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.
