The Bismarck Senators had no shortage of offense during Monday’s doubleheader with Jamestown at Municipal.
The Senators took the first game 10-7 and looked to complete the sweep.
Things were scoreless in the bottom of the first until Bismarck’s Mark Sammons delivered a fielder’s choice to bring home the first run of the game.
Later in the inning with runners on first and third, Jamestown’s pitcher stepped off the rubber and caught the runner at first in a pickle, but while the pickle ensued, Nate Burkhardsmeier raced home to make it 2-0 Senators.
In the same inning, Jamestown’s shortstop committed an error trying to field a grounder, allowing Sammons to come home. That made it 3-0 Senators, and the team would only increase their lead throughout the night. The Senators would complete the sweep of Jamestown with a 8-0 win in game two.
The Senators head to Kansas Wednesday morning for the Central Plains District Tournament.
