City Series: Springfield High finds their stroke in DH sweep of Lanphier

May 10, 2017

Springfield High School was shut out Monday against Southeast and got just five hits.

But that seemed long ago Tuesday as Springfield High outscored Lanphier 26-2 over 10 innings to sweep the final pair of games in the City Series at Robin Roberts Stadium. The Senators won the first contest 12-2 and the second 14-0.

It wasn’t just the Senators’ offense Tuesday. Lanphier scratched out just three hits over two games. Three SHS pitchers combined for a no-hitter in the finale.

Wednesday’s games were moved to Tuesday to try and beat the rain forecasted for Wednesday. Bad weather messed with all three weeks of the City Series: the first week was held Tuesday and Thursday while the second week’s second game wasn’t played until Monday.

And while the Senators (16-9 overall, 11-5 Central State Eight Conference, 3-3 City) needed both wins to finish .500 in the City Series — a season after tying Sacred Heart-Griffin for the title — 26 hits and 26 runs can now provide a springboard for the team with just two weeks left in the regular season.
