Take one hit away from the Hutchinson in the final game of a four-game series, and Seward would have swept the Blue Dragons.

But that one hit was costly.

Trailing 3-2 in the final game of the series, Hutchinson’s G. Guild hit a grand slam in the sixth inning to stave off the Seward sweep.

The Saints added two more runs in the seventh to cut the lead to 6-5, but Seward could not score the tying run and lost the one-run affair.

Bryson Allen hit a double and a triple ina three-for-four performance at the plate and scored four of Seward’s five runs.

In the opening game of the Saturday twinbill, Seward dominated the Blue Dragons, 9-0.

The Saints belted out 17 hits and took advantage of two Hutchinson errors in the win.

Allen tripled in the first game as well.

Seward scored two int he first and did not score again until  the fifth when six Saints crossed the plate.

Seward added another run in the sixth for the shutout win.

Seward stayed a half game behind Dodge City in the Jayhawk West.

The Saints will travel to Clarendon Wednesday and will return to Jayhakw West action over the weekend witha  four-game set in Pratt.

The Saints will return to Brent Gould Field April 10 when Calrendon makes the trip to Liberal.
