GALVA — Sedgwick’s Cardinals had their hitting shoes on Friday in sweeping a doubleheader from host Canton-Galva.

The Cardinals were a 17-4 winner in Game 1. C-G was down 8-0 when it scored four runs in the fourth, but Sedgwick responded with nine in the sixth.

The Eagles’ offense has hit a snag, as Nick Bray, Reed Wiens and Caleb Sovde had the only hits. Tanner Klingensmith, the first of three pitchers, took the loss, allowing four runs in two innings.

The second game was closer, but five unearned runs led to the Cardinals’ 10-3 victory. Sovde, Connor Farnham and Jacob Dailey had the Eagles’ hits. Dailey took the loss, though he pitched much better than the score indicated.

It doesn’t get any easier for the Eagles Tuesday when red-hot Little River comes to town.
