The Elk County Catholic Crusaders took the trip to Kaneâ€™s Pat Santilli Field on Wednesday to makeup a couple games that were postponed earlier in the season. The visitors used complete games from their starting pitchers and a grand slam in each of the games to win big over the Wolves in Kaneâ€™s finals games of the season.
The DuBois Central Catholic broke open a close game with an 11-run sixth inning to spoil Senior Recognition for the Kane Wolvesâ€™ baseball team. The Wolves, led by seniors Nate Allen, Tyler Burdick, Tyler Ennis, Loren Kumher, Andrew Oâ€™Rourke and Dan Park trailed by only two, 5-3, when the visitors exploded for their big inning. The Cardinals ended up winning the game by a score of 16-3 after six innings at Pat Santilli Field on a cold, misty Tuesday afternoon.
A minute after the last pitch, a storm blew into Smethport bringing with it hail, wind, and rain as the Hubbers and Kane Wolves scattered to find shelter. Although the Wolves had the bases loaded in the top of the seventh, they couldnâ€™t score as Smethport got the win 11-4.
The Kane Wolvesâ€™ baseball team trailed the Smethport Hubbers 10-6 going into the top of the seventh inning before the storm hit. While Mother Nature unleashed terrific winds and driving rain as the game was called, the visiting Hubbers unleashed a barrage at the plate, scoring seven runs before the game was called with the score 17-6.
