Barton Baseball digs deep for Sunday sweep in splitting series at Garden City

Barton Baseball digs deep for Sunday sweep in splitting series at Garden City

Facing uncharted waters in the 2017 season, the No. 18 ranked Barton Community College baseball team rose to the challenge this past weekend earning a four-game split at Garden City Community College.  Dealt its first one-day sweep of the season as the Busters grabbed Saturday's pair of games 4-1 and an eight run comeback for a disheartening 15-14 twelfth inning defeat, the Cougars answered Sunday's call to action with a 4-0 shutout before a series finale 4-1 victory.  The series split leaves Barton at 7-5 in conference play and 23-9 overall while Garden City moves to 10-6 in the Jayhawk and 22-14 on the season.  Barton will step out of conference play for its next contest, traveling to McPherson on Wednesday for a 3:00 p.m. nine inning contest against the junior varsity squad of McPherson College.  The Cougars next conference action comes this weekend as No. 8 ranked Hutchinson Community College rolls in to Lawson-Biggs Field for a four game series with 1:00 p.m. doubleheaders on both Saturday and Sunday.
