodge City Athletics completed their four game series against Team Colorado with a doubleheader split Wednesday night at Cavalier Field.
    The Athletics won the first game 14-1 and were shut out 4-0 in the nightcap to finish with three wins in the series.
    Dodge City scored in every inning but the second in the opener, scoring six runs in the bottom of the first after Team Colorado pushed one across in the top of the inning.
    Johnny Chapman hit a home run for the first with a Colorado error allowing the second run. Kevin Hall later picked up a RBI on a bases-loaded walk and Nick Osuna brought in three with a bases-loaded triple.
    Dodge City (7-10) got single runs in the third (RBI single by Nick Osuna), fourth (RBI double by Ben Gann) and fifth (Woody Drexler with a RBI triple).
    The Athletics scored five runs in the seventh inning on a two-run home run by Gann and a three-ruyn home run by Kyle Young. T.J. Schrader was the winning pitcher for Dodge City, giving up only one earned run, three walks and three hits while striking out eight to get the decision.
    The Athletics only got four hits against Colorado pitcher Brennan Flaherty in the second game. No Dodge City baserunner reached third base until the seventh inning of the game. Flaherty also gave up two walks to go along with four strikeouts for the complete game victory.
    Colorado took the lead in the fourth on a RBI single by Drake Huggans off losing pitcher Jevin Huval. Huval gave up only one earned run, three hits and three walks while striking out four to get the setback.
    The visitors increased the lead to 3-0 on a RBI single by Sam Jones and a Dodge City error, and scored their final run in the seventh on a single by Cortland Randolph.
    The Athletics now get a day of rest before heading on a three-game weekend Jayhawk League series against the El Dorado Broncos at McDonald Stadium. Each game is scheduled to start around 7 p.m.
