After missing one another in the Butch Foster Memorial Baseball Classic, the Basehor-Linwood and Bonner Springs baseball teams finally met for a late-season league doubleheader on Tuesday that didn’t disappoint.

The Braves (2-13) mounted a late rally in the opener, scoring nine runs in the final two innings, but the Bobcats (5-7) used a nine-run sixth to maintain their lead and cap a 15-11 victory. BLHS clinched a sweep with an 11-4 win in the nightcap.

BSHS senior Luis Gardea pulled within one stolen base of the school record on Tuesday. In the afternoon’s first game, Gardea went 3-for-5 with a double and a pair of runs. Logan Terrell went 3-for-4 in the game with three stolen bases and a double.

The Bobcats’ sweep made it three victories in a row, following Saturday’s 12-5 win against Tonganoxie in the Butch Foster Memorial Baseball Classic’s seventh-place game.

In Tuesday’s opening victory, both Joe Merino and Tanner Garver scored three runs to lead the Bobcats. Bryan Crowe hit a triple in the second inning and a double in the third to augment the BLHS attack.

In the second game, BLHS got out to a 9-1 lead through two innings and never let go of its grip. Garver led the way going 3-for-4 with two doubles, a triple, three stolen bases and three runs scored.

Seagar Smith also went 3-for-4 with a double and Zac Hevel went 2-for-4 with four stolen bases and two runs scored.

For the Braves, Gardea lead the way in going 2-for-4 with a triple and his record-breaking stolen base, which came at home plate in the third inning.

Both the Bobcats and Braves put a pair of players on the Butch Foster Memorial Baseball Classic’s All-Tournament team.
