MANHATTAN — The weather is warming up and so are the bats of the Central Christian College baseball team.
The Tigers feasted on Manhattan Christian Saturday for a sweep of a doubleheader, scoring 24 runs in the process, their best output of the season.
The sweep pushed the Tigers to 14-9 as they won three out of four this weekend from the Crusaders.
Central was an 11-7 winner in the opener. It led 7-1 before Manhattan scored six times in the fourth to get the game tied, but it was all Tigers after that.
Alex Rodriguez went yard for the Tigers and added a double, good for a pair of RBIs. Tyler Gniadek had a pair of doubles and a single, driving in four. Lee Stoops continued hit hot hitting with a double and single.
Zane Howard turned in yeoman work to pick up the win, fanning nine, though he walked seven.
The second game was a Tiger romp, 13-2. Clayton Lacher was on fire with a pair of doubles and a single, good for four RBIs. Martin Guevara had two hits and two RBIs, while Rodriguez knocked in two.
Sean Day worked six innings for the win, with Austin Penn throwing a frame.
The Tigers go on the road Tuesday for a single nine-inning game in Hillsboro against Tabor.

GENEVA, Ohio — Bethany College senior Kaitlyn Davis capped off an impressive indoor track and field season with a 10th-place finish in the women's high jump at the NAIA Indoor Track and Field Championships this weekend.
She had a jump of 5-4.96. She narrowly missed at 5-6.14, separating fourth place from tenth place.
"I'm very proud of how well Kaitlyn competed this weekend and how well she represented Bethany College," Swede coach Ken Ciolek said. "It was a very closely contested competition where one height separated her in 10th place and the fourth-place athlete. Kaitlyn showed remarkable resolve and capped off a tremendous indoor campaign with a great showing here at nationals. I am looking forward to seeing her continue to improve with the rest of the track and field team, as we now set our focus on the outdoor season.”
Davis was crowned KCAC high jump champion on Feb. 8, clearing 5-7.7. Her jump set a new KCAC meet record, a new Bethany College school record and at the time, earned the second-highest mark in the NAIA in 2014. Coming into the NAIA Indoor Track and Field National Championships, Davis was sitting fifth in the nation.
In addition, Davis was named an All-KCAC Champion of Character Award winner for both indoor track and field as well as volleyball.
Davis is the daughter of Carl and Julie Davis of Hill Ckity, and is majoring in physical education.
Sophomore Akela Jones of Oklahoma Baptist University won the high jump national championship with a 5-10.08 performance.
