Twin Cedars earned a spot in Saturday night’s Class 1A District Finals with an 11-1 win Thursday night over Moulton-Udell in six innings. It wasn’t as easy as the score might imply, though, as the two Bluegrass Conference foes were knotted at 1-1 through four innings before the Sabers score three runs in the fifth and six runs in the sixth inning to put the game away.
On the mound, Coy Moore was solid, throwing all six innings and allowing just four hits while striking out nine Eagle batters. He helped his cause by also going 3-for-5 at the plate. Corey Harrell was the offensive showstopper, though, as he finished his night 4-for-4 with a home run, a double and 3 RBI. Eric Clark rounded out the Twin Cedars offense with a 2-for-3 night.
The victory bumps the Sabers to 24-9 on the season and sets them up to play Sigourney Saturday night in the Class 1A District Final in Ottumwa.
