You can point to several members of this 2013 Twin Cedars’ baseball team to give credit to how they’ve gotten to this point in the Class 1A playoffs. Timely hitting, outstanding pitching performances, and limited errors have helped the Sabers reach the semifinals of the state tournament. Coach Matt Miller, after their win over Martensdale – St. Mary’s, pointed to two of his athletes that have made significant contributions so far. They don’t call it the battery for nothing. Miller added that their defense has been superb and base-running mistakes have been limited as well to back up the pitching staff during their postseason run. Thursday’s game against Newman Catholic is the first of the day, and is scheduled for 12:00.
